House Plant Babysitter

"' Set it and forgot it ! "

Going away from a while? Need something to babysit your house plants?
This box will automatically deliver an adjustable volume of water to four plants (or less) every day, or once every "x" day (up to seven days). A micro controller handles the time tracking and 120AC switching (via a relay). The relay powers a fountain pump which functions as the water delivery system.

I'm just going to link this to the Instructable I wrote. I need some new tools, so I entered some contests. Please vote!

Code is also in the Instructable. Give me a few days and I will update this page with the full details.


Yes, this not the usual video game related thing I build. This was a request and I don't shy away from a distraction.
