In the last part of this series, I walked you through how to create a program that logs the moisture levels in your plants. If you haven’t already read that tutorial, I’d recommend going back to it before reading on. If you have, you are ready to advance onto the next stage of your journey toward building a plant monitor dashboard: showing your plant data on pretty charts. That is the topic of this tutorial.
Do you sometimes forget to water your plants when they are in need of some water? I am the sort of person that writes down “water plants” but forgets about it for a day or two before finally watering my plant. My plant is alive and well but I could do better. That’s one reason why I decided to research if there were ways in which I could monitor the moisture levels in my plant soil. Moisture levels are directly correlated with when a plant needs watered: the drier the soil, the more the plant needs watered.
