There you go everyone! Fork away :)
Im terrible with fritzing for the record...
Sorry about the picture size by the way, i dont get why it resizes when i send them from my phone..
Oh and so sorry about the late reply, i had sync turned off on my phone! Which apparently doesnt load Google+ posts in the notification bar.
How to test if it works for you: Run it in the serial monitor..let it take a reading(should be 0), then lick your finger and hold the probe..when it takes the next reading it should be wet(should be over 300). Please also note the lines at the bottom that say delay(300000); for a 5 minute wait between readings, when testing it, i usually have that set to delay(15000); which is 15 seconds, so i can check to make sure both leds work + the rest of the circuit)
Future plans: Since i know how to do this now, i want to make it with like..oh...16 probes or something! With shift registers, and even specific LED's for which plant was dry. Hell i could even add a web server or something that could notify me if its dry..that lil arduino can do damn near anything. and +Matt Lorence
that was the original idea..if i didnt break my own pump ! Id love to see that +Json Marruffo
! I know python MUCH BETTER then i know C++ for the arduino, sadly i dont have a RasPI yet..http://www.instructables.com/id/Garduino-Gardening-Arduino/
This is where i got my idea from, its become its own kit now, the GrowerBot! I shoulda gotten one for christmas :P
