Visuino+Arduino+Hot Pepper= Growing Box
Hi, my last project is a Grow-Box made with Visuino Program.
In this project i want to pimp my old acquarium in a Growing Box for my plantation of Carolina Reaper.
Actually i have a home made humidifier with acquarium heater (see photo).....is pretty good but i want a better one!
For this project i use:
1 Arduino Mega 2560
2 relay shield
1 20X4 I2C LCD Display
1 Potentiometer 10k
1 Heating mat
1 Little Fan 5Vcc
1 Power supply 9Vcc
You need also a little acquarium or something like that (the important thing is that it is properly closed).
I don't connect new heating mat (for temperature) and the fan (like air extractor to control humidity) but you can see the functionality of the project with relays and display.
I can set temperature in range 20C°-35C° (ideal for pepper is 28C°) with potentiometer and extract air if Humidity is over 50% (in the video i set humidity threshold at 35% for convenience)
I've shared my project on gdrive:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5tlYex_xGyFTHVRSmw0ZWo4dDQ/view?usp=sharing
