The Ladybug Plant Feed Adjuster for hydro/aqua-ponics

by sketchy on Thu May 07, 2015 12:13 pm

Just in case you are interested, I wanted to share the first realization of my hydro/aquaponics project that measures the pH and EC of a bucket of water then automatically adjusts the nutrient and pH level for the type of plant and the stage of growth. During this process, I learned about pH and EC measurement. And - excitedly! - designed the circuits, created schematics and PCB layout, fabricated the PCBs, and soldered the chips....and...wait for it...it worked!. From this, I created an Arduino Shield. I blogged about my learnings and open sources all the hardware parts..so perhaps there is something of interest...and (even better :-) )...some folks might be interested in community collaboration.

Awesome!

Having everything work *is* a rush, isn't it? ;-)
