Next Steps

Next steps could include implementing code that detects when the user has watered the plant adequately to trigger the happy plant dance. An upgraded servo motor, or even a torque motor, would make the swiveling quieter, less jerky and support heavier plants.

The form was prototyped, but I would like the final form of the apparatus to be made of wood, hide all of the wires so only the LED’s are visible on the wood’s surface for a minimalist, ambient aesthetic.

Lastly, a live dashboard accessible through a plant monitoring application that can be viewed on one’s mobile phone would enable the plant owner to monitor the plant’s moisture level easily throughout the day. It could also have fun functions that play different music melodies and activate various dances for the plant.
