DICKSON - PLANT FRIENDS. Plant Friends is a moisture sensor system that monitors the air temperature, humidity and soil moisture of your indoor plants and will alert you via email or text message when your plants are thirsty.


The Plant Friends system consists of multiple wireless, battery powered sensor nodes that gather temperature, humidity, and soil moisture readings for each individual plant and a receiving basestation that logs and processes the data. I also made a mobile app that allows me to connect to the basestation over the internet, allowing me to monitoring both the real-time and historical data on my phone. The characters are powered by four AA or four AAA batteries. With careful power management and data gathering, the batteries lasted approximately 18 months. JeetShetty/ansible-role-greenpithumb.

A pseudanthium (Greek for "false flower") or flower head is a special type of inflorescence,[1] in which anything from a small cluster to hundreds or sometimes thousands of flowers are grouped together to form a single flower-like structure.
