Thirsty Plant Kit


A great first lesson in electronics and a handy way to boost your green credentials, the Thirsty Plant Kit ensures you’ll never forget to water your houseplants.

How often have you bought a plant, brought it home, whispered that you love it and then watched it die. It’s not your fault, of course. Plants are idiots. They won’t tell us when they need watering.

At least, that was the case until now. Thanks to the Thirsty Plant Kit you can finally set up a working system of communication between you and your begonias – and learn a thing or two about electronics along the way.

This simple, solar-powered kit works by illuminating an LED when the soil becomes too dry. So before the leaves even start to crinkle you can be in there with a watering can.

A great introduction to electronics, this simple system takes around an hour to build. And thanks to the included solar-panel it’s completely self-sustaining. Hope you’re taking notes, plant. 

The Lowdown:

  • All of the components you need to build your own solar-powered plant-thirst detector
  • When your plant is dry (or thirsty), a flashing LED is triggered to remind you to water it
  • Takes around 1 hour to build
  • Great introduction to electronics
