The thirst is real! Keep your flora (plants, not the board) happy and hydrated with the Circuit Playground Express Soil Sensor Mini Kit. This kit will teach you all about how to keep your plants in good condition, by measuring the soil moisture content using a nail and alligator clip, then display red or green LEDs on the Circuit Playground Express to tell you the state of your plant

Kit contains:

  • 1 x Circuit Playground Express
  • 1 x AAA Battery Holder with On/Off Switch and 2-Pin JST with Belt Clip
  • 3 x Alkaline AAA Batteries
  • 1 x 38cm long Alligator Clip Test Lead 
  • 1 x 8cm long stainless steel nail
  • Cute plant friend not included! Use any planter with soil you can place the nail into.
