Enviro Grow (Pico W Aboard) review

By Marc de Vinck. Posted

And how can we not cover the Enviro Grow systems by Pimoroni when talking about remote sensing and gardening? In a previous Best of Breed, I reviewed the Grow Kit, and no surprise, it was great. Well, now there is the Enviro Grow kit with a Raspberry Pi Pico on-board ($51), featuring lots of accessories to get you started.

The kit includes the main Enviro Grow board with the Raspberry Pi Pico on the back. The board also includes an on-board BME280 temperature, pressure, humidity sensor, a Piezo buzzer, and a light and proximity sensor. And that’s just the beginning of what’s included in the kit – you also get three moisture sensors, three mini submersible pumps, a battery pack, batteries, and a bunch of other parts to get a fully automatic watering system up and running. It’s a great kit for a great price. Head over to the Pimoroni site to learn more.
