Reflect on the process of making this project. What did you learn? What would you do differently?

The project has potential to grow and become a complete product. The design of an enclose and more features can be added to the device to make give it more value to the user. I do wish to use a different watering mechanism and measuring mechanism. The elimination of the water pump would make the device even better as the pump I had was not reliable and lacked documentation. Switching to a gravity feed system would make the device simpler. For water level, I would like to add more discreet levels so you can know roughly how much water is remaining rather than only knowing when it is low.

This project is my introduction to making internet connected devices. Use of cloud functions is something new to me. The particle platform does make things easier compared to a previous attempt I made a while ago and gave up on.
