Soil moisture monitoring – by Jannel Gonzales

For better analysis of plant conditions, the next thing our class helped with was to install soil moisture probes on the wall modules. This was a bit of a tricky task, considering the wiring and upright vertical foundation of the wall. However, there are now nine installed soil moisture probes spread out on each of the two walls. To set up the electricity and recording currents to the probes, we used a connector. All nine probes have a separate wire for it individually, which routes into a box into a slot and over to another one. I am not a science or electricity specialized student and do not know the correct terminology. However, I do know it was small little bitty whole and many many wires to keep up with. I have pictures to show the creation and set-up stages of installation.
