    So I am fairly new to circuitry. I can solder all day long, but I moved from a degree in Electronics Technology to Computer Information Systems.

    I am trying to set up a system to water my pomegranate seedlings (which don't exist yet) when I am not away. I want a system to mist my seedlings with water every 30 minutes.

    Along with this circuit I would love to have a light sensing circuit to kick on when ever the light dropped below a certain point. I know I can find such circuits at a home improvement store, but I wan't something I can fine tune.

    The watering system is a must, the light sensor is just icing on the cake. I really appreciate and help you can provide!

    Thank You,

    I would like to note that this setup is not for any illicit use. It's to help grow my seedlings at my family farm while I am away at school.

    Do you want the watering to have fixed timings?
    Should there be a soil humidity be measured?

    As for the lightning:
    You can have a lightning system that can be dimmed by the light from outside using PWM.
