Step 1: Sketching & Mapping
Thinking about how does the machine work, and sketch the map.
Step 2: Preparing
And I need a Senor, Board, Cable, Relaies, a LED, and a fountain Pump.
For buying the Senor, Board, Cable, Relaies for switching on or off the pump.

3,Grove universal 4 Pin converter Cable - 20CM
4,5V 2 Channel Relay Shield for Arduino
Step 3: Write the Code
Using the Arduino to write the code.
For learning about you can log in the website of arduino
Step 4: How Dose the Machine Work
To use the machine
1, Inserting the sensor into earth of plants.
2, Set the numbers for sensor(depend on needs of plants)
3, When the sensor give infomation about the earth, if it was lower than the numbers, the relay will switch on the pump to give water to plants.
4, When the palnts get enough water, the relay will switch off the pump to give water and stop working.
