We are planning on making an orchid placement aid tool in order to determine the best place to put an orchid in a home. Orchids are incredibly finicky plants that will burn easily if placed in too much sunlight and wither if placed in too little. If they do not get adequate humidity then they will be prone to yellowing and become sickly as well. Therefore, using a light and humidity sensor, we will be able to detect the optimal place in a home to place the orchid and adjust accordingly. We will be using Arduino Wifi to place the results on ThingSpeak as well.

We will need a humidity sensor, the DHT11 Humidity Sensor would be preferred.
