Planquarium is a context-aware indoor kitchen garden system, where a user can grow fresh plants and vegetables without prior knowledge. Further, the Planquarium will take care of the plants that are inside it using a Rule-Based Context-Aware environment, that is capable to monitor different aspects of the plant and can provide an ideal environment for the plant inside. Different plants have different requirements therefore, we have integrated profiling systems so that a person can select a plant and the Planquarium will adjust itself accordingly. Initially, we have deployed temperature, humidity, moisture, water and light(Artificial sunlight full spectrum) sensors to monitor the plants. In the future, we can further add soil quality monitors to optimum growth. Planquarium is suitable for congested smart cities, smart homes and for people who care for organic food.
