Basic kit

In the table below you'll find all the items needed to build the Small and modular DIY kit. The table shows the description of the item, quantity of how much or how many of each item you need and a link that goes to the site where I got the items from.

The table is divided into four main sections: :droplet: irrigation, :zap: electronics, :mag: sensors and :wrench: tools. All of the irrigation items are for the parts handling liquids. The irrigation items can be found in the ebay link which takes you to a collection containing the items. You will have to put in the amount yourself tough, since Ebay templates doesn't support for that functionality. The excluded items are assumed that you can find by yourself or that you already have them. The goal for the Basic kit is to be as easy as possible. The kit has two parts: the aeroponics container and the vase in which you grow plants. :seedling:

Instructions on how to put all of this together can be found at imgur.
