Recently, indoor systems for growing plants have emerged as a promising approach to address the problems related to extreme weather conditions outdoors. However, such systems must manage the plants surrounding environments to satisfy the environmental and the economical requirements. In this line, any proposed solution must address challenging factors such as plants diseases and unordinary climate situations. In this paper, propose an internet of things (IoT) indoor system that can be used to facilitate the plant growing process. The proposed system is designed to provide alternatives for outdoor climate dependency such as the vitamins provided through sunlight. Moreover, renewable energy sources (sunlight) are employed to reduce the impact on the environment. With the help of several types of sensors, the system continuously monitors the plants through their growing journey. Whereas actuator devices are employed to control the plant-feeding process based on the sensors’ reported values. All the collected data will be uploaded to the cloud for analysis, utilizing a website. Additionally, the architecture of the provided system eliminates the need for human involvement, which has a degrading effect on the plant growing process.
