The cloud "rains" down on the plant when watering. A reservoir at the bottom collects excess water and keeps the soil moist when you're away. A hidden slot in the arm allows for the mounting of an optional LED grow light.
Inspired by the Wall Flower Mount (Click) by 3DPVDB.
I'm using this LED from eBay. It's supposed to be for 15V, but I'm running it just fine with a 12V power supply. I bought my power supply off a local shop, but any cheap power supply capable of supplying at least 500mA should do fine. Most plants would do just fine with 24hrs of light, but add a timer if you want to give your plants some rest.
The cloud and arm are printed with normal PLA, while the main body and pot are printed with FormFutura EasyWood (Birch).
I printed without support, but had some droops on Pot.stl and part of Arm.stl. They do not affect functionality and are in a concealed position, but I'll print with support if I were to go again. If you plan to add a growlight, do not auto-add support for Arm.stl as it may block the cable passage!
The parts are waterproof as printed with no special effort (tested). But I also painted the interior of the reservoir with a two part epoxy as an additional layer of protection. It's not strictly necessary, and there are many other ways to do it.
The cloud was painted over with white acrylic paint, as my white PLA has an ivory hue, and I didn't want to buy another roll of filament just for this print.
