Gardening Tools: Moisture Meter- Rapitest
Takes the guesswork out of watering your plants! The Rapitest Moisture Meter tests for moisture at the roots, where it matters. You no longer risk over watering a healthy plan just because the soil near the surface is dry, or under-watering just because it appears moist. This is ideal for houseplants, window boxes, patio tubs, and hanging baskets.
It is very easy to use, just simply insert the special corrosion-resistant probe into the soil of any pot or planter. A tiny amount of electric energy will be generated by the levels from 0 to 10. Remember that soil may look and feel dry on the surface; however, there may actually be no need to water where it counts. Includes watering guide and special needs table for over 150 plants. For Soil Use Only, Do Not Use in Liquids. No Batteries Required. >
