Why Should You Test Moisture?
One of the most common problems for experienced and novice gardeners alike is providing the correct amount of moisture to the soil. Damage from overwatering is often difficult to remedy after the fact. Knowing how much moisture your plants are getting help you get better results from your gardening efforts.
When Should You Test Moisture?
You should check your moisture levels each time before you water. If the moisture reading is too wet for the plant you are testing, delay watering until the soil is able to dry out.
How Does Rapitest Mini Moisture Tester Work?
Simply push the metal probe into the soil and note the watering number on the display. Then compare the number to the list on the package to find out if the plant needs more or less moisture. It takes only seconds.
