Easy enough basic 'indicator' – Garden Soil Moisture Humidity and pH Acidity Meter Reviews

posted by emasso on 09/10/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Well built
-No batteries required
-Robust: no easy-to-break parts
Cons:
-Light and Ph detectors could be more sensitive. It's accuracy is questionable.
-Looks a bit cheap: but for gardening you don't really care, do you?
Other:
Even if it's not 'that' accurate, it's a good indicator for knowing when there's too much or too little light, water or acidity.
Personally my reason for buying this was that I'm always killing the plants due to to much watering. With this gadget it's easy to know when the roots are humid eventhough if the top soil looks dry.
Bottomline:
Good enough product for basic gardening but definitively not for the expert gardener.
