Don't work – Garden Soil Moisture Humidity and pH Acidity Meter Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The light meter works well and the scale is in lux not lumens, the moisture meter also seems to work. to get a ph reading the dirt must be slightly damp.
Cons:
the meter is very lightly built and the prongs are rather flimsy and bend very easily when pushing into dry dirt. the acidity measuring is so way out that you should not even bother with! we tested all our gardens and fields and it read the same ph of 7 but we doubted it so we bought an expensive high quality one, and it read our dirt at 5 - 6.5! Do don't belive it! :)
Other:
Bottomline:
if you are getting it for the ph part then don't bother!
