Measuring the moisture of soil in pots
Dear Sir/Madam I have a number of indoor plants in pots, and always worry about when to water. I have seen moisture meters online ranging in price from £5 up to over £100. I would just like to pop into my local garden centre and get the cheaper probe type that just pushes into the soil and a meter on top gives a reading. But can they be any good at the price? The Plants I am particularly worried about are Ficus Elastica, Ficus Benjamina, and Amazonica Alocasia Thank you for your help Stewart Hawkins
