Q.Measuring the moisture of soil in pots

Zone Shirley, Surrey | Stewart7 added on August 3, 2017 | Answered

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
