Please Note:

1. Do not insert into very hard soil or touch hard objects when you insert it in the soil.

3. Please wipe and clean the probe after each suing.

We don’t use the soil pH tester or the light meter very often but we use the moisture meter all the time.  It is extremely important not to over water succulents and cactus. The moisture meter reading makes watering scientific instead of pure guesswork.  After inserting the probes you will know immediately how, if any, water is needed.  Some serious growers consider moisture meters a necessity for accurate succulent watering.

Most succulents are not sensitive to the pH level of the soil they are growing in.  Succulents are masters at adapting to their environment including soil that is too acidic or too alkaline.  Nevertheless, if you have a plant that is not doing well for no apparent reason, it may help to check the silver pH level.  The pH level test may indicate you need to add some ingredients to increase or decrease the soil acidity.

A light sensor is also not often needed for growing succulents.  It does come in handy if your variety of succulent has a very specific lighting requirement.  A light sensor gauge will help you determine if you need more or less direct or indirect lighting.

There are more expensive 3-in-1 moisture, soil pH, and light meters on the market but this is still our recommended unit.  It is accurate, simple to use and durable.
