    This is an easy-to-use soil moisture meter for potted plants that indicates when watering is needed and when the soil is sufficiently moist. With a moisture meter in the soil, you prevent the roots from drying out and the plant from being overwatered.

    The soil moisture meter is intended to sit permanently in a pot and should be placed near the stem of the plant (maximum 20 cm away). Press it into the soil until the mark on the meter is no longer visible. Water the plant sufficiently before sticking in the moisture meter to ensure the soil is completely moist. If you have recently watered the plant, put the moisture meter in a glass of water so the meter turns blue before sticking it into the pot.

    The patented technology measures the moisture in the soil and indicates blue when the soil is sufficiently moist, and then turns white when the plant needs to be watered. It is recommended to wait until the meter turns completely white before watering again. The white colour does not indicate that the soil is completely dry, only that it is time to water again. The white colour does not indicate damage to the plant.

    The moisture meter can be used with all common house plants, orchids, succulents, hydrangeas, roses and herbs. It can be put into any type of soil that has the ability to retain water and works with ordinary plant soil, black soil, akadama, coconut fibre, bark, moss and vermiculite.

    The soil moisture meter comes in three sizes:
    Small: For 6-10 cm diameter pots that can be lifted with one hand.
    Medium: For 10-18 cm diameter pots that can be lifted with two hands.
    Large: For a large & heavy pot with a diameter of 18-36 cm that requires extra aid to be lifted.

    The soil moisture meter is a patented Japanese innovation developed by Tetsutaro Nakabayashi. The product is continuously being tested and improved in collaboration with Tokyo University of Agriculture. The product has won several international awards, including the Red Dot Awards 2014 and the Good Design Award 2015.

    The inner core of the moisture meter needs to be replaced after about 6-9 months use in normal plant soil. The core lasts longer, between 1-2 years, for plants planted in bark or moss. Open the bottom of the meter to check if the white core is worn out, and replace it with a refill core (sold separately).

    NOTE! The first time you stick the meter into the pot, it may take some time before it goes from white to blue. This depends, among other things, on how much you water the plant and the soil's ability to retain water. Small pots with normal soil can change in just a few minutes, while it may take between 30 minutes and an hour for larger pots.
