I bought 6 of these testers and all gave different readings until I used steel wool on the shaft and tip. After cleaning they all gave higher readings and did a great job of signalling the moisture content of the soil.
You can test the device by submerging the tip and shaft in a few inches of water. If the meter's needle moves into the "wet" zone, no cleaning is needed. If the needle doesn't move quickly into the "wet" zone, cleaning as described.
Maybe an issue with storing in amazons warehouse where temps vary a bit. I dunno, I just know they died and you may or may not have the same problem. I hope you get a good set but just know I feel bad because I got a friend 2 dead ones and now I feel like a jackass.
Lowered rating to 3-stars. My daughter was "helping" me by checking on some in ground plants with this moisture meter. At some point, the tip was ripped off, rendering the moister meter useless. It went straight to the trash! It seemed like it should have held up a bit better, and I'm not sure I'll purchase a replacement.
*** Original review ***
This is a good quick way to check the moisture level in potted plants without getting your hands (too) dirty. Watering a plant is an amazingly simple yet difficult task to get right. I've always been convinced that waiting for a plant to wilt slightly before watering works well. However, my significant other waters based on how hot she thinks it was during the day. I feel like she's lost some plants due to over watering, but she's still convinced she's lost them due to under watering.
I'm hoping this tool will save us both some grief, and money! Even if you're on the fence about this, it's cheap enough, compared to most plants. Even if it only works for a year or two, it'll pay for itself if we can save just one or two plants in that time.
