    Some expensive help with spring flowers - all-year round plants too.

    It's the 3-in-1 Soil Moisture/Light/pH Tester. I have one plant that hangs from the ceiling and I can't reach up to touch the soil without a step ladder. So I thought if I used one of these devices it would be easier to know when to add water by looking at the display. They're said to work with indoor or outdoor plants. They're designed to tell you when your plants need water, if they're getting enough light and when to water them. You have to do some research to find out what the pH and light requirements are for your particular plant, but I use mine mainly to tell me when my plants need to be watered. They don't require batteries or any kind of power to work. I bought two different kinds to see the difference and they both work the same. You click a switch to pick “moisture”, “light” or “pH”.

    This is the one I liked better and it turned out to be the most inexpensive, $6.99 as of 3/20/19. Price could change at any time.
