Plant Moisture Indicator

  • One of the most elusive parts of plant care can be understanding when (and, just as crucially, when not) to give your greenery some water. Expert botanists can determine a plant’s need by the look of its leaves, but the rest of us can only benefit from a tool like the Plant Moisture Indicator, which takes all of the guesswork out of determining the ideal watering schedule. To use, simply insert the indicator into the plant’s soil before watering; about 20-30 minutes after watering, the moisture indicator will turn blue — when it turns white again, it’s time to grab the watering can and give your plant another drink. This useful tool lasts 6-9 months before the refillable core will need a replacement
