To Water or To Not Water

If you are like me and find it difficult to figure out when to water vs. not water, the Moisture Meter is going to be your new best friend. I have a tendency to over-water ... and unfortunately, it showed (yellow leaves!).

Basically, this has a probe that you stick into the plant's container to measure the soil's moisture level. If it's wet, stay clear from watering. I've been using the tool for the past month, and now my plants look healthier & are thanking me with nice healthy green leaves!

I got mine from Amazon (see Nest Essentials section), but you can get yours at any local hardware/ garden center!
