How do I know when my pothos needs water?
A good indication of your plant needing water is when the foliage begins to wilt. It is best to water just as it begins to wilt (not after it has collapsed), and always be sure to feel the soil in addition to visually monitoring the plant.
How deep should you put a moisture meter for plants?
- From the base of your plant in the yard, gently insert the probe into the soil starting at least 4-6 inches away from the stem for small plants and several feet for larger trees and shrubs.
- The probe end should insert into the soil at a depth of half the probe or 6-8 inches.
At what moisture level should I water my plants?
It is important to note that the majority of flowers, trees, and shrubs require moisture levels between 21% – 40%, while all vegetables require soil moisture between 41% and 80%. NOTE: All vegetables require soil moisture between 41% – 80%.
