Started using May 14, occasional use, every couple of days, by June 7 it was no longer working as a moisture meter. Trying to test it again and the tip came off.

        Very easy to use and a great tool for experienced gardeners and newbies like myself. The directions are very clear and easy to understand. No batteries are required. The meter measures about 11 1/2" tall and 1 3/4" wide. It will measure moisture, light and pH. I did not test the light feature because I do not have indoor plants and will be using this to check the moisture and pH of my outdoor gardens. Moisture: The red zone indicates dry to slightly moist for desert type plants. The green zone is slightly moist to moist for most indoor house plants. The blue zone is very moist and it's advised not to water. pH: After leaving the meter in for 60 seconds, you will clearly see the reading and know if you need to make adjustments to your soil's pH. Raise it by adding limestone and lower it with powdered sulfur. Do not leave the meter in the soil for a long period of time. I grow all my veggies and flowers in containers, so this is a handy tool to have in order to keep track of my plant's health. And the fact that you don't need batteries is a plus!

        This soil master is a useful and simple tool to use to help to grow healthy potted plants by helping to eliminate some of the guesswork of when plants need to be watered, whether plants have the required light and correct pH range in their soil to grow healthy. The moisture meter helped to save my potted plants as I have a tendency to over-water plants. From now on I will use the moisture meter to check if each of my potted plants need watering instead of watering based on how moist the soil in each pot feels with my fingers or how heavy each pot is. The moisture meter is very accurate and works very well as long as you insert the fixed probes into soil 3/4 of the height of a pot that the manufacturer instructions specify to measure the moisture of the soil as near to a plants roots as possible instead of measuring the top surface of the soil like I was doing. The pH meter is used for checking and helping to adjust the acidity of soil for plants that require a specific pH range soil to grow. The light meter is useful to protect plants that can't withstand direct sunlight or plants that require direct sunlight by monitoring light levels in an area where plants are located throughout a sunny day in periods of full sun and shade. The manufacturer includes adequate instructions on the back of the packaging. The length of the fixed probes is approximately 8-5/16" [211 mm] long and is long enough for most potted plants. Like it that this soil master does not require any batteries and only requires cleaning the probes off with a clean paper towel after each use.

        Mosser Lee Soil Master ML1240 Light, pH and Moisture Meter is a handy tool for your garden. It has three functions and shows pH level, moisture content and light intensity. It doesn't run on batteries and uses the soils conductivity for the readings. My problem are mostly with the planters I have around the garden in determining whether they are properly watered or I'm drowning then causing root rot. Attached to the meter are two rods about 8-inches long which go in the pot about three quarters deep. It then gives you a readings broken down into three categories. Based on this you can get a sense for the water condition and other aspects of light exposure and pH. The meter is set by the toggle selection switch directly below it. I tried it around the garden and got a steady reading, no bouncing needle reading, each time. Its really a simple tool to use, not much to it at all. As to its accuracy, as long as its internally consistent that's more important because it becomes a reference point that you can gauge over time. I like it and feel its going to help check and confirm, if I see a problem. It does seem a bit delicate, but its a good value, so just treat it carefully.
