    Know what's happening below the surface! Soil probes are excellent tools to understand the condition of your soil and when it is time to water. Overwatering is the most common reason plants perish, especially in planters without drainage holes. The soil probe not only allows you to check the soil moisture at the root zone level, but can also act as a tool to aerate the roots -- the best way to save an overwatered plant before it is too late. 

    Using the probe is easy. Simply insert the pointed end into the soil and push as deep as you can, then slowly pull up. This will take a sample of the soil at several layers allowing you to see and feel the moisture levels throughout the pot. Soil dry all the way at the bottom? Time to water. Soil sopping wet at the bottom? Time to use the probe to aerate the soil by poking deep holes throughout the soil mass to allow excess moisture to escape and air to penetrate the lower root mass.

    Known and loved by professional horticulturists for decades, soil probes are an important tool for your plant parenting journey. Forget unreliable moisture meters, this low-fi beautiful tool will help you become an expert caregiver with thriving plants.
