I got this mainly for my husband to use. He LOVES to grow plants indoors. He finds it fascinating, calming and loves to learn. He had a PH tester but we lost it in our recent move. He mixes his own nutrients purchased from a hydroponic store. We currently have an aloe plant that is in definite need of care. He can pretty much tell what a plant is deficient in by looking at it. It's crazy.
There is a concoction he makes where the ph has to be right. This works just as well as his old super expensive tester. The only difference is that the other one was also a stir stick so it was longer. This is so much more convenient than those stupid strips. There's no guessing, no error and no garbage.
He uses this often for our aloe plant, bamboo, orchid, and our indoor veggie garden.
