  1. just bought a cheap non digital pH tester

    i know how you mans like ur digi testers but im straight up broke:(

    am i testing the run off
    or the soil its self
     
  2. get distilled water, put your pot in a bowl or beaker or something that collect water...water your plant with this distilled water until you get leachate (run through at the bottom) that's what you test
     
  3. is it the rapitest ph meter?

    if so you stick that baby right in the soil. all the way down. and give it 30-60 seconds to read. the soil should be moist but not sopping wet. i found if the soil was not moist it did not read. it also says on the package not to immerse the bullet shaped bottom into water as there are electrodes in there.

    this is if you have the rapitest though. i'm not sure about other brands.
     
  4. nah mayn its jus an old fashioned indicator test lol
     
  5. hmmm...not sure what you're talking about then...sorry!!

    for what it's worth, my rapitest seems to work pretty well and it was only like 12 bucks.
