Bonsai Moisture Meter


When you check out the definition of bonsai in the Collins English Dictionary the description you get is “The art of growing dwarfed ornamental varieties of trees or shrubs in small shallow pots by selective pruning”. And additionally “A tree or shrub grown by this method”

There is quite a history behind bonsai growing. The word bonsai is made up of two syllables which mean “tray” and “pot”. Now when you say bonsai out aloud it has a Japanese sounding ring to it, but the characteristics of the word are Chinese. This is appropriate as bonsai growing actually originated in China, but it was the Japanese who refined the art of bonsai gardening and introduced bonsai growing to the Western World.

Additional Information On The Rapitest 1835 Moisture Meter


If you are getting ready to plant a bed of shrubs or plants in your garden, plant fruits or putting out grass seed you should always test a sample of the soil in a number of locations to ensure that your soil is warm enough and of suitable PH level for what you are going to plant.

To measure soil PH with this meter take away the top 2 inches of the soil and then break up and crumble the soil underneath down to a depth of 5 inches. Take away any stones and organic debris which will affect the results from the meter. Wet the soil thoroughly with water to give a mud consistency. On the meter use the toggle switch to move the indicator to the PH point and then test.

To test the soil temperature turn the unit on and select temperature mode. Insert the probe in to the soil to a depth of about 3 inches. Wait one minute to allow the probe to acclimatize and then note the reading . Remove the probe from the soil.
