    I was wondering if anyone could refer me to a fairly priced moisture meter that works since I have heard bad things about the home depot type ones. If not let me know thanks

    your finger ... in all seriousness u dont need one buddy, just lift the pot to see if its light or just stick your finger in the soil.the cheap moisture meters aint so bad to be honest its just the cheap ph probes u need to avoid.

    I use both the lift the pot technique and the rapitest mini meter (single probe) which has a scale from 1-4. Got mine on ebay for less than $10 shipped.

    Edit: I use the hanna 98129 combo meter and so far it hasn't given me any problems. I've owned it for a little over a year now. It was $119 when I bought it, so definitely expensive and some people will speak against em.
