How to Measure pH When tending to lawn and gardens, it is useful to determine the soil conditions in different areas of your garden and find the correct lawn seed and fertilizer. The pH level of your soil has a noticeable effect on the solubility of the minerals and nutrients contained in the soil. Fourteen of the seventeen essential plant nutrients are obtained through the soil, but before a plant can use the nutrients in the soil, those nutrients need to properly dissolve in the soil solution. Most minerals and nutrients are more soluble or prominent in acidic soils than in neutral or alkaline soil solutions. Overly acidic soil often causes stunting and yellowing in plant leaves, resulting in a muted growth potential and a smaller crop yield as the pH level decreases. Additionally, plants grown in adverse pH conditions are more prone to disease and fungal outbreaks. Always research proper growing conditions for your plants; this will guide what ratios are needed for the best growth.

See the Light Plants obtain nourishment and energy from the sun. You can use the "light" setting on the soil tester to determine optimal sun exposure for your plants and vegetables. Simply switch the meter to the "light" setting to measure sun exposure at peak times during the day: morning, midday, and late-afternoon (before sunset). This will help determine the best place to plant or position your flora. Some common signs that a plant is receiving too much sunlight:

Dry flower petals

Burnt or dried-out leaf edges

Faded or washed-out coloration

Sparse or stunted growth

Spindly and lanky stems

Wide gaps between leaf growths

Adjustable Settings Light, moisture, and pH measurement go hand-in-hand for proper plant care. Easily adjustable settings allow you to toggle between sun intensity, soil saturation, and soil acidity. This allows you to accurate determine the optimal growing conditions for your plants.

The Difference with Indoor Plants House plants are even more at risk of improper care than outdoor plants. Common issues are overwatering and under-lighting, which can cause issues with healthy plant growth if not adjusted quickly. Determine Direction of Your Windows

South: This position provides the most light. Plants can be situated far into the room and still receive bright light at most times of day.

East: Light drops off quickly from this position. When dealing with east-facing windows, it's important to place plants closer to the window; no more than a few feet away at most.

West: Same light conditions as eastward-facing windows, but accompanied by more heat. Keep plants nearer to the window, but draw a sheer curtain during mid-day sun.

North: Provides the lowest light of any direction. For happy plants near northward windows, place them directly on the sill.
