DIY Electric Soil Finger

Today I’m going to show you how to make your own electric soil finger! What’s an electric soil finger you say? Allow me to explain: This is a sensor for measuring the amount of water in plant soil. This will then in turn show you whether or not it’s time to water your plants, or if they are very much happy with the amount of water they have right now! The inspiration for this was that I was constantly sticking my fingers in my plants dirt to learn if I needed to water them. However, this only gave an idea of the water on the very top layer of soil, no good! I wanted a deeper and more quantifiable measurement and thus the Electric Soil Finger was born.”
