I have been looking for this 4-in-1 tester that supposedly tests moisture-level, ph-level, fertility-level and light-level of soil. I don't know how this one works but I once had a moisture-tester and that one really worked well. So, I am hoping that it will also work well - I don't want a detailed report (for that I need to send the soil to testing-lab) but at least some idea about moisture, ph and amount of N-P-K content in the soil.
I had been looking for it for quite a while, at least for about a month. Many a times, I was on the verge of buying them for whatever prices the sites/catalogs were asking. Most of the garden catalogs had this tester listed for a price range between $40-$55. I looked at it for Ebay; I could buy it there for about $24-$25. Looked it up in Amazon next.
The minimum price listed in Amazon was $11.49 with free shipping. I got an Amazon card and paid only $1.49 :-). Really sweet bargain; patience really pays.
