Judging Moisture Levels by Weight
Once you have this trick down, we promise it is an easier way. When new growers are trying to learn this method, I recommend that they properly saturate whatever they are growing and pay close attention to how it feels. Once you have done this a few times, you will never go back to relying on "eyeballing" the moisture level or inserting a finger to test it. This is important as it is a more reliable gauge to use than the previously noted methods. In conjunction with bottom-watering, this method will ensure that your plants are getting all of the moisture that they need.
