Moisture Meter

Included with your plant to make watering easy.

We know finding the perfect watering routine is tough and unlike that armchair you bought last year, investing in a large living plant requires a little more attention. As a Léon & George customer, your plant comes with this simple and sleek tool that tells you when it’s time to water.

Designed and tested with research institutions and farmers, this moisture meter works without batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = enough water, white = time to water.

Note: Complimentary moisture meters are offered as a free gift and supplemental tool that can be used in conjunction with manually gauging your plant’s soil for moisture. They are not a substitute for regular monitoring. 100% efficacy is not guaranteed as soil composition and other variables may affect readings.

Featured Questions

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

Starting in March 2021, all large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. You may leave the moisture meter in the soil of your plant, or remove it and insert again when you believe it may be time to water. 

Find more details and information about your new moisture meter here, or purchase them on their own here.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter.
