Description

Mosser Lee’s Soil Master™ Brand of soil testing equipment is the first name in soil testing. All Soil Master™ products meet exact testing standards to assure you that you can rely on the results of your soil testing. Your plants need the correct soil conditions and the right amount of light and water. Every plant has different needs, so testing and comparing the results to standards will help your plants flourish. When you notice stress in your plants (leaves turn yellow or turn brown), it is often too late to take corrective action. This is why you need to test the growing conditions of your plants often.

Why is pH Important in Soil?

The pH is important because it influences the activity of essential nutrients. Different pH values can affect soil including the rate that certain nutrients benefit your plants or leach out of the soil. All plant nutrients are soluble at different pH values. The proper pH for your plants creates the best environment to growth. Changes in your soil pH can affect how your plants grow, flower and fruit.

What is the pH Meter Scale?

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 considered neutral. Below 7 means acidity increases; above 7 means that alkalinity increases. Each pH point is a factor of 10, so a pH of 6 is 10 times as acidic as a pH of 7. A pH of 5 is 100 times as acidic as a 7. Most horticultural crops will grow satisfactorily in soils having a pH between 6 (slightly acid) and 7.5 (slightly alkaline).

What Affects Soil pH Changes?

All around your garden are catalysts for pH change, some that you can control and some that you cannot. Keep your eyes open to all of them and use the Soil Master™ pH Meter to determine those changes to properly manage your soil.

  • Polluting chemicals and debris can float to your garden and harm your soil’s pH from miles away.
  • Using volcanic or lava rock as a mulch can change the pH of your soil.
  • Using pine bark, oak chips or other woody mulch can make your soil more acidic.
  • Dust and airborne debris from new home construction can alter soil pH.
  • Runoff from and across asphalt driveways into lawns and flowerbeds can adversely affect soil pH.
  • Road and sidewalk salt are significant culprits in pH change.
  • Runoff caused by excessive sprinkling and watering also changes the pH of your soil.
  • Planting peas, beans and other legumes will alter soil pH.
  • A mulch of pine needles will make your soil acidic.
  • Some types of leaves will add acid your soil.

How to Use your Soil Master™ pH Meter

Use your Soil Master™ pH Meter pH both on your houseplants and your garden. It provides an accurate reading of the pH in your soil at the point of the meter. Check several places throughout your garden. It will help determine the proper pH for your plants and whether environmental elements or gardening practices have affected the pH of your soil. This unique and easy to use meter requires no batteries.
