So i’ve now gone through two of these meters, assuming the first one was broken or dysfunctional and just bad luck. Now I bought a second one through a seperate company and am having the same problem. It does absolutely nothing so confused because they’re both rated very well and loaded with positive reviews. To my knowledge i’m using it correctly, it’s not a very complicated process, probe down into soil with about 1-3cm gap left. The needle never moves regardless of the setting, moisture-light-pH, needle stays buried to the left. According to which would be “dark-dry-pH >8” Very hard to believe given my grow light is blairing and the soil is freshly watered. What the hell’s going on here haha, user error? If these meters are known to suck, i’d love some advice on alternate methods to monitor pH.
