Overwatering is the #1 plant killer!

Make your plant happy and your life easier with a soil moisture meter. No more guessing if the plant is ready or not for a drink!

Meter Instructions

Do not keep the meter in the soil. Use it only to test the soil. Test the soil regularly.

Stick the meter as deep as you can around a plant, in a few spots, close to its stems without hitting the bottom of the pot.

If the meter reading is in a suggested zone for your plant type, water it.

If the reading is above a suggested zone, wait for a few more days and test the soil again.

You can find detailed instructions on how to use this tool here.

Gift for our NYC friend

We're glad we went to My City Plants for a gift to celebrate our friend's office move. We purchased a Corn Plant in a tall cubical planter in the hopes that the plant could reach a window. Our friend was thrilled and the pictures look wonderful. We also appreciated the very personal level of communication we were able to achieve with the company through their very responsive help desk when setting up the details of the order.

Dear Sonia,
Thank you very much for taking the time to provide your feedback.
We are so happy that your friend loved the green gift and you are pleased with our service.
Green Cheers!
