Chopsticks Are All You Need To Stop Overwatering Your Plants
Wooden chopsticks are an effective and low-cost tool for assessing the moisture level of indoor plants, thus preventing overwatering with minimal hassle.
To use this method, insert a wooden chopstick into the soil near the plant's base and twist it gently. Then, observe the length of the chopstick upon removal.
If the chopstick comes out damp or with soil clinging to it, the plant has sufficient moisture. However, if it's mostly clean and dry, the plant will need a
thorough soaking.
This method offers a non-intrusive way to gauge moisture without disturbing the plant's root system, which is often a concern with other tools like fingers or
moisture meters.
