Is this old news or something? I thought it'd be pretty dope to know what the NPK levels in your soil are.

Pretty neat; but I can't quite see any practical indoor uses, as your soil manufacturer (is that the right word?) should tell you what the NPK levels are out of the package.

Unless you mix your own, or to check the levels of your teas.

Guess I should have posted this in the Organic forum.

yep ganico...old news this has been on the market for years. It is fairly accurate...key word is fairly. It will give you an idea of what your levels are.

If you want a more accurate test...try your local University Ag extention. There is usually an extension in every major city in the US. They will test soil for free

Damn for real? But you couldn't of course bring them tissue samples, haha. Not sure if you can do tissue samples with this cheap kit, but they make tissue samples to check plant nutrition in the actual plant though, for like $50-$75

I never thought about the Ag department though for soils test, good call on that one

NO plant samples...PLEASE lol That rapitest wont do tissue either...only soil.

You can contact the extension ahead of time and they can mail out a kit with instructions on how to collect, store, and ship the sample to them. So you don't have to actually go down there if you don't want to (most of the time). You might have to put postage on there, and a return addy would be required, but you could always use your safe address (moms house).

What's wrong with tissue samples? I'd think it'd be the most accurate way to gauge the nutrition your plants are receiving (could be wrong bout that though)

nothing is wrong with plant samples...if the plants were legal. Not that they would test or even care, but the possibility exists...and that wouldn't be good

Don't send the extension service a tissue test sample.
