The Pulse device comes with a couple of calibrations for standard media types, but we recommend that you create a custom calibrated medium in the Pulse app. This will calibrate the device to your specific media, plant age/type and what it is planted in.
This is a simple process where...
- Plants are watered until they start to drain.
- The plants are then left for an hour, the water level should then settle and should ensure your media is at its maximum water holding capacity.
- A representative set of readings (at least 3 and a maximum of 20) are then taken from one or various pots.
- The system then sets this maximum water holding capacity as a 100% moisture reading for this plant and media type.
