How to determine whether you need to water your houseplant or not?

Hello friends. I always have a problem to see when it’s time to water my houseplants. Usually I check the soil with my fingers, but I think there should be a better way to undestand when the soil is dry, how much dry and when it is the best time to water my plant.  What do you use?

    Peter, you need to get a moisture meter. Moisture meters are very useful for the home gardening enthusiast. Most moisture meters are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. They are really helpful in planning day-to-day watering and detecting problematic soil conditions.  The meters, which tell you if the soil is wet, moist, or dry at the root level, are especially effective for large potted plants.
