    Default Hygrometer & other supplies

    I'm going to be ordering some Physan. And have decided to add a hygrometer to the list. I've seen mention of these but not what kind. I'm assuming digital? Is there anything to stay away from when buying one?

    Also does anybody have any other suggestions on supplies I should have? I have extra pots, bug spray, pebble trays, small fan, a couple fertlizers, spray bottle.

    The water meter I bought was a simple and cheap one. It took me a few times to learn which plants should be at what level...but it works great if you are like me, heavy handed with the watering.

    Never thought of that. Could be good to have

    That made me think of a light meter. Can anyone recommend a good light meter brand but not too expensive?

    AllI use is a CF meter to measure the strength of fertilizer because I feed lightly every time I water.I water from a 200 gal tank.
