    I have this one: Amazon.com: HM Digital TDS-EZ Water Quality TDS Tester, 0-9990 ppm Measurement Range , 1 ppm Resolution, +/- 3% Readout Accuracy: Home Improvement

    There are other models that do automatic temperature adjustment (I believe these are generally calibrated to be accurate at 70F) but I just went for the basic one.

    I use tap only on my neps. They actually seem to respond with new growth, especially if I've been using rain water for a while prior to using tap. However, the media (lfs) breaks down much faster with tap than rainwater.

    Thank you, nimbulan. @FLTropical thanks for telling me about that as I also use lfs for my nepenthes.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    A bit off topic, perhaps, but it rained here today and yesterday!! Actual rain, in more than trace amounts. The first real rain in over a month.
