Soil Moisture kit at

Not sure if anyone could use this but I've seen lots of postings about detecting water. Here is a small and inexpensive kit from Computer Geeks that detects DRY plant soil. Maybe it has some potential for detecting the presence of water?

P.S. It's only 9.95 which is why I posted it here in Hot Deals.
oh that is cool, pretty much what I was looking for. I assume it's easy to copy this build since it lists the parts?

edit: it looks like you can find them cheaper when searching for "edison plant alarm" on Google. I have seen them as low as $6.
Never ordered it, I have no use for it right now. Just came across it while surfing and thought I 'd post it.
