    Works exactly like the Miracle Gro bags you can purchase, yet a lot cheaper. I saved the bag from the Miracle Gro moisture crystals, so I know how much to use per size pot or square feet of garden space. This did not come with instructions. I simply mix in with my bottom third of potting mix in my pots to be planted, then add more mix & plant. Reduces watering by half at least! Crystals swell up with water, & when used toward bottom third of pots, roots will grow deep. Crystals supply the water the roots need. Lessons I’ve learned from previous years… * Does not work after plants have been planted & you want to stick some in a pencil hole to supply moisture. Crystals swell up & out of hole, & out of pot. Looks like clear gelatin. *Does not work when mixed in top third of mix. Same reason. When excessive rainfall occurs, it will surface. Defeating the purpose. *Does not work when transplanting cells of seedlings into garden, separately infusing a little into the holes. Product swells up & pushes seedling plugs up out of holes.Read more

    Great for helping to preserve moisture. Do not use more than directed. I did at first and my soil swelled out of their pots. The Begonias did not grow. I had to start over but it was my fault for not mixing correctly. Just a warning to prevent such accidents from happening to others.Read more

    This is the gel that is places in soil to help keep the soil moist for plants in containers. This is also used in weddings for centerpieces in clear containers by adding food coloring to make the gel match the wedding colors. You get a LOT in this bag. It looks like little rice pellets and when placed in water, turns into something that looks like clear jello which keeps the soil moist for plants. I keep the bag in a coffee can once it is opened. I add about 1 tsp of the “rice” pellets to the soil in the bottom third of the container and then fill the rest of the container with regular soil. The first time that I used it, I let the crystals absorb the water so that I could figure out how much of the gel to use in the dirt because I tend to use too much when it just looks like tiny pieces of rice. 🙂 These along with some inverted wine or beer bottles of water really helps in the Texas summer heat to keep plants looking good without having to water all of the time and for less than the name brands.Read more

    Made a huge difference in my tomato plants. I dug a moat around the plants after they had been growing for a while and poured in crystals and covered them with dirt. It made my plants grow so much quicker. That is probably not the best way to do it, though. When there was a lot of rain, the crystals would swell so much that the soil hooved up. Next year, I’m going to mix it into the soil underneath the tomatoes when I plant them.Read more

    As a test, take just 10 granules out and put in a shot glass and then put a tablespoon of water in. Keep adding water after that is absorbed and it’ll fill the shot glass with water filled blobs very soon. I use about a teaspoon of the granules for a 5 gallon pail of soil when planting trees, filling hanging baskets for new plants in the spring or building flower beds.Read more

    This is the magic ingredient in all my potted plants. Mixed with plenty of granular material for drainage (I use this product with peat moss, perlite, vermiculite, cow manure and potting soil.) My plants never lack for moisture. Just be sure to use sparingly and fill soil up no more than 2 inches from top, bc it will expandRead more

    I use this in my camping bucket toilet with a little carbon and it really does the job! No sloppy bags spilling on the way to dumping them. Even without the carbon the smell is less than without this in the bag. There’s some expensive products out there that I was hoping to replace and this did the trick!Read more

    I’ve used this for about 5 years now, and I love that I don’t have to waste time (or precious water) watering my plants. Even in the summer, I can go a couple of days without watering, as long as I give them a good long soaking first. I use this on my potted plants, bulbs and even trees! It works pretty well, and you can mix some fertilizer with the water for slow release over time. There are similar products on Amazon, but this packaging and size is the best deal I’ve found so far.Read more
