Description

Earthcare Water Crystals, when incorporated into a soil or potting media, absorb and retain large quantities of water and water-soluble nutrients. Unlike most products that become hydrated, Water Crystals are able to release the absorbed water and nutrients, thereby allowing the plant to have water and nutrients available as needed. Water crystals are made of super absorbent anionic polyacrylamide that is insoluble in water. However, they have the ability to absorb up to 500 times their weight in water with 95% of this water and nutrient being readily released again for the plant to take up as needed. The crystals rehydrate with any rain or irrigation and remain effective for to up to 5 years. Also available in 10kg tubs (WA-EWC10-SH)
