Application rates vary due to the type
of soil, region and type of plant.
Generally, clay soils require less crystals' granules and sandy soils
Arid regions and area subject to heat and drought require more crystals'
Wet, cool regions require less polymer crystals, however polymer
crystals in these regions are very beneficial for planting on slopes.
All rates are an approximation and with experience the planter will
determine the rates for their individual needs and conditions.
When applying dry water absorbing granules, the main thing
to remember is that - more isn't always better.
The granules should be worked into the ground to provide equal
Some crystals' users have been known to plant annuals on top of an
ample amount of granules without working it into the soil,
and after the first rain, find the plants out of the ground and a large
lump of Jell-O like substance
(hydrated crystals' gel) in it's
If hydrated crystal gel is allowed to remain above the ground,
sunlight will hasten the breakdown to its primary elements
of carbon dioxide, ammonia, and water.
When adding plant food,
follow the manufactures instructions but always use in greatly reduced
Do not add plant food directly onto the gel polymer
crystals without first diluting the plant food with distilled water.
Do not use plant food sticks.
Plants Are Suitable?
Plants which are less
sensitive, many green plants, the majority of plants which are suitable
for hydroponics, such
as bamboo, palms, philodendrons, spider plants and etc. We
recommend not using cactus, succulents or orchids.
6 teaspoons of dry granules =~ 1
ounce of dry granules.
1/4 cup of dry granules =~ 2 oz.
of dry granules.
1 teaspoon (medium or large) dry
granules will absorb approximately 1 cup water.
1 ounce of dry granules will make a
full gallon (or slightly more)
of WET crystal Gel when added to a gallon of water.
