Plants in Crystal's Polymer Gel can survive for several weeks without regular watering without coming to any harm. You will notice with time that the volume of your Crystal Polymer Gel diminishes.
The reasons for this are the plant's water requirements, exposure to light and surface evaporation.
Further watering will cause the Crystal Polymer Gel to swell up again. When dirty, the gel can also be cleaned. Remove the plant and if necessary cut back the roots. Then rinse the gel repeatedly using distilled water. Crystal's Polymer Gel regenerates itself each time it comes into contact with water. Avoid build-up of water, do not place Polymer Gel directly on a radiator and do not leave it
for long periods of time in direct sunlight.
Exposure to light, especially sunlight, and repeated drying cycles hastens premature degradation.
