Trees and Shrubs
Use the 1-2 mm (LARGE) dry polymer crystals.
For 1 gallon pot size use 1/4 cup of crystals, 3 gallon pot size use 1/2 cup
for a big 15 gallon size use 1-1/2 cup of crystals.
Dig a hole at least three times the size of the container and incorporate
polymer crystals throughout the area.
After planting, create a dam around the tree or if on a slope leave
the top side open to collect water.
This will provide a water reservoir for easy absorption by the crystals.
Use the 1-2 mm (MEDIUM) polymer.
For application before adding
sod, use 3-4 pounds per 1,000 square feet,
tilled 1-2 inches deep or 5 pounds tilled 4-6 inches deep.
Application can be either by hand or a lawn spreader.
Never use more than 5 pounds per 1,000 square tilled only one inch
as prolonged sponginess may occur.
After the first rain hydrated polymer may appear and the sod may seem loose,
however the exposed polymer will dissolve and after the roots grow from the sod the looseness will dissipate.
Vegetables and Beds
Use the 1-2 mm (Medium) dry polymer crystals.
pounds of the dry polymer crystals per 100 square feet at a 4-6 inches
of depth cultivation.
Use less for drier plants and more for
moisture loving plants.
After planting, a good coat of mulch will dress up the bed and cover any loose polymer crystal gel,
thus giving a finished look and protecting the polymer crystal gel from premature degradation by sunlight.
6 teaspoons of crystals = 1 ounce of dry Polymer Crystals

Beneficial to the EnvironmentWith an essentially neutral pH,
WaterGelCrystals super absorbent polymers will break down into
dioxide and water with no residual toxicity.
Save on Water and Fertilizer
WaterGelCrystals will reduce your irrigation needs and frequency
in as much as 50% as well as retain your
applied fertilizers and nutrients for plant use.
How much water does it store and release?
Research shows that WaterGelCrystals super absorbent polymers
can release up to 95% of the water
absorbed and make it available to the plant. Remember that 1 pound
of WaterGelCrystals can absorb 40
gallons of rain water or
31 gallons of tap water.
