    Tips on potting plants in crystal soil

    Plants do not need soil to grow as demonstrated through the practice of hydroculture and hydroponics. Crystal Soil is a form of hydroculture. Crystal soil is a water absorbent polymer that contains nutrients which when it absorbs water expands in size.

    The gradual release of water from Crystal Soil to the plants ensures that plants drink water only when necessary and promotes vigorous growth. The over watering of plants kills plants and robs them of oxygen and if you under water plants they will not be able to transport nutrients and they will eventually die

    It has therefore become common practice to pot plants in Crystal Soil because that is where indoor plants grow best. Even cut flowers last so much longer in Crystal Soil.

    Steps on how to pot plants in Crystal Soil

    1) Hydrate Crystal Soil in water for 6 to 8 hours. Drain excess water.

    2) Gently remove Soil from the root of the plant being careful not to damage it.
