• Hydroponics

    Water Crystals are a form of hydro-culture or hydroponics, which is the practice of cultivating plants without soil.

    A super absorbent polymers often referred to as crystal mud, magic crystal soil, water gel, plant gel and water pearls. You will use them for growing indoor plants and keeping cut flowers fresh. They are also for decorative purposes such as centrepieces to match your indoor taste and decor, creating a breathtaking display.

    Preferred to soil and water for their functional as well as aesthetics properties. Microscopic holes ensure that plants and flowers benefit from the gradual release of water and plant feed and as such plants grow more vigorously and remain healthier.

    Water  Crystals have many benefits, not least:

    • Water left to stand in pots or vases causes mould and mildew. This is now not a problem as the water crystals absorb the water during the hydration process and release it to the plant as required.
    • When hydrated, water crystals expand to many times their original size, reduce water wastage by controlling its availability, increase the time between watering and to promote improved plant survival.
    • Water Crystals are reusable. Once they shrink simply place them in water for a few hours and they will expand to their original size refreshing their look, and their life.
    Amongst its many characteristics, these water crystals are translucent, odourless, dirt free, biodegradable, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

    These are also great as an additive to soils and composts. Rather than water your plants constantly you can add water crystals to the soil, which will keep the soil moist. This, is ideal for your hanging plants and flower baskets.

    Typically when you pot plants in a flowering pot the mud used attracts bugs and flies and could become a breeding ground for insects as well as bad bacteria which causes plant diseases and death. These crystals help to stop this and are great for preventing stress to your plants..
