Soil Moist is a synthetic acrylic polyacrylamide with a potassium salt base. It is a safe, non-toxic polymer used in all horticultural applications. When used according to the application rates, Soil Moist can reduce irrigation frequency by 50% and last 3 - 5 years in the soil.
Soil Moist hydrogel copolymers increase water holding capacity of potting media by 50% to 100% or more, depending on the type of media, the quality of water and the amount of applied fertilizer. The hydrogel releases 95% of its stored water to growing plants.
Increased water supply enhances germination and reduces the relative water loss by evaporation and drainage. It is neutral in pH and is non-toxic. Soil Moist reduces the amount of fertilizer lost through drainage, consequently reducing the amount of applied fertilizer by 25% to 50%.
Soil Moist's innovative technology allows you to use it two ways: pre-moistened (hydrated) or dry (granular). Pre-moistened, you may use your favorite water soluble fertilizer so your plants can immediately benefit form Hydrogel's water and nutrient storing power; allowing for more uniform mixing and proper application. Turns ordinary soil or even sand into a quality potting soil.
Specialty applications: lawns, landscaping, bedding areas and other large scale installations, hanging baskets, bare root trees and shrubs, tree/shrub transplanting, seed germination.
Soil Moist Fines is a powder form of the polymer that is used for bare root planting applications.
