How to grow Water Beads: Put the dried Magic Water Beads into a large bowl and cover them with water. Add more water as needed, allowing them to absorb as much water as possible. This will take several hours. The Magic Water Beads will swell up before they’re ready to use. Drain off any excess water.
Pot your plant like you would in soil, placing the water-soaked beads on the bottom of the container, positioning the plant roots over it, then surrounding the roots with more Magic Water Beads.
Do not put water beads under a grow light or in direct sunlight because heat will damage them. It’s a good idea to choose plants that prefer indirect light.
