Water Beads for the Lawn




Magic Water Crystals are environmentally safe water absorbent (water absorbing crystals) that soaks up excess  water in the soil and holds it until your grass and plant roots need it.  GR-150 acts as a water reservoir in the soil...one that can be filled and emptied many times.  The use of GR-150 will result in less care and watering for virtually all plant-growing applications.

Transplanting Trees and Shrubs

In summer conditions, using Magic Water Crystals for transplanting can reduce mortality rates by as much as 30%. Magic Water Crystals does not promote rotting of the root structure. During prolonged transportation of plants, Magic Water Crystals can provide an adequate supply of water without any spillage.

Pre-hydrate Magic Water Crystals by mixing 1/2 cup of crystals with 4 gallons of water. Let stand for 30 minutes. Fill the base of a watertight box to a level of one inch. Remove your plants from their pots and place the root balls into the Magic Water Crystals gel. For bare-root plant transportation, make sure that the gel is firm to allow good aeration of the roots.
