Hydretain Granular OC



Improper watering practice – both under and over watering – is one of the biggest challenges in keeping new plants healthy. By managing soil moisture, Hydretain provides numerous benefits to improve plant survival. Once applied and watered into the root zone, Hydretain functions to condense soil moisture back into plant usable water droplets. For under-waterers or in water restricted environments, Hydretain is used to increase watering efficiency and allow plants to thrive twice as long between watering cycles. For over-waterers, Hydretain may be used to provide the comfort to cut back to healthy watering frequencies. Hydretain does not swell up and store moisture like water absorbing polymers. It will not create conditions that lead to fungus or root rot.

Hydretain Granular OC puts the power of Hydretain on an organic compost carrier for easy application. Incorporate at planting or apply topically and water-in. Each 3 lb. bag treats up to 300 sq. ft. of gardens or 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn.

Hydretain has the unique ability to attract water molecules, create droplets, and then release those droplets to plant roots, helping them to absorb more moisture and nutrients to stay healthy. One end of the Hydretain molecule anchors itself to soil particles and root hairs, coating their surface. The other end is available to grab free water molecules from humid air circulating in the soil. Once Hydretain has grabbed enough water molecules to create a droplet, the plant’s root are able to absorb the droplet through osmosis preventing it from being lost to evaporation or gravity.
