Drought-Proof Crystals Protect Plants for 5 Years

  • Reduce watering chores and ensure plants get the water they need, when they need it
  • Protect valuable landscape plants the way that pros do
  • Also highly effective for container-grown plants
  • Works for five years, then breaks down into fertilizer, not salt

Commercial landscapers rely on Terra-Sorb to protect plants in heat-stressed, drought-prone situations such as city parks and traffic medians. These non-toxic crystals absorb up to 200 times their weight in water, then release it gradually as plants need it. And because it contains potassium-based polymers instead of sodium-based, it breaks down into fertilizer instead of soil-damaging salts.

  • Mix in 1 pound per 100 square feet in the garden; 1 teaspoon per dry gallon of soil in containers
  • Super-absorbent hydrogel (potassium-based polymers)

        Comments about Terra-Sorb:

        Helpful for garden flowers that get water, and then don't. Or houseplants on their own for awhile. If uncertain how much to use, test a few grains in tablespoon of water, wait short while.

        Cons

        • Can Overuse

        Best Uses

        • Container gardens
        • Outdoor Garden

        Comments about Terra-Sorb:

        Old tree roots in my yard force me to use containers to expand my garden. This product decreases the number of times I have to water the containers as they tend to dry out easily. Helpful when I am out of town visiting family.

        I did find it difficult to add to established containers as it is best applied around the roots.

                    Comments about Terra-Sorb:

                    The Terra Sorb is exactly as the product writeup states, but you really need to understand that when they say use only a little that is what they mean. I tried adding more and after a rain I had large clear bubbles all over the ground. So I learned the hard way. Good Stuff though.

                      At first, I was skeptical. We are on a one-day-a-week-watering restriction, so I tried it. It is great! Both hanging baskets and garden products can actually go a full week in Texas heat and drought. n Wonderful product.
