Exclusive | Cut Your Watering Chores by 80%

  • Handy mats let you water potted plants less frequently
  • Fabric contains polymer crystals that absorb water, then release it slowly to plants as they need it
  • Mats can be trimmed to fit your container or hanging basket
  • Choose pre-cut mats or a 15' roll

When we first tested these water-absorbing mats, the results seemed too good to be true. So we asked some of our customers to try them, and they gave Hydro-Mats rave reviews! Each individual mat holds a full quart of water, wicking it up almost instantly and then releasing it slowly, so you water weekly instead of daily. Choice of a set of eight 7" x 7" mats or a 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll.

  • Made of poly-spun fabric with polymer crystals
  • Set of eight 7" x 7" mats or 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Comments about Hydro-Mats:

      The mats are GREAT. During the hot summer months, my plants still look good as the roots stay moist thanks to the mats. This was the fourth time I have purchased the mats (on the roll). I share it with my mother who also loves the product.

        Comments about Hydro-Mats:

        Bought a 3'x6' grow bed then put all my 8 hydro-mats as instructed.Planted cantaloupe and honey dew in it and my plants are just thriving real good compared to my potted plants without hydro- mat. It has been raining a lot so had not watered my plant bed for about 2 weeks and plants are just fine. I am buying the bigger size hydro-mat so it will be handy anytime I need to pot a plant.

            I used the Hydro-mats for pots with smaller diameters at the top and for window boxes on the rail of my deck. So far the pots have needed less watering.

              I have always had problems with water pouring through my coco-lined hanging baskets whenever I watered. I tried several things and even lined them with plastic. The hydro mat solves all my problems. Only occasionally will one drip some water but the water no longer pours through. They also allow me to skip a day of watering as they absorb the moisture and release it back when needed.

                    For the third summer, I am putting these hydro mats in my hanging baskets and potted plants. They really do cut down on the need to water during the hot summer months. My only complaint: wish they came in a round size to better fit my pots and baskets.

                        Plants hanging in a small greenhouse can dry out quickly, so these are a solution in case time doesn't permit daily watering.

                            It is an easy way to cut down on watering but confusing as to which is the bubbly side up.
