Add 1 ounce of the dry Crystals' granules to approximately one gallon of water and leave
to swell for about eight hours.
During this time the granules absorb
the water and increase
their weight by approximately 400 times.
Please Note: The softer the water the more the gel will swell.
Next, use a sieve to strain off the surplus water and allow the
gelatinous mass to dry for at least
This helps to avoid a build-up of water in the bottom of the glass container.
Now put the WaterGel
granules into a glass container and add some plants or candles, finished!
You will notice that even a ordinary glass turns into a small wonder at the touch of your hands.
Want Smaller Amount
1 teaspoon of the Medium or Large Crystal
granules will absorb approximately 1 cup of water.
Just place the
granules in a large bowl and add water.
Wait 30 minutes and you will have beautiful ice looking crystals.
Adding food coloring to the water before mixing will color the crystals to the color of the water absorb.
If you want to add fragrance to your crystals, add a water-based fragrance (not oil-based).
Range of application
It is recommended to use plant varieties which are not too sensitive to water.
Remove the young plants from their soil or hydroponics medium.
Clean the roots thoroughly before planting them in the WaterGel Crystals' Gel.
Transfer side shoots directly into
Because of the high rate of success they do not need to be left to root first in a glass of water.
Crystals' granules are available in 4 sizes:
Fine powder (0.2-0.8 mm), Small (0.8-1 mm), Medium (1-2 mm), and Large (2-4 mm) blends.
Plants in Crystals' wet gel can survive for several weeks without regular watering without coming
to any harm.
You will notice with time that the volume of your Crystal Gel diminishes.
The reasons for this are the plant's water requirements, exposure to light, and evaporation.
Further watering will cause the gel granules to swell up again. When dirty, the gel can also be cleaned.
Remove the plant and if necessary cut back the roots. Then rinse the gel repeatedly using distilled water.
Crystals' Gel regenerates itself each time it comes into contact with water.
Avoid build-up of water, don't place
Gel directly on a radiator and don't leave for long periods of time in
Exposure to light, especially sunlight, and repeated drying cycles
hastens premature degradation of the gel.
The gel granules can be colored (dyed) using food or icing color, available at most grocery and craft stores.
Add slowly and stir until desired color is achieved. To change color soak overnight and repeatedly
rinse with water until clean.
Drain well for 1/2 hour. Recolor.
If the gel develops a discoloration or odor (the
gel becomes contaminated), clean polymer gel using distilled water.
Rinse repeatedly until clean. Cover with distilled water and let stand overnight. Drain and re-rinse once again with distilled water.
Length of life for decorative purposes (because of exposure to light) is approximately 1-2 years.
When mixed in soil it serves for approximately 7-9 years as a source of moisture and helps
to improve the quality of the soil.
It can be disposed of with normal household rubbish.
Crystal's Gel is non-toxic and ecologically neutral. It breaks down after its useful working life to CO2, water and nitrogen.
Although non-toxic, it should not be consumed in either its granule or its gel form.

Crystal's Polymer Gel is extremely slippery when spilled.
Never flush or pour polymer crystals or gel down the drain. Polymer swelling could possibly clog drain pipes.
(Heavy use of `Table Salt and water' will
help to dissolve the gel)
To dispose of used polymer crystals or polymer gel simply pour into flower beds,
or mix with potting soil.
Crystal Gel is a non-toxic polymer that will not harm your plants, grass or soil.
While Crystals' granules and gel is non-toxic, it still, should
be eaten in either its
crystal form nor its gel form.
Use of polymer crystal
granules or polymer gel by children should be with ADULT
