Gel Irrigation - easy way to healthy garden
Gardening is a graceful activity when we do it right. Irrigation is
one area where most people fail. It is a constant responsibility. Over-watering
can kill a plant same way as under-watering. Plants that were very
beautiful at the nursery start showing signs of fatigue at home in spite
of all the care you give. Many new gardeners give up after a few months.
Once we solve the watering problem, gardening becomes real fun.
Everything else is easy to manage. Precision systems with drip
irrigation or hydroponics work very
well in a large scale garden. But they are not practical for a
housewife who loves to have just a few vegetables and flowering plants around the
Water gel is a gardener's dream come true. It is potassium based
polymer that looks like sugar crystals. Potassium (K) is a fully bio-degradable, safe
material; in fact it is an ingredient of popular NPK fertilizer. Just
add a few grams of this wonder granules to your potting mix and the
watering problem is solved for next five to eight years.

How to Use
There are no strict rules to follow. You can add it dry or soaked. If
you are filling a new container it is better to use in gel form. Add one
teaspoon of crystals to one liter water and wait half an hour to form
the gel. Mix this gel with three liters of potting soil and fill the
container. If you are using it for an existing plant, better
add it dry. Use an old ball pen to dig several holes of about three
inches deep. Drop a pinch of granules in to each one of them. Fill the hole
and add water. Remember, one teaspoon of granules will expand to one
liter in size.
