Improper watering practices – both under and over watering – is one of the
biggest challenges to keeping new plants healthy.
By managing soil moisture, Hydretain provides numerous benefits to improve plant survival.
and watered into the root zone, Hydretain functions to condense soil moisture back into plant usable water
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.

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.
