Soil Moist?
    #373983 - 08/18/01 06:06 AM (17 years, 1 month ago)


At the store today I happened upon a product called Soil Moist. Based on the descriptiong below, it sounded to me like it might be a good additive to casing (either bottomo or top layer, instructions suggest it would be better on bottom casing layer. Does anybody concur or suggest that it should be avoided?

Soil Moist - is a polymer designed to reduce plant waterings. It absorbs water similar to a sponge, when the soil dries the stored water is released to the soil over an extended period
of time.
Safe to use on all plants. Soil moist will reduce plant waterings by 50%.

Recommended use rate -
example - 10" pot - 2 tsp.

I have experimented with soil moist in my substrate but not casings. It worked fine in the substrate though, but you must consider room for its' expansion. Go for it and post the results I would love to hear them. Be careful not to use to much that stuff expands like crazy.

Zippity freakin doo dah
