Hydretain works like tiny water magnets, attracting and holding water molecules in the soil to create water droplets that plant roots can use. 

These “Water Magnets” keep your root zone hydrated 2 to 3 times longer, extending watering intervals of indoor and outdoor plants, flowers, vegetables, shrubs, trees and grasses.

With over 20 years of commercial use in the sport turf, lawn care and plant product industries, Hydretain is now available for DIY homeowners. 

Although Hydretain is not certified organic, it is produced using primarily food grade, organic-based hygroscopic and humectant ingredients. Hydretain ES Plus (which is the same formula as the retail Hydretain) has been certified as 93% biobased by the United States Department of Agriculture BioPreferred Program. It is safe to use on commercially grown food producing agriculture as well as residential vegetable and herb gardens, fruits and citrus trees. Hydretain Granular OC incorporates the Hydretain formula into an organic compost carrier.

Once applied and watered into the root zone, Hydretain adheres to the root hairs of plants and lawns, drawing moisture vapor from the soil like tiny water magnets. It then converts that moisture vapor into water droplets, enabling plants to take up more moisture and assisting in the uptake of nutrients.

From installation to maintenance, Hydretain is an excellent tool to minimize wilt and keep potted plants and hanging baskets healthy with less water. 

Yes. Hydretain has been used by professional interiorscapers for years and is safe for homeowners to use on container plants.

Each application of Hydretain will last for up to three months.

Hydretain is available in both liquid and granular product options. 

Apply liquid Hydretain on lawns and beds with the convenient hose end sprayer bottle. Once applied, be sure to water it in with about a quarter to half inch of water. For individual plants or potted plants, mix 2 ounces of Hydretain in one gallon of water and thoroughly drench the soil around the root zone of each plant. 

Apply granular to lawns using a standard spreader. Once applied, be sure to water it in with about a quarter to half inch of water. For granular applications to gardens or individual plants sprinkle topically over the root zone and water it in. Hydretain Granular may also be mixed into soil at time of planting. 

For best results apply as directed on the product label.
