How Hydretain Works

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. Each application lasts up to 3 months for season long benefits.

It then converts that moisture vapor into water droplets, enabling plants to take up more moisture and assisting in the uptake of nutrients.
