Expanded and dry polymer

(1000-2000 microns) To use as soil amendment, mix two pounds of SOIL MOIST per cubic yard of soil. Make sure the polymer is thoroughly mixed for even disbursement. Use two pounds of SOIL MOIST FINES (powder-type) or HYDRO (sugar-type) per cubic yard of soil for mini-cells and small containers. Best results in mixing are achieved when SOIL MOIST and SOIL MOIST FINES or HYDRO are incorporated into the soil in the dry crystal form. Allow for expansion of the polymer in the container. Soil Moist plant Spikes and Disks can also be used. The Spikes and Disks are ideal for existing containers and baskets. Interiorscapers use the Spikes to reduce waterings and labor.
