The DRiWATER Gel Pac: Convenient, Easy, Effective

DriWater is water bound into a gel with food grade binders.  When the gel comes in contact with the soil, it slowly breaks down and turns back into water.  This time release systems keeps the soil moist without the water evaporating or running away from the roots of your plant.

As every plant has different water requirements and every house is kept at different temperatures, we have created a standardized chart. Keep in mind that if your plant is in direct sunlight it probably will require more water. The more you become familiar with the product, the easier it gets deciding on the quantities your house plants will want.

Hints & Tips

The process for DriWater to liquefy takes a few days, so if you are leaving for Vacation, its best to apply your DriWater a few days before you leave, then water right before you head out when using on outdoor plants.

Going away for under 2 weeks or watering a 4” pot?

Remove the gel from the plastic wrap and slice in ½ lengthwise, take each ½ and lay on the soil.  Cover the gel with a plastic kitchen wrap.

For tiny pots you can try slicing the Gel Pac in ½ and standing the gel up on end, you may need to use a toothpick to keep it from tipping.

A few questions we are asked by homeowners:

What if my child or pet eats DriWater?

DriWater is all natural and mostly harmless to pets and humans.  If DriWater is eaten, indigestion may occur. 

Can you overwater using DriWater?

If you are watering indoor potted plants in addition to using DriWater there is a chance of overwatering. 

Why do some plants need additional water and others do not?

Flowers, Vegetables and some potted plants have high water requirements, when you use DriWater on these types of plants it becomes a supplement to the watering. 

When I opened my order one of the gel pacs had opened, what do I do?

Occasionally the box your order arrived in has been well abused by the delivery company.  The product can be used right away or you can use kitchen wrap to cover the opened area if you are using within a week.  If you are not using the product right away, call DriWater.
