Step by Step Instructions

  1. Water plant thoroughly before applying DriWater
  2. Dig a planting hole to the proper depth for the plant and insert tube. The bottom of the tube should be directly against the root mass. When using multiple tubes, place at equal distances around the plant.
  3. Backfill soil around the tube. Water planting area thoroughly. If you are applying to an existing planting be aware that if your plant is stressed from lack of water, DriWater will not liquefy fast enough to bring the plant out of its stressed condition.
  4. Carefully cut the 3” DriWater Gel Pac open and remove the gel from the plastic. Dip the gel in water so it slides in the tube easily. Drop the gel into the Tube making certain the gel slides to the bottom of the tube and touches soil. Place the cap on the tube.
  5. Water plant thoroughly after applying DriWater. When tube is empty, refill with an additional Gel Pac.

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 go.

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.
