The degradable Carton printed with soy ink, is perfect for remote plantings, hillsides and projects requiring high survival rates with low costs. Habitat restoration projects benefit by planting the water source with the trees. This insures up to 90 days of water during the critical initial establishment period. The degradable Carton has a low-visibility design to blend with the native environment. Designed specifically to meet the needs of State & Federal forest lands.


The DRiWATER CARTON is ideal for:

  • Remote Locations
  • Native Plant Establishment
  • Erosion Control

How to Use

Dig a planting hole to proper depth for plant.

Water the hole thoroughly. Carefully cut the bottom off the carton where indicated, exposing the DRiWATER

Place plant in hole and install Quart as shown. The bottom of the Quart should be directly against the root mass. When using multiple Quarts, place at equal distance around root mass.

Backfill with soil being careful not to press the DRiWATER out of carton. The top of the carton may be above or below the soil level. Water again.


DriWater is a 100% natural, non toxic product used for watering plants. It was invented by a well known food chemist who recognized the potential of cellulose gum he was using to thicken peanut butter. He tested and applied his theory that water could be suspended as a gel and released over time as naturally occurring microbes in the soil fed on the cellulose and released the suspended water into the soil.

The patented DRiWATER product is made from 98% purified water and 2% food grade ingredients. The food grade ingredients bind the water into a solid gel that provides consistent subsurface irrigation to plants for up to three months. DRiWATER is not an absorbent polymer nor a wetting agent-DRiWATER is natural and environmentally safe.

Providing continual moisture delivery without the cost and need of installing remote drip systems that have a tendency to malfunction in remote environments due to pests, landslides, and blockages. Our customers have reported increased survival rates of transplants using DriWater in comparison to drip alone.

DriWater is also useful in establishing native plant material where permanent irrigation is not required, and for new plant material in existing landscape areas.


Contains 97.6% potable water 2% cellulose gum, .16% aluminum sulfate, .04% sodium benzoate, .05% acetic acid, and .11% zinc sulfate.
