Polymer Crystals for Container Gardening

Polymer crystals (found in garden centers and some variety stores) are a tiny crystal that expands in water to hold up to 200 times its weight in stored water. These are sold to use in centerpieces and also to be mixed in potting soil to help hold water during the long, hot summer days when one cannot be available to water the plants. Good for those who do container gardening.

Some of the crystals can be spendy. I found some at the Dollar Tree for $1.
