We are thinking of giving it a try next time we take a trip.
For plant health and happiness, a friend or neighbor is always a great option, but if you are like us, with only a measly (but loved) 2 or 3 indoor plants - it just doesn't seem worth asking someone to come by.
DriWater is 98% water, held in a food-grade stabilizer - the time-release gel slowly allows the water re-liquefy as it comes in contact with the soil. It is NOT a polymer - it is organic and completely non-toxic.
A 9oz DriWater gel pac (enough for a plant for 30 days) costs around $2., so the price is right too.
Available directly from DriWater and at Menards.
