Cleaning leaves makes good sense to get rid of dust, grime or even bugs that can harm a plant’s growth.

This coffee one is fascinating, you should cut open a few beads to see if that color is on the inside though I doubt it. George’s “Survivor Plant List” is a 19-page booklet detailing hundreds of the toughest and highest-performing plants.If you’re concerned, toss a few shovelfuls of soil or finished compost into the pile as you build it.

Here’s what the Harrisburg-written book “ Basic Composting” (Stackpole Books, 2003) has to say about packaged activators: “Most experts agree that there is no need to use them at all because nature will provide the correct amount and types of microorganisms needed for decomposition. Chalker-Scott also has concerns about the safety of hydrogels, saying they break down into neurotoxic and cancer-causing acrylamides.Limit one use per transaction and cannot be combined with any other discount, coupon, sale, promotion or any other offer.

Fabrics also inhibit the flow of oxygen into the soil, discourage water absorption during rains, and trap excess moisture in clay soil during rainy spells. The nutrients are distributed more evenly that way as rain dissolves the granules than by hammering concentrated chunks several feet apart.Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Gel contains water storing crystals that absorb and release water when plants need it. But making them shiny is a cosmetic matter that comes with a potential down side, namely the potential to clog the leaf stomata (their “pores”) and inhibit transpiration (the way a plant “breathes”) by coating them with glossy materials. Something we noticed with our science fair project was that certain substances don't absorb into the beads as well. You’re better off saving the money and cleaning your leaves with a soft, damp cloth or with a very dilute solution of vinegar or soap. This is the same stuff that's in orbeez/water beads that are marketed as kids toys, and also the same stuff that's in diapers.

While not necessarily effective in a pot because of the expansion issue already mentioned, they may provide an effective variation of that trick of sitting your plants in water while you're away on vacation. The diaper granules may be even more effective for this applied as a top dressing, though it won't breathe as well. Linda Chalker-Scott, another horticulture professor and author of “ The Informed Gardener” (University of Washington Press, 2008), also doesn’t recommend antitranspirants and says better ideas are to keep the soil damp until it freezes and maintain a layer of insulating mulch over the ground. As people mentioned, it would expand but even the directions I am seeing on the packages indicate a tea or tablespoon per pot.

Ideal for indoor and outdoor plants, the crystals reduce water stress in plants to help protect them from heat and drought. It has some good uses – such as under pavers, under stone paths or in vegetable gardens – but the most commonly used purpose is where it’s least useful. These crystals go a LONG way in ensuring that my plants have backup during dry spells and alleviate the necessity of prolonged watering.
