Creative Marbles Water Beads

Creative Marbles are a type of water absorbent polymer that absorbs, stores and then releases water and nutrients needed for growing plants. It is non-toxic, completely biodegradable, and environmentally safe. They are great for fresh cut flowers, soil substitute for plants, candle accents, or alone as an intriguing focal point. Water soluble, plant-safe fragrances can be added for lasting air freshness.

How They Work

By adding water to each 10 gram packet of Creative Marbles water beads, the beads absorb the water and grow to be many times the original size. Add the contents of each 10 gram packet to at least one liter of water. Leave them to sit for 4 to 6 hours. After this time, you can drain off the remaining water and use Creative Marbles as desired. As Creative Marbles dehydrate just add water.
