If your soil is left dry for long periods of time it can become "hydrophobic." So no matter how much water you pour onto it, it just won't sink down deeply to the roots.
These days, everyone knows about the benefits of adding a Wettasoil product to the soil, which comes in a dry form that needs to be hydrated and plumped up for a hour before being hand mixed through.
But what happens when you can't disturb the soil around the established plants who desperately need more moisture to be held around their roots?
This is my new favourite product which I have been using for just over 12 months, so I can confidently say that this one works!
Amgrow Wettasoil Professional liquid concentrate (RRP $15.95)
Wettasoil liquid is so easy to use:
Only 15ml to 9 Litres of water in a watering can for every 4 square meters.
It comes with an easy measuring lid, so there is no need to guess.
It can be used oat every watering to make watering quicker and more effective, especially for pot plants with excessively compact, dry soil
Amgrow Wettasoil is completely safe to use around plant roots.
Depending on your climate and soil type, this product should last for up to 12 months in the soil before a reapplication. A reapplication every 6 months actually improves its overall performance.
This is an amazing product to help your plants become more drought tolerant. Which doesn't mean that your plants can go totally without water, but when you do water, the moisture is retained in the soil more effectively and for longer, benefiting the plants.
It doesn't just add more moisture to the soil, but adds plant extracts, amino acids and growth stimulants that improve the plants ability to take up moisture and recover from short periods of dryness.
It stops new dry spots from happening and saves money on watering. With water bills always on the rise, a great product like this is essential.
