Product Description

Colour:Blue

These little crystals absorb up to 400 times their weight in water and expand to make beautiful clear or colour gel-like water crystals. They are Ideal for wedding centre pieces, floral displays, crafts, keeping house plants and cuttings fresh, watered etc. They look fantastic mixed together for a multi-colour look and ultra stylish when displayed in single colours!

Add water to the contents of a packet and leave for up to 24hrs, drain off any excess water and create your own beautiful display. Add water again when Aqua Crystals shrink, draining off the excess once they have expanded again.

Each 20g bag will fill a 2 litre container (approximately). The bags are specifically made to hold the water crystals and sealed at the factory with easy to read instructions, in English, printed on the bags.

For lasting results use young plants that are not too sensitive to different soil types or specific hydrocultures. Choose rooted plants (washing the roots well) and cut flowers.

- Room Freshener: Soak Aqua Crystals in scented oil overnight. Crystals may expand less but will absorb and retain scent longer.
- Decoration: They look good on their own for Wedding Centre Pieces, Parties, Foorball Colours, Offices, Candles, Centerpieces, Arts & Crafts, Even Massage Therapy.
- Potting Soil Mix: Mix directly with soil to retain moisture for plant roots.

Avoid direct sunlight - store at room temperature. Do not dispose of in drains. Not suitable for children. Do not ingest. Non-toxic. Biodegradeable.
PLEASE NOTE - Vases, plants and candles are NOT included in the sale and are for illustration purposes only.

I cannot comment on the plant/vase function of these water storing gel crystals but BOY OH BOY do they make a fun activity for my toddler and her little friends.

I put them in to soak the night before they're needed and then sit back as the toddlers play for literally an hour at a time scooping them into pots and bun trays.

They're so pretty and have a fab texture and as they're non-toxic so don't pose a health risk.

This was kind of an experiment.
I thought it would look neat to have a plant growing in these rather than soil.
Unfortunately the top layer dries out fast and the bottom layer gets swollen to bursting point so they really need stirring regularly, thus disturbing the plants roots.
No complaints at the price though so 4 rather than 3 stars.

I bought this product because a friend had them and I thought they looked really cool, so after looking everywhere for them I found them on here. The delivery was as expected, and they took less than what the packet said to grow. I was really happy with them for about two weeks, as I just put them in a vase to use as a decoration, but then after a while they went mouldy and smelt quite bad. So I had to throw them out. For what you pay for them i wouldn't expect miracles. But they were cool while they lasted.

I love these things. While they can be used as a vase display, what I found more interesting was how therapeutic they are, running your hand though a bowl of these, or just filling a food spar with them and rolling your feet in with them feels very soothing.
They are also a fun thing for kids (probably kids older then 3-4) just expect to be cleaning them up after they play with them.

i love these! they are going in my centrepieces at our wedding and they can be made to any size you want, leave them the full amount of time and they absorb all the water and are big and squishy filling a bowl or vase with ease or leave them less time to make them smaller

Absolutely amazing.....

Used for step Mums 60th birthday party along with submersible lights in fishbowls and they couldn't have looked any better. Also used for a baby shower a week later. Wonderful idea/invention for such a small price... Over the moon with the product and would 100% recommend...

Please note these are not baby blue as I thought, they are the same as the other blue ones but still just as wonderful.

These little water crystals are amazing. One little bag goes a long way. I've used them in a vase with artificial flowers and a glass bowl with tea lights. Very effective. Will definitely buy again.
