Water Gel Crystals, 4 oz.
Crystal Water Gel – 4 ounce Package. Water gel polymer is an odorless water-absorbing polymer (polyacrylamide). Crystal water gel is great as a water source for crickets, roaches and other feeders. Make sure you keep the crystals hydrated at all time. Great for use in with the new incubation trays, just hydrate and put on the bottom of the container. Lots of other great animal and plant applications. 1 ounce (6 teaspoons) of dry crystals will make a full gallon of WET Sparkling Gel Crystals. Mix 6 teaspoons (1 ounce) of dry Polymer Crystals to a gallon of water. 1 teaspoon of dry crystals will absorb approximately 1 cup of water in 30 minutes. Let it stand for about four hours (overnight is great). The crystals will swell up and increase their weight by approximately 400 times. Next, use a sieve to strain off any surplus water and allow the crystals to drain for 2 hours. Now you have sparkling Gel Crystals. Store in a dark area until ready to use. $4.00
