What are AquaRocks?
AquaRocks are easy-to-use super-absorbent granules that absorb up to 400 times their weight in water. When mixed into the soil, AquaRocks act like a water sponge, absorbing and retaining water for use by your plants when they need it.
Where can I purchase AquaRocks in my area?
Our products are available exclusively at MegaGro.com and through select gardening catalogs. We offer free shipping on orders of $80 or more.
Will AquaRocks damage my plants?
Absolutely Not! AquaRocks are designed specifically for use with all indoor gardening, container gardening, flower gardening, houseplant care and vegetable gardening plants. AquaRocks use a Potassium-based polymer that is 100% safe for plants.
How often do I need to water my plants when using AquaRocks?
The frequency of watering varies, based on how much AquaRocks are used, how much soil is being watered, and how much water the plants require. As a general rule, using AquaRocks should cut your watering requirements in half. This is just an approximation. When you first start using AquaRocks, it is best to check the moisture in the soil at varying depths, over the course of 1-2 weeks, to determine when the soil starts to dry out for optimal plant care.
Are AquaRocks environmentally safe?
AquaRocks are an environmentally safe, biodegradable product made with only the highest quality materials available on the market. AquaRocks use potassium-based polymers, which are better for plant care, than other sodium-based products, which can harm plants and the environment. Over time, AquaRocks will slowly break down into its building blocks: ammonia, carbon dioxide and water, leaving no harmful residue. AquaRocks are great for use in indoor gardening, houseplant care, landscaping and other outdoor gardening.
Can I use AquaRocks indoor and outdoors?
Yes, AquaRocks are great for use in container gardening, flower gardening, vegetable gardening, landscaping and indoor gardening. If you are tired of seeing your flower pots dry out, try AquaRocks. Indoor and outdoors, AquaRocks will keep your plants moist!
Can I use AquaSpikes with AquaRocks?
YES! In fact, we encourage using both products together. Using AquaRocks with AquaSpikes will minimize the need for watering even more than either product alone. Simply keep an eye on your 2 liter bottle of water. When it is empty you simply refill it
