A blend of Ascophyllum nodosum seaweed, fulvic acid, amino acids and Hydretain® (soil humectant & wetting agent) work together to improve root development, heat stress tolerance, more uniform and deeper wetting of soils and growing media and access to soil/media water vapour which can be lost to evaporation. Ideal for horticulturalists to rescue and rejuvenate moisture stressed plants.

eco-hydrate is both a water-saving product and water-capturing product. Once diluted with water and added directly to the soil, it absorbs and stores water as microscopic droplets on roots and soil particles. Irrigation, dew, humidity and rain are all condensed and stored by eco-hydrate which gives plants an extra daily drink. The highly effective soil wetting agent in eco-hydrate treats hard to wet or hydrophobic soils and growing media; reducing run-off, improving water penetration and creating a uniform spread of moisture throughout the soil or media.
