Frequently asked questions

How much water beads for a vase?

3 grams of beads will yield about 1.5 to 2 cups of water gel balls.

10 grams of beads will yield about 6 cups of water gel balls.

4 oz. of beads yields about 48 cups (about 3 gallon) of water gel balls.

8 oz. of beads yields about 96 cups (about 6 gallon) of water gel balls.

The cup sizes are the standard 8 ounce cups.

For a rule of thumb, test with cups of water in vase. Beads will take up more space than the water due to beads having air pockets between them.

How to hydrate water beads?

Follow the simple to use directions on back of packages and/or the listed instructions below.
1. Apply beads in extra large bowl with water.
2. Allow 8 - 10 hours for the beads to fully expand.
3. Remove the expanded beads from the excess water to the desired container.

Rehydration of water beads is necessary due to dehydration.


Please note the usual hydration time yields to about 8 hours. However the time may shorten by 3 - 5 hours by hydrating with warm distilled water (not hot tap water). Distilled water will yield larger size beads than if using tap water.

How to add color to Instant Snow?

Just add a few drops of food coloring to the water before mixing with the Instant Snow powder. The result will yield a colorful and confetti-like snow!

Why Moist SAP uses potassium polyacrylate in soil for all plants?

Moist SAP only uses commercial grade quality potassium polyacrylate for all plants use.

Other companies sell sodium or low quality potassium polyacrylate for plant use to make big profits despite the negative effects it has on plants. Below is a comparison between potassium polyacrylate and sodium polyacrylate.
