Hydretain is a totally unique concept in root zone moisture management that effectively reduces the overall watering requirements of plants, shrubs, trees, turf, and agriculture by as much as 50% or more. Hydretain is not another wetting agent, surfactant, or super absorbent polymer crystal. It is a unique compound with the ability to attract, hold, and then transfer water molecules (which would otherwise be lost to evaporation) into plant roots.
One end of the Hydretain molecule anchors itself to soil particles and root hairs, coating their surface. The other end is available to grab free water molecules from humid air circulating in the soil. Once Hydretain has grabbed a water molecule, it releases it into the plant's root throughout osmosis, preventing it from being lost to evaporation or leaching. Because the Hydretain molecule is too large to fit through the cell wall of the root, it is left behind where it is free to grab another water molecule. This process is repeated over and over again, continually supplying the plants with water.
