Water Beads are a water absorbent polymer, which are able to absorb and hold water for a long time.
They act as a reservoir to store water, ideal for fresh flower arrangements as they supply water whilst offering a decorative effect also.
Very simple to use - add one 15g packet to 2 litres of fresh water (or one 3g packet to 500mls). Allow to soak for 8-10 hours / overnight. Drain off any excess water the next day.
Food colouring may be added to the water to colour the Clear Water Beads. Don't be shy - use a good amount to make water darker than you require as inflated water beads will still be translucent.
Water Beads once they have fully absorbed the water will be approximately a small marble size (some variations can occur & this is the nature of the product).
DID YOU KNOW .... Water Beads can also be used as 'invisible oasis' for flowers such as Gerbera Daisies (also called Transvaal Daisies here in SA). Take a look in the Gallery below
AND you can make 'things' appear to be suspended in water - place your goodies as you wish among the Water Beads & then top up slowly with clean water. The Clear Water Beads then just 'disappear' once you add water to the vase (NB: items must be water proof or you don't mind them getting wet)
