Maxwell Aquastore Root Dip

Superabsorbent Root Hydrating Gel

Maxwell Aquastore Root Dip - Soluble Icon

A high capacity superabsorbent polymer powder which creates a thick gel when dissolved in water. The gel can be used to coat bare root transplants, whips, trees and shrubs to prevent drying out prior to planting, increase water availability and to improve transplanting success rates.

Aquastore Root Dip powder absorbs up to 300 times its own weight in water. When roots are coated in this pre-hydrated gel the plants become more resistant to desiccation prior to being planted. The stored water also assists plants establishment and survival post planting through the promotion of new root hairs and the increased moisture availability.

To further assist transplant survival rates and overall health Aquastore Root Dip can be used in conjunction with Mycological Complete, a soluble mycorrhizal inoculant which improves plant water and nutrient uptake.
