Maxwell Aquastore Water Storing Granules

Suberabsorbent Water Storing Granules

Maxwell Aquastore Granules - Granular Icon

High capacity superabsorbent polymer granules which increase plant water availability, reducing drought related stress and improving plant growth and health.

Aquastore granules are 0.8 - 2 mm when dry but expand when wetted as they absorb up to 300 times their own weight in water. The stored water is then slowly released back into the growing media, soil or compost as the granule breaks down. This process can take up to four years to complete and can help provide plants with increased water availability throughout this time.

Aquastore granules can be used in a variety of situations, wherever increased water availability will be beneficial to plant growth and health. The benefits of this include:

  • Reduced watering frequency
  • Increased plant survival
  • Increase in plant health
  • Increase in plant growth
