How does it work? Add Stockosorb to your potting soil or banded and mixed with granular fertilizer. Stockosorb hydrogel will absorb water and nutrients during rainfalls. Water and Nutrients will remain stored into the hydrogel to be released in the root zone during dryer times. Making water available to the root at any time.
