"Crystal Soild Water beads are a revolutionary new and unique water conserving product for plants and cut flowers. The beads are being used in beautiful style by homeowners, interior designers and large companies alike. Water beads change water into colorful shining beads, that resemble crystal balls in a clear glass container. It is the best substitution for wedding party decoration, flower planting, arranging cut flowers and also can be used as a decoration for birthdays, baby/bridal showers, graduations, anniversaries, baptisms, weddings, etc.
Simply put the small packet of beads into water for 12-24 hours. The water beads will absorb water and expand, then you pour off and filter the excess water. Put the remaining beads into a clear glass or plastic vase or bowl and insert your plant, fresh flowers or artificial flowers. For added beauty many people add a submersible light to really make the beads sparkle. This amazing new product combines environmental protection and beauty. This product is non-polluting and will not fade. It is reusable as long as you add water to rehydrate the water beads (approximately every 7-9 weeks). Of course, this product is not edible and should be kept away from small children."
