$10 for Seven Packs of Floral-Hydration Beads ($20 Value)
Seven packages, each containing approximately 50 beads, arrive by mail within 4–6 weeks. This deal does not include taxes and shipping fees totalling $2.50.
Functioning as both a substitute for soil and a decorative accent, Crystal Drops nourish houseplants and brighten homes with nontoxic, biodegradable beads in 10 different translucent hues. Initially nothing more than a polymer gel powder, the material expands to more than 50 times its original size when added to a quart of water, separating into spherules that retain moisture for years within a sparkling membrane. Once prepared, the orbs can either nourish houseplants such as bamboo and philodendrons right in their pots—automatically watering them for up to seven years—or add splashes of color to glass vases and bronze spittoons for several months before starting to fade. Crystal Drops are nonflammable, which allows owners to use them to decorate candles or play fetch with baby dragons, and ecologically neutral, eventually breaking down to water, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen as they near the end of their fertile shelf life.
