This video shows you how you can use diapers to keep your plants watered. From 1 adult sized diaper, you can makre 12 cups or more hydrogel which when mixed with potting soil can create a super-absorbent soil that releases water to plants as they need it. With this method, you can save time and water and make your plants last twice as long between waterings. The gel is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Cool right?

Is this something that is new and innovative?
Diaper contains Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) which is a biodegradable, non-toxic and environment friendly material used in agriculture and horticulture. The use of this super absorbent material can be traced back to the early 1960s though it was originally referred to as “Super Slurper”.
The technique shown in the above video is excellent for container plants and small sized raised beds.
