Note: Soil Moist must be incorporated into the soil at the root level of the plant/green good. Do not top dress or place on the surface. All of our products should be kept out of drains. Dispose of in trash container. If material should enter a drain, add table salt and flush with hot water. Although our products are non-toxic and environmentally safe, they are not food products and should not be taken internally. Keep out of reach of children, or children should be supervised by an adult when handling these products.

APPLICATION SCHEDULE

For Transplanting Plugs and Other Plants: Dig your hole for the plugs or plants. Then sprinkle a small amount into the hole and insert the plug or plant into the hole. Refill with soil as needed. Water liberally to ensure the Soil Moist polymers absorb and store the water.

Optional: Pre-mix the Soil Moist Granules with water in a bucket to use as a root dip optionally. To do this, pour the desired amount of dry Soil Moist Granules into a bucket or container, add water, and mix. Dip the roots of your grass plugs or plant into the mixture prior to planting.

For Turf/Sodding: Use Soil Moist Granules at a rate of six lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. or 300 lbs. per acre if worked into the soil at a five to six inches. Use four to five pounds per 1000 sq. ft. (175–225 lbs. per acre) if worked into the soil at three to four inches. We recommend five pounds per 1,000 sq. ft. at depth of four inches for sandy soils. Broadcast the polymer with a spreader or drop seeder for even disbursement. Work into the soil, spread seed or lay sod, roll and soak thoroughly. If applying grass seed, you may want to use SOIL MOIST SEED COAT.

For Other Established Plants: Make holes in the soil with a pencil or similar object and be careful not to damage the roots of the plant if already planted. Add the required amount of Soil Moist following the application instructions on the back of the package. Then water liberally so the granules can absorb the water.

INSTRUCTIONS

For Transplanting Plugs and Other Plants:

  1. Dig the hole for your plugs or plants.
  2. Sprinkle a small amount of Soil Moist Granules into the hole (1/2 tsp.).
  3. Insert the plug or plant into the hole.
  4. Refill the hole with soil as necessary.
  5. Water generously to allow Soil Moist polymers to absorb and store the water.

Optional: Pre-mix the Soil Moist Granules with water in a bucket to use as a root dip optionally. To do this, pour the desired amount of dry Soil Moist Granules into a bucket or container, add water, and mix. Dip the roots of your grass plugs or plant into the mixture prior to planting.

For Turf/Sodding:

  1. Calculate application rate:
    1. Use 6 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. or 300 lbs. per acre at a depth of 5–6 inches.
    2. Alternatively, for a depth of 3–4 inches, apply 4–5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. (175–225 lbs. per acre).
    3. For sandy soils at a depth of 4 inches, we recommend 5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.
  2. Achieve even distribution: Broadcast the polymer with a spreader or drop seeder.
  3. Work it into the soil.
  4. Proceed with your desired landscaping activity, whether spreading seed or laying sod.
  5. Roll and ensure thorough soaking to activate the Soil Moist Granules.

For Broad Area Treatment

  1. Apply 1 lb. of Soil Moist per 100 square feet of ground area.
  2. Spread the polymer and work into the soil at a depth of three to four inches.

For Other Established Plants:

  1. Create holes in the soil using a pencil or a similar tool, taking care not to harm existing plant roots
  2. Follow the application guidelines on the package to determine the appropriate quantity of Soil Moist to add or refer to the table below for container gardens.
  3. Liberally water the area, allowing the granules to absorb the moisture.

Add onto your order of grass plugs and these will ship in the box with them so you have it all when you’re ready to get planting.

Q: What is Soil Moist?

A: Soil Moist, a water-saving polymer, expands up to 200 times its original size, helping plants thrive. These granules come in a small bag for easy soil integration. Suitable for indoor and outdoor plants, including trees, shrubs, containers, and more, it reduces watering frequency by 50%, minimizes transplant shock, and prevents soil compaction. Its effects last 3–5 years, making it an eco-friendly plant insurance.

Q: Will Soil Moist damage my plants?

A: No. Soil Moist is plant-safe and designed for various gardening and growing applications, including indoor and container gardening, houseplants, and vegetables. It’s a non-toxic polymer suitable for horticultural use. However, excessive soil moisture due to flooding or over-irrigation can harm plants and contaminate groundwater. Sustained waterlogged soil robs plant roots of vital oxygen, leading to root rot and unhealthy plants. To prevent this, follow recommended application rates and avoid overwatering or flooding that can harm your plants.

Q: Can Soil Moist be used with all types of soil?

A: Soil Moist can be used for a wide range of plants, including indoor and outdoor plants, trees, shrubs, containers, baskets, flower beds, vegetables, grass plugs, and lawns.

Q: How often do I need to water my plants when using Soil Moist?

A: When using SoilMoist, the watering frequency depends on factors like the Soil Moist amount, soil volume, and plant water needs. Typically, it reduces watering needs by around 50%. To fine-tune, monitor soil moisture for 1–2 weeks initially. You can use the finger test: insert your finger into the soil; if it comes out clean, it’s time to water. Remember, different plants have different water requirements, so choose the right potting mix for each plant type if you want to water uniformly.

Q: Can I use Lawnifi Fertilizer with Soil Moist?

A: Yes, Lawnifi Fertilizer is compatible with Soil Moist as they both serve two different purposes. Lawnifi Fertilizer is a liquid fertilizer designed to promote root development with readily available phosphorus, potassium, and carbon. Soil Moist, on the other hand, serves as a water management aid, reducing watering frequency by 50% and minimizing transplant shock and soil compaction.

Q: Is Soil Moist environmentally safe?

A: Yes, Soil Moist is eco-friendly and safe. It’s a non-toxic synthetic polymer used for horticultural purposes, providing plant insurance by storing and releasing water efficiently. Please refrain from draining Soil Moist products and dispose of them in a trash container. If a spill occurs, use table salt and hot water for cleanup. Remember, while non-toxic and environmentally safe, these products are not for consumption.

Q: Can I use Soil Moist indoors and outdoors?

A: Yes, Soil Moist is perfect for both indoor and outdoor plantings, including trees, shrubs, containers, baskets, flower beds, vegetables, and turf. When watering indoor plants, use soil designed for potted plants, as it’s easier for your plant to absorb water. For outdoor plants, enhance soil fertility and moisture retention by incorporating a few inches of organic matter before planting.

Q: How can I judge if it’s time to water my plants?

A: Here are some ways to gauge when to water your plants with Soil Moist:

  • Finger test: Insert your finger into the soil; if it’s still moist, hold off on watering and recheck in a day or two.
  • Soil probe: A soil probe helps accurately assess soil moisture for optimal watering.
  • Soil sampling: After 24 hours, use a soil sampling tube or dig a hole to check for moisture.
  • Plant weight: Lift a potted plant—light means it’s dry, while heavy indicates moist soil.
  • Wilted plant: Wilted plants can signal a need for water, but if the soil is still moist, it might indicate root issues like root rot from excess moisture.
  • Plant variability: Different plants have varying water requirements, e.g., cacti need less water than tropical plants. To water uniformly, ensure the right potting mix for each plant type.
  • Soil soist’s impact: When using Soil Moist, watering frequency depends on factors like its amount, soil volume, and plant needs. Generally, it should halve your watering needs.

This stuff is magic. It must be the same composition of the absorbing material in diapers. I used a very small amount for each Bermuda plug and each deposit swelled up by a factor of maybe 1000.! No exaggeration. Haven't lost a plug yet.

Great Addition to my Plug Tray Order

I used Soil Moist when I planted Grass Plugs. The soil moist really helped with establishing the plugs. My first order of plugs I didn't use the soil moist this most recent one I added this to my order and it really helped.

Great Addition to my Plug Tray Order

My plugs took off after planting. The first time I planted plugs I didn't use Soil Moist. This second time I did, and it really helped spur on more growth.
