Medium Sized (1-2mm) Water Absorbing Polymer Crystals.
These crystals are commonly used in Arts & Crafts, soil moisture management, and for providing safe hydration to feeder insects such as crickets and dubia roaches.
Water Absorbing Polymer Crystals absorbs over 400 times their weight in water. To use these water crystals for watering your feeder insects:
· Use 1 oz of Water Polymer Crystals by weight for each gallon of water. For smaller quantities use 1 teaspoon per 8oz of water.
· Allow to saturate for at least 1 hour.
· Strain off excess water before use.

The water crystals are easy to use. 1 tsp of crystals and 8 ounces of water. Shake and wait 1/2 hour to an hour. Provide a great water source.

This was my first time using water crystals. I was AMAZED at how little it took to make a lot! That is, only a little bit of the crystals were needed at a time--they expand so much once water is added. And I didn't have to change them out every day like with paper towels, because they didn't get gross or dirty in my case (keep in mind that I did not have a lot of roaches, just 50). I still have a lot left over. Never going back to paper towels again, or buying the expensive Flukers Cricket Waterer from the pet store (and Flukers adds yellow dye to theirs, yuck!)
