Moisture X-Tend (MX) will provide uniform water retention throughout the soil of indoor and outdoor potted plants up to 4x longer than untreated water. After spending a considerable sum on a nice plant many homeowners kill them by being to attentive. Over-watering kills more house plants than any other practice, usually because surface soil is drier that soil lower in the pot. So how can you be more assured that your new plant will survive and grow to maturity? Let’s remove the worrisome problem of when to water a plant and how much to water it. Moisture X-Tend will do just that because uniform moisture is maintained, helping prevent over-watering.
Why should I use Moisture X-Tend on my potted plants?
MX helps water penetrate the surface of the potted soil easier and remain longer with the soil root zone. This revolutionary soil moisture management product helps prevent plant-available water from evaporating too quickly or draining past the root zone of the plant. Water will remain available to the plant up to 4x longer.
When can I expect to reduce my watering frequency?
When using MX at each watering, you can expect watering cycles to be cut in half within a month for most plants. However, all plants and pots will vary and will need to be monitored. (The diagnostic tool for potted plants is a moisture meter, which is available at most garden centers.)
Can MX be mixed with other plant food or fertilizers?
Adding MX to liquid fertilizer is recommended because the water/fertilizer blend will be evenly distributed throughout the entire root mass in the pot. More fertilizer will be captured and retained within the nursery mix to be used later by roots, making the fertilizer more effective.
Do I need to amend or mix the soil?
Soil amending is not necessary. The unique ingredients in MX will carry the product to the root level of the plant and will evenly saturate the soil.
How does MX enhance the health of my plant?
Keeping the entire soil column in a pot moist is an advantage that allows the roots to grow into all areas of the pot evenly. Good root mass generation is essential to having a plant grow to maturity and look its best at all times. MX also helps prevent white, salty build-up on soil and leaves, two conditions that compromise the health of the plant.
