LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

AN ALTERNATIVE TO COMPOST : CRYSTAL MUD, THE HYDROPONICS SOLUTION

We have been posting a lot about growing our own food and we know some of you might be thinking we are overdosing on it. Well, we do regard all these as useful knowledge and knowing where your food comes from is a more than natural common sense we should all have. Some people like to have a sterile environment indoors and do not like to have compost or too many pot plants lying around especially in climate countries. We are ok with that but Mr Washy isn't. We remembered something called Crystal Mud or Soil and decided to read more about it. It is pretty huge in Asia and people have been using it for years. It cannot be bad if no one has complained about it after such a long time.

Crystal Soil is a water absorbent polymer that is translucent, odourless, bio-degradable, 100% non-toxic, re-usable and environmentally friendly. It comes in an assortment of colours. When soaked in water it inflates to more than 100 times its original size. It is a form of hydroponics.

You can grow your plants in it, sprout seeds or even combine it with compost so that you create a self-watering pot plant. Not too bad if you ask us. It is completely fool proof and not-so-green-thumb friendly considering you will never over-water ever again. Keep the mossies from reproducing too.
