    Jelly crystals

    posted by vmendelis on 06/20/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    They look really nice in a clear glass vase. Reusable , you can dry them out then store for later use. You get three packets (the DX picture shows the amount you will get if you use just one packet)
    Cons:
    They can shrink after a while so you need to keep them moist. If you fill your vase up with too much water you can no longer se...

    Very cool crystal magic soil. That doesn't require dirty soil

    posted by ecfbw on 02/22/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very cheap price that looks really cool. I can't find these anywhere else. For 3 packs, that only mean 1 pack cost 50 cents. I have only used 1 pack so far and it could fill 2 regular size vase
    Cons:
    I pack a real plant with the crystal magic soil and green algae started growing around the beads so it doesn't look so pretty a...

    Love this product

    posted by fireworks2nite on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    These decorative balls are great for putting in a vase with your flowers. They increase in size according to the amount of water they are given. I had some in a vase for 3 weeks. Then I thought they were feeling a little slimey (probably from the flowers)...
    Cons:
    No cons. except maybe you won't need to buy any more for a long time

    Really good for plants

    posted by chrisstina on 11/12/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    These are very simple to use. Just them them in a jar of water and the beads will absorb them and grow. You can then use these beads instead of soil for your plants. They are very pretty and good for decoration as well.
    Cons:
    They degrade after a while. I've had them for less than a year and their colours are now all muddy and gross looking although t...

    A Plant's Home Sweet Home

    posted by Feltrex on 06/15/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The dehydrated balls (beads), once placed in a vase / jar of water, swell to approximately 17mm to 20mm in diameter. Once the water is drained from the environment, only the moist balls remain. It is possible, but tricky to encourage seeds to grow in this k...
    Cons:
    The pack yields enough to fill a small jar / vase, approximately the size of a tall glass - buy at least 2 packs if you're plan...

    they taste funny

    posted by thenextarcher1 on 05/11/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    They grow quickly, are very cheap, and look very sweet. Simply put it water and 4-5 hours later they are fully grown. They will shrink if you don't keep them watered
    Cons:
    they may mold if you keep them wet. They degrade rather quickly and become very weak and break. They don't make very good sling...
