Too much water at one time and not enough water at another time results in water stress on your plants.

Plant stress can cause stunted growth and/or reduced yields.

Water Crystals, when properly applied, will reduce water stress because they hold water close to a plant's root system.

Because the growth medium is much less compacted than untreated soil (due to the expansion and contraction of Water Crystals as they go through repeated hydration/dehydration cycles), the soil's natural ability to hold water significantly improves.
