Hydretain is a moisture manager  that was designed to reduce watering needs, either for your interior plants or for your lawn and garden, including your trees. That means, you don’t need to water that often, which is crucial when there are water restrictions, or when you leave home for several days and your plants are unattended.

During cold months, Hydretain helps your interior plants to survive the dry environment caused by your heater, by maintaining the roots humected for longer periods of time. During warmer months, the included hose-end sprayer will allow a wider application on your lawn. A must have among your gardening supplies!

Hydretain ES Plus is a unique blend of humectant* and hygroscopic* compounds, designed to reduce the watering requirements of your plants, flowers, trees and lawn. It actually contains humectants from the cosmetic industry (alpha-hydroxypropionic acids).

*Hygroscopic: That absorbs or attracts moistures from the air.
*Humectant: A substance that absorbs or helps another substance retain moisture.

Hydretain ES Plus is not a wetting agent. It does contain 10% of a superior non-ionic surfactant (from a renewable resource) for better penetration.

One quarter gallon treats up to 3,500 square feet of lawn in outdoor use. For indoor use in your interior plants, it requires only 2 ounces of Hydretain ES Plus per gallon of water!

Hydretain ES Plus has been used by golf superintendents to take care of their turf and all the surrounding gardens while saving hundreds of thousands of gallons of water and dollars!. It’s also very used by landscapers and gardeners all over the United States, also saving water and money to their customers.

Meaning… Hydretain ES Plus is used by pros and now you can use it too, so you can also save thousands of dollars in your lawn, garden and potted plants!

Dilution: Hydretain ES Plus is a concentrated formula. Dilute with water before applying.

Shake Well Before Using

Turf: General application rate – Apply 9 oz. of Hydretain ES Plus per 1,000 sq. ft. (3 gallons per acre) by spray or drench once every 3 months or maintain monthly at 1/3 rate after initial full rate application. For best results apply to damp or wet soil.

Water in with at least 1/10 inch of water within the first couple of hours to insure Hydretain ES Plus is washed off foliage and into the soil. Within 24 hours, follow with enough additional water to carry Hydretain ES Plus down to and throughout the root zone (the amount of additional water required to carry Hydretain ES Plus throughout the root zone is dependant on the depth of the root zone of the treated area.)

Additional Hydretain ES Plus may be required to correct difficult and extreme dry spot areas. Hydretain may be applied at up to 5 times the general application rate as a single treatment or in multiple applications.

Wetting Agents & Penetrants: Hydretain ES Plus contains an excellent soil surfactant designed specifically to allow Hydretain to penetrate through thatch layers and hydrophobic soils, down to and throughout the root zone where Hydretain is designed to function.

Overseeding, Sodding, Sprigging: Apply Hydretain ES Plus at general application rate (9 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft.) by spray or drench just prior to or shortly after seeding, sodding or sprigging. Water in with only enough water to rinse Hydretain ES Plus off foliage and into the soil at seed level or the root area of new sod or sprig. An application of Hydretain ES Plus made prior to overseeding, sodding or sprigging and watered into the root zone will manage soil moisture for existing turf during new turf establishment.

Trees, Shrubs & Individual Plants: Dilute Hydretain ES Plus II at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water and apply by drench thoroughly saturating the root zone. For maximum effectiveness on trees apply 1 to 2 ounces of concentrate for each 1/4 inch of trunk diameter. Dilution rate is variable from 50:1 to 300:1.

Potted or Containerized Plants: Dilute Hydretain ES Plus at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water and apply by drench, thoroughly saturating the planting media. Media should be dry enough to hold as much diluted Hydretain ES Plus as possible.

Hydretain ES Plus may be applied through existing injectors at rates between 50:1 and 100:1. Higher dilution rates may require multiple applications to achieve desired results.

Large Planters & Gardens: Dilute Hydretain ES Plus at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water or through injectors at a rate of 50:1 to 100:1 and apply at a rate of 2 ounces of concentrate per 60 sq. ft of area. One gallon treats up to 4,000 square feet.

For Best Results: Water thoroughly when re-watering Hydretain ES Plus treated plants. Proper fertilization will enhance Hydretain ES Plus’ effectiveness. Hydretain ES Plus is biodegradable. For maximum effectiveness reapply every three months or when required watering becomes more frequent. Reapply if a reduction in watering is not apparent
within the first two weeks.

Caution: If Hydretain ES Plus is applied to open flowers blooms, rinse with plain water to reduce the possibility of Hydretain ES Plus pulling moisture from sensitive flower petals.
