Benefits of using Horta-Sorb:

Increases Survival – Holds WATER for use by roots – over 95% available to the roots.
Reduces Transplant Shock – Increases available water during, and after, the establishment phase.
Reduces Water Frequency – Absorbs WATER more effectively that any other substance on earth.
Extends Flowering – Because plants do not stress as much they remain productive longer.

Horta-Sorb® water management gel polymers are substances that absorb hundreds of times their weight in water. The water absorbed is nearly all available to the plants.

Their use results in managing watering in the root zone of the plant significantly reducing watering maintenance and providing for a more constant supply of water to the roots.

Horta-Sorb® polymers have been used in many areas in horticulture and agriculture for nearly two decades now.

Initially accepted as a bare root dip in forestry their use quickly spread to landscape, greenhouse and nursery, and numerous agricultural markets. Horta-Sorb® use ranges from bare root gels to hydromulching, transplant amendments to “ice packs” for cut flower and fresh fish shipments.
