Seramis® Water Retention Granules

Posted in Houseplant Advice on March 06, 2019

Baked Clay Granules 

Kiwicare Gro-Sure Houseplant Potting Mix contains Seramis® clay water retention granules. The 100% natural baked clay granules are highly porous which means:

  • High water retention – less watering
  • Nutrient retention – better plant growth
  • Better potting mix aeration – better root structure

This is achieved because the granules have:

  • A large volume of pores: ~82 %
  • Water retention is more than 100 % of the granules’ own weight
  • Fast water soaking and distribution all around the pot
  • Releases water as the plant needs
  • Capillary lift of approximately 26 cm
  • Low specific weight of approximately 390 g/L
