Ecologel Solutions LLC Enhance germination rates and seedling survival! Use Hydretain as part of your hydroseeding routine to provide more plant usable water in between scheduled waterings or rainfall. Applied with your seed, Hydretain attracts and collects individual water molecules, converting unavailable moisture vapor into plant usable water droplets. This process protects seeds from drying out and reduces drought stress for improved establishment.
