this is so interesting! Using diapers insides as an additive to soil to hold water. I will try and get pics in order.
Non toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly
for fresh flowers you may agitate the mix and it will look like crushed ice!
make holes beside plant and add globs of the mixture
for fresh flowers add 1 T sugar, 1 T white vinegar and 1 tsp chlorine bleach
put in some soil ad the mixture and then you may even add more water.
mix thoroughly
use equal amounts of potting soil and additive
An adult diaper will make 12 cups of additive
use potting soil
dump out in large bowl
add up to 4 cups of water
take diaper

    the purpose of the diaper is to control the moisture , i'd just get a packet of soil moist: it's actually the ingredient in the diaper that makes it hold water. the fun stuff you learn when the rep from a diaper co. come to in-service a new product.
