Water Gel

I found the coolest thing since sliced bread...
It's nothing new but I am totally facinated by it!
It's a gel that you use to provide plants or flowers with water and nutritions...
I bought the clear gel (but there are many other colors) from IKEA and honestly, I thought one of the packs will not be enough.
So back home i filled it in the vase that I earlyier also bought from there to keep my bamboo fit!
It looked kinda sad since only the lower third was filled with the gel...
The instructions didn't really say anything about the usage of it... so I figured I'll just add a little bit of water... That little bit was about half of the vase! Shit!!! Too much I thought! WRONG!
All the water i filled in turned into the same gel substance! Since I am rather curious I filled the rest of the vase with water to see if all of it would turn into that gel. It took about 30 minutes... and it did!!! :)
Looks awsome! Feels funny! Tastes awsome! Naaah!! Didn't try it!! Neither should you!


Here is a picture of the final result:

Can you see the little air bubbles caught in the gel?! Looks pretty cool!!
BTW ... You can find that stuff in IKEA where all the deco stuff is...

UPDATE: Here are instructions on how to use the water gel!
