Hydrogels to grow plants

Can you use disposable nappies to grow plants?

The answer is simple and we recommend you to try this nice experiment at home! Nappies can absorb a huge amount of water thanks to little polymer particles dispersed into the cotton. When they get in contact with water, they absorb it and swell forming a hydrogel.unknown

The water incorporated can be released and used to grow plants…..Want to see how? Check this out!

All you need is:

  • nappies
  • scissors
  • some seeds or a plant.

An experiment you can drink!

Want to do an experiment and to play around the kitchen? Look no further and try this easy experiment that plays with different densities in order to build a very pretty and tasty drink!
