Solid Rain is a bizarre new invention in the world of water and plants. It’s a a highly absorbent polymer that comes in the form of crystals. The magic little pebbles absorb water like nothing ever invented before. Just 10 grams of this stuff can hold up to a liter of water.

And when tilled into the soil of a corn field, the crystals have been proven to reduce waterings from 300 per year to only 35. So if you’re into gardening but live in a drought prone area, Solid Rain may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
