      Well few member are successful rooting in sand. This sand no get dry ever but also is no wet. It has moisture but no too much and it breathe. The fine roots would just glide threw it no?

        Although I didn't think threw... There's nothing for roots to eat unless mix in with light fertilizer?

          I don't think it's a good idea Mike, but try it with a variety you lots of extra cuttings.

              You never know until you try......but if it is moist looking but no water in it I don't know how well it would work.
              Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.

                Is the moisture to actual feed stick or just to keep comfy and stop from drying out ? Maimai2 bag way is soak stick then into dry soil. But I guess actual water moisture is made to feed soil and stick...

                  I don't think maimai2's media is completely dry. Just no added water to the somewhat moist mix that she already uses.

                I don't know how I feel about this. It's a little creepy, and the music doesn't help. At least it comes with extras... little sparkly fairy lol.

                Looks like the sand is coated with a hydrophobic substance to make the water bead up like that, and make it stick together and "only to itself."

                  Is it water or some weird chemical that makes it hold together like that?

                    I am no sure what it is but is made for child. So I think would be made clean. Also say is gluten free so maybe has to do with food grade?

                    According to Wikipedia, Kinetic Sand is a three-dimensional building toy made of 98% sand and 2% polydimethylsiloxane (a type of silicone oil) which is supposedly nontoxic.

                    Not sure there is actually any moisture (water).

                    I imagine the cost of the sand could be prohibitive if it actually works.

                    There are do it yourself recipes that use water and cornstarch. Added bleach or tea tree oil as mold inhibitors.

                    Or you could just use REAL sand or dirt. Would be cheaper.

                    Reuseable, but it would not hold any water.
