    The word ‘information’ is being used in rather a liberal sense here.

    How mysterious. This is the first time I’ve heard of a Chinese manufacturer needing the collective help of the entire Korean peninsula to dream up some cheapo knock-off product!

    Dear China,

    Outlook not so good. Please stop “helping” us.


    P.S. Ask again later.

    Uwe Boll was designed by the entire people of North and South Korea joined together and he still isn’t able to make a decent film? I guess they didn’t add the correct amount of water.

    all i can say is that North Korea has a lot of bolls!

    It’s really not unusual for one to show one’s satiety face in that moment of growing up.

    Darn it. I’ve had these same things sitting around for months and I kept forgetting to upload the photos to the site. Oh well. They are (hilariously-packaged) plant-food balls. Put them in the soil to prolong the plant’s life.

    I don’t know if anybody has mentioned this yet, but have we even established what a “boll” is?

    These are jelly balls, also called crystal soil. They’re used for growing plants in indoors without use of soil. They also can be mixed in with potting soil to help retain moisture. I use them as they are indoors, and mix them in potted plants outdoors. I live in Texas, and plants can dry out really fast. The roots of plants will grow into the balls and draw moisture from them when needed.

    They are made from the same type of material that is used in diapers and feminine hygiene pads. It was originally developed for astronauts for short-term trips into space.

    You can buy them in a few different sizes of round, and now cubes (a bit more expensive), in different colours, and in “ice” form that looks kinda like crushed ice. The “ice” kind you can get at places like Home Depot and Lowes in the gardening department or on eBay. The round balls like the ones pictured you can get on eBay by typing in “crystal soil” in the search box. I like the single colours. They make great gifts. The ones pictured swell up to about 12mm – about the size of a kid’s marble or the type used in decorating using artificial plants. I’ve had people think some of my real plants might be fake because of the jelly balls.

    Sorry so long. I’m just enthusiastic and type fast. I have hundreds of packets of these things and repackage them as gifts.

    So “Anna Rexia,” speaking as an expert, would you condone the usage of the Seven Color Crystal Boll designed by Korea, hmmm??

    Add water, and in about four hours it will grow up? Wish that worked on kids.

    Gasp… I just saw the thing today in my neighborhood pet shop! And I live damm far from China and Korea! I must admit, though, that some packages are signed ‘ball’ instead of ‘boll’.

    ‘ When the flower want to oxygen and nutrition, I will help you too much.’
    …Damn, there goes my garden.
