Thread: Silica Gel Crystal Beads

  1. #1

    Default Silica Gel Crystal Beads

    Hi, I am asking if anyone knows where I can find big and round Silica Gel Crystal Beads like those in below photo attached?



    I am planning to put in a dry flower vase with a flower I am drying myself. Prefer it to be blue or pink, but I can try find a few marble substitle for color if there is only either blue or pink or colorless. Considering some of us work with Silica for maintaining equipment dryness, maybe someone might have or might know where to find the item. Thanks in advance for all kind reply.

    I think those blue balls are fertilizer balls for live plant.

    Thanks for the reply, but I don't think they are as I borrow the image from.

    The instruction with the image write Silica Gel.

    Seen them on sale in daiso, cold storage, large ntuc, flower and garden shops, etc.

    Really, if you just get out of the house more you'll find them everywhere. ;-)

    Thanks for the reply, but I tried scanning around daiso, $2 shops, florist and NTUC. I can only find this similiar looking thingy call magic soil. The dehumifier are all like thirsty hipo look alike or the black charcoal. Photography shops selling silica are small crystals in a white container. I am looking for silica beads which are petty big like toy marble size. I remember a older CS post having the same reply as yours, but TS is just looking for simple looking dehumifier. I tried calling some bigger florist like far east flora, but they said they don't carry it. Maybe I might need to rethink the vase design.
