To hydrate enough beads for one vase, place 5 grams (one teaspoon) of dry beads in a 1 quart container, a canning jar is perfect.  Fill jar with water and leave for 6-8 hours for full hydration.

Craftsprite water bead vase filler is available in two quantities: 
a 100 gram package of one color, 
or a sample pack of 5 grams of each color. 

The 100 gram package is useful when large quantities are needed, such as for wedding table arrangements. 
1 package makes approximately 5 gallons of hydrated beads.

To use, simply fill vase with water beads, additional water and add flowers.
