grow bags b&q

i put some soil into a container i then put some sweet peas into the soil,through the night it rained heavy,when i look at the container in the morning,there was jelly bits on the top of the soil,is there something added to the grow bag that would cause this jelly blobs thank you



sounds like the growbag has water retaining crystals, these help keep the soil from drying out

I recently bought some and didnt realise what it was after I had put it in hehe
