I have no idea what the things are but they do seem to have the appearance and properties of some sort of
. That is what many of the water retention soil additives that are on the market
are made of, like aqua-gel or water-sorb.
It would also help to explain how they are seemingly 'replenished' over night, as the material would absorb dew. Who knows, maybe agricultural
polyacrylamides are somehow taken up in to the atmosphere and when they are regurgitated, they tend to form these sphericles.
Who knows how they would get that color, though. Possibly through oxidation, I am thinking, causing a color change.
P.S. You all should really check out these polyacrylamides. They are used in biology for DNA testing and other applications. All sorts of proteins and
enzymes can inhabit polyacrylamides, so even if the answer to what these spheres are is really mundane, I am thinking we got something pretty weird
going on here in terms of the color changes and the 'beyond-specifications' level of water retention we are seeing. I think these things are a combo
of ployacylamide and living stuff. very strange.
