Could it be like the stuff in diapers? Some type of polymer, but I can’t remember what it is called at the moment. It comes in dry form, but absorbs water and ends up looking like gelatin.

That is the first time I seen that stuff in a vase. IT looks so good! Now I totally want to steal this idea. Let me ask about for the name of the stuff and if I found out and I will be back!

from the pic, it looks like it might be “water gel beads” – they sell them at Jo-Ann crafts and Michaels, in the floral section.

search for “wonder water gel” I think this is what you are looking for

Check on water crystals too. The ones for craft purposes hold their shape better, but there’s also some carried by nurseries and hardware used for placement in the soil for watering plants.

I don’t necessarily endorse this website, but it does explain a bit better and probably gives you enough info to know what to ask for in stores.

Save on Crafts is calling them: Crystal Clear Water Pearls.
