The FloraFlex® Matrix System is a patent pending first of its kind Top Feeding Wicking System that provides the most even way to deliver water and nutrients to your potted plants. It can be used with the PotPro System, Rockwool cubes, or any other container you desire to use them with. The Matrix was not designed to be suspended above, but rather directly on top of, or touching the medium. You will need a Matrix unit, the same size Matrix Pad (optional), and the 2 1/4″ Matrix Circulator.
In the Matrix System water and nutrients travel into the Circulator, hit the slope of the Matrix and are pushed outward into eight maze sections that have individual holes dripping the water and nutrients onto the Wicking Pad. There are eight slices to the pie, each section is fed the same amount, going through the maze for even distribution. The Matrix pad is a capillary mat used for wicking.
The Matrix is reusable and can sit on top of a block or fit into your pot, just be sure all surfaces are touching.
Place the Matrix Pad on the surface of your plant, the Matrix Unit on top of it, press down, fit the Circulator into the center holes, and connect your 1/4” OD tubing to the Circulator.
Now let your plants enjoy the benefits of a Top Feeding Wicking System.
The system blocks light and keeps the top of your medium moist for a more even dry down.
