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 pots ranging from 7.5″-18″ diameters. You will need a Matrix unit, the same size Matrix Pad (optional), and the correlating 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, and 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 or fit into your pot, just be sure all surfaces are touching.
The system blocks light and keeps the top of your medium moist for a more even dry down. There are holes on the side to allow bamboo sticks for stabilization.
Choose your Matrix by your pot’s diameter:
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.
