4x8' Capillary Mat System
Capillary Mat System, 4’x8’
Here's a great, automated systems for growing seedlings, starts, and clones. Just hook it up to a gravity reservoir or a pressurized water line (with a pressure reducer) and make sure that those small, vulnerable plants don't dry out or drown.
This set-up includes:
IG15560 - Surface Blumat
IG16911 - Capillary Mat thick, 125cm (47.2) x 1'
IG16354 - Perforated Black Foil, 1.2 meters wide (47.3") anti-algae
IG15634 - SuperFlex 8mm by the foot Silicone Rubber Tubing
IG16073 - BluSoak DripTape - Mega by the foot
IG15595 - Blumat Elbows - bulk
IG15939 - 3mm Quick-Connect on-off Adapter Valves
This system needs to have a flat surface but it can be almost anything: a cement or tile floor, a plastic-covered sheet of plywood, metal or glass.
The water wicks up from the bottom so it doesn't squeeze the oxygen out of your planting mix or disturb delicate seed sprouts like hand-watering easily does.
