FAQsHow does the Floraflex Matrix Pad help in distributing water and nutrients to my plants?
The Floraflex Matrix Pad works as part of the Matrix irrigation system. When water and nutrients travel into the Matrix Circulator, they are pushed outward into eight maze sections with individual holes. These holes drip water and nutrients onto the Matrix Wicking Pad, which then absorbs and wicks these essential elements to the top of the growing medium, providing even distribution for your plants.How does the Floraflex Matrix Pad differ from traditional capillary mats?
The major difference is that traditional capillary mats are placed underneath plants, while the Floraflex Matrix Pad is designed to be placed between the Matrix and the growing medium. This unique design allows it to absorb water and wick it to the top of the medium, delivering water and nutrients evenly for optimal plant growth.Can I use the Floraflex Matrix Pad for different pot sizes?
Yes, the 10.5" Floraflex Matrix Pad is designed to fit pots with a diameter within the range of 10.5 to 15.5 inches. Remember to use the appropriate Matrix unit and Matrix Circulator for your pots to ensure optimal performance.How many Matrix Pads come in one pack?
The Floraflex Matrix Pad 12 Pack includes a total of 12 Matrix Pads, which are lightweight non-woven capillary mats.Do I need any additional components to use the Floraflex Matrix Pad in my garden setup?
Yes, the Floraflex Matrix Pad is just one part of the Matrix irrigation system. To complete the setup, you will also need a Matrix unit and a Matrix Circulator corresponding to the size of the pots you are using.Is the Floraflex Matrix Pad reusable?
Depending on the level of wear and tear, the Matrix Pads can be washed, sanitized, and potentially reused. However, it is recommended to regularly monitor the condition of the pads and replace them as needed to ensure optimal and consistent water and nutrient distribution for your plants.
