The FloraFlex® Round Matrix Pad is part of the Matrix System, a first of its kind patent pending Top Feeding Wicking System that provides the most even way to deliver water and nutrients to your plants. The Round Matrix system can be used with 7.5 "-18" diameter pots. You will need a Round Matrix, the same size Matrix Pad, and the corresponding Matrix Circulator.
Water and nutrients enter the circulator, hit the slope of the Matrix and are pushed out into eight maze sections with individual holes that drip the water and nutrients onto the Matrix Wicking Pad.
The Matrix Pad is a lightweight non-woven capillary mat that is placed between the Round Matrix and the medium. Traditionally, capillary pads are placed under plants, but FloraFlex designed the Matrix Pad to absorb water and wick to the top of the medium, delivering water and nutrients evenly.
Choose the right size
Choose your Matrix Pad based on the diameter of your pot:
7.5 "- 9" (19-23cm)
9 "- 10.5 ″ (23-27cm)
10.5 "- 12" (27-31cm)
12.5 "- 14.5" (32-37cm)
15.5 "- 18" (40-46cm)
How to install:
Place the Matrix Pad (optional) on the surface of your plant, the Round / Square Matrix on top, push it down, place the Matrix Circulator in the center holes and connect your Flora Tube to the Matrix Circulator.
For optimal pressure, it is best to buy the Multi Flow Bubbler, remove the pressure regulating inserts from it, so as not to restrict the flow of the power supply.
