The Round Matrix System can be used with pots ranging from 7.5”-18” diameters. The Matrix was not designed to be suspended above, but rather directly on top of, or touching the medium. There are two dimensions for each unit, the larger one is the outer diameter. Measure your pot & purchase the Matrix that fits inside of it. You will need a Matrix unit, the same size Matrix Pad (optional), & the correlating Matrix Circulator. Use with Open Flow Bubblers (not the Multi Flow Bubbler) for Maximum Pressure.
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 system blocks light & keeps the top of your medium moist for a more even dry down.
