A Super-oxygenated pot
The Flo-Gro dripper system is a super-oxygenated pot with a timer. It's renowned for producing huge yields.
The pot is filled with clay pebbles
and nutrient solution is pumped from the reservoir and over the plants
through a dripper ring as per the timer settings.
Ideal for maximising growth and yields from large plants and cultivating plants for cuttings.
The use of a timer means that longer and more frequent feeds can be delivered to plants as they mature.
The Flo-Gro produces much bigger harvests than plants grown in traditional pots, but is just as simple to use.
The timer triggers a pump to push
nutrient solution up to a dripper ring which drips the solution over the
clay pebbles in the planter. Whatever the plant doesn't take-up drains
back into the tank, pulling fresh oxygen down to the roots which
Plants produce superb yields in a Flo Gro because they have much better
access to oxygen than is possible in a pot and they are able to take up
more water and nutrients than hand watered pots, because they are fed
little and often.
Healthy rootzone even for long-term plants
- With hand-watering the air pockets in soil and coco become filled
with water - restricting root access to oxygen. But the Flo Gro
maintains high levels of oxygen around the roots at all times. This
means plants can be grown for longer so you get more yield from fewer
Match feed frequency to the needs of the plant- Provide the perfect conditions for a plant throughout its lifecycle by altering the frequency and duration of feeds.
Space efficient – The largest Flo Gro is just 30cms tall to maximise headroom.
Reliable – Built to last for decades.
Why yields are bigger when using a Flo Gro
The secret of the huge yields is that
the Flo Gro is a super-oxygenated pot and plants with better access to
oxygen produce bigger yields.
Oxygen and Pots
a plant is hand watered the water fills the air spaces between the soil
particles and this prevents the roots from accessing oxygen. It’s only
as the media dries out that more oxygen becomes available to the roots.
The key is to water little and often, but this means lots of work to
keep on top of watering.
Oxygen and the Flo Gro
a Flo Gro the access to oxygen is superb because the roots receive
fresh oxygen-rich air every time the unused solution drains through the
pebbles into the tank.
Fast-draining - The
speed at which the solution drains through the pebbles is critical in
pulling oxygen into the root area, the Flo Gro has been designed to
ensure the drainage is at the optimum speed.
Clay pebbles - Clay
pebbles are used in a Flo Gro instead of soil, or coco because the
regular timed feeding means we don't want or need the growing medium to
retain much water. This is important because clay pebbles allow much
more air around the roots than any other growing medium.
Surface area - The
shape and size of the Flo Gro exposes a large amount of the clay pebbles
to the air so that even more oxygen is present in the rootzone.
And one more thing....The
timer triggers feeding and watering much more frequently than is
possible with hand-watering. This means plants are able to take up much
more water and nutrients than if they were hand-watered and therefore
yields are much bigger and growth is faster.
The ideal environment for long term plants.
No other pot provides better access to oxygen.
