Equipped for every eventuality, Tray2Grow includes optional capillary spikes that can be fitted to the inside of the tray. These pierce the underside of a grow bag, allowing you to irrigate the substrate within. With the spikes removed and capillary matting in place Tray2Grow can take up to four standard sized seed trays, any number of bottom-perforated or bio pots, two of our new micro herb trays, or our capacious 120 L framed fabric planter. Three guide holes on each side of the tray are provided for garden canes if you're trellising plants and there are three inset spirit levels to help you ensure everything is 100% horizontal.
As with all AutoPot Watering Systems, irrigation is supplied via the AQUAvaive5 in the tray. It opens to supply water to a 20 mm depth and then closes. Once the plants have used that supply the AQUAvalve5 reopens to repeat the cycle. No need to second guess plant requirements, compensate for conditions or recalibrate unnecessary pumps or computers.
Directing water to your container of choice are a network of channels in the base of the tray. Onto these you place capillary matting which draws irrigation up, through root control into the growing container. When using grow bags, strips of capillary matting are laced into the optional spikes. The strips lie in the channels with the spikes screwed into the tray at intervals along its length. If you wish you can also supply nutrient solution via the capillary mat or strips. AQUAvalve5 is mineral and organic capable, giving you even greater scope to grow the way you want.
