The MATRIX | 15.5" - 18" (12 PACK) features a unique design that allows water and nutrients to travel into the Circulator, hitting the slope of the Matrix and being pushed outward into eight maze sections. Each section has individual holes that gently drip water and nutrients onto the Wicking Pad, facilitating even and consistent hydration for your plants. The Matrix pad, made from a capillary mat, effectively absorbs and distributes moisture throughout the system. With its reusable construction, the Matrix can either sit on top of or fit into your pot, ensuring that all surfaces are in contact for optimal performance. Choose the appropriate Matrix size based on your pot's diameter for a perfect fit and reliable watering system.

Prepare your pot: Select a pot with a diameter ranging from 15.5" to 18". Ensure that the pot is clean and free from any debris or obstructions.
Place the Matrix Pad: Begin by placing the Matrix Pad on the surface of the growing medium in your pot. The Matrix Pad acts as a capillary mat, enhancing water absorption and promoting even moisture distribution.
Position the Matrix Unit: Take one of the Matrix Units from the 12-pack and position it on top of the Matrix Pad. Ensure that the entire base of the Matrix Unit makes direct contact with the Matrix Pad and the growing medium.
Secure the Matrix Unit: Gently press down on the Matrix Unit to secure it in place. This step ensures stability and proper alignment of the unit within the pot.
Fit the Circulator: Locate the center holes on the Matrix Unit and fit the Circulator, which is included in the pack, into these holes. The Circulator allows water and nutrients to flow through the Matrix Unit, promoting efficient distribution.
Connect the tubing: Take your 1/4" OD tubing and connect it to the barbed nozzles of the Circulator. Ensure a tight and secure connection to prevent any leaks.
Verify the setup: Double-check that all components are properly connected and aligned. Confirm that the Matrix Unit, Matrix Pad, Circulator, and tubing are securely in place.
Activate the system: Once the FLORAFLEX MATRIX | 15.5" - 18" system is set up, activate your irrigation system or manually provide water and nutrients to the Matrix. Adjust the flow rate according to your plants' specific requirements.
Monitor and adjust: Regularly monitor the moisture levels in your plants' growing medium and make adjustments to the irrigation frequency as needed. Observe how the Matrix system ensures consistent water and nutrient distribution to the root zone.
