How does the Smart Pot work?:

IWS Systems are low labour easy maintenance watering systems. When feeding, plant pots are flooded with feed. When feeding ends pots are quickly drained of feed. This locks oxygen in the root zone, drives nutrient uptake, fuels growth and impedes unwanted root diseases.

 

The nutrient solution is housed inside a reservoir and pumped into a separate control pot which floods individual containers to the correct level and for the correct duration. In a flood and drain set-up, each individual container sits on an IWS pot stand and consists of 3 parts:

  1. Outer Pot - The outer pot is connected to the system via a gland and creates an area for flooding the root system and substrate.
  2. Inner Pot - The inner pot supports the Smart Pot inner and is used to house your choice of growing medium and allows superior aeration of your root zone over the standard inner pot, this leads to better rooting structure, less time need for vegetative growth and increased health.
  3. Smart Pot - The IWS Smart Pot inner can be filled with suitable substrate and your chosen plant can then be potted up.

Once your plant is potted up, the Inner Pot can be positioned on top of the Outer and your system can be turned on. We provide full instructions on how to set up and operate your system.

Tip: IWS Cloth Pots are especially useful when using coco in your IWS system as it is coarser than clay pebbles, seramis or rockwool and can lead to pipe blockage.

As always, take great care when handling root systems to reduce stress as much as possible.
