The Spreader Mat is ideal for use within Nutrient Film Technique systems to ensure an even spread of water and nutrients across the roots of your plants.
What is the Spreader Mat used for?
Spreader Mats are great for use within NFT systems. This is because they line the top trays of your system to break the surface tension of the nutrient solution. This ensures that your nutrient solution spreads evenly across your system to reach all plant roots. It’s important that you trim your spreader mat correctly to fit snug into your system. The roots of your plants should grow out of the bottom of your rockwool cubes and then into the spreader mat.
Furthermore, these mats feature layers of fine strands of fibre that allow the nutrient solution to adequately reach all of the plants within your system. Therefore this ensures that each of your plants is nourished equally. Likewise, you can also use this to line plant pots to prevent your growing medium escaping.
Where can you use the Spreader Mat?
This is predominantly for use within both NFT systems and the inside of plant pots. Likewise, you can also use this to line plant pots to prevent your growing medium escaping. Its a must-have material for any grower looking to improve their plants growing environment.
How to use the Spreader Mat
To use this simply trim it to correctly fit the size of your NFT tray, as your plant’s roots grow they will spread throughout the matting. You can line the inside of your plant pots with this material to ensure a stable and secure placement of growing material too. Just simply trim to size and place within the inside of your pot.
