About the FloraFlex System
The FloraFlex system is an innovative group of components that can combine together to make irrigation set ups for your plants. Each pot or rockwool cube has an insert or cap that evenly distributes water and nutrients across the media using a series of holes. These allow the solution to pass through, as well as oxygen while blocking light. This prevents the growth of algae and helps stop the movement of soil dwelling insects. FloraFlex caps connect to pipework through a range of fittings which, with a timer, periodically floods it. Pipe can then run from one to another, feeding many plants at once!
Alternatives to the FloraFlex system
At Straight Up Hydroponics, we have a variety of DIY parts so you can create your own system. Only FloraFex use the top caps though! Other systems that feed from the bottom include Autopot and EasyFeed. All of our parts and systems are on our website and you can see them here!
