BUILD 5

Tubing, reservoirs, and pots are all made from black plastic. The feeder mats are a stiff cloth-like material

FEATURES 5

Consists of four 11ltr pots sitting in a 30ltr reservoir with feeder mats that take up water when needed. This is linked to a 25ltr reservoir that keeps the main one topped up via a float valve.

PERFORMANCE 5

A great system for growing crops that constantly dry out, like tomatoes or cucumbers. Gives you the confidence to go away for a couple of weeks knowing that your plants will not miss you.

VALUE 4

Quality, design and performance shine out here. No need for a grow bag ever again.
