Why capillary mattings?

A capillary matting distributes and buffers the water evenly over pot plants and can be described as the final link between nature and science during cultures. A functional and efficiently operating capillary matting is essential for a uniform growth of the crop and a good root development of the plants in the pot.

The advantages when using Capillary mattings:

  • Water supply from underneath, leading to a good development of plant roots in pots.
  • Investments in expensive and complicated pipe systems are unnecessary.
  • Flexibility, several types of pot plants can grow on a particular type of matting.
  • Good accessibility, leading to smooth and efficient culture changes.
  • Less vaporization of water.
  • Low investment costs.
  • Low system maintenance costs.

Two factors play an important role in the decision making process for capillary mattings: capillary action and water capacity.

The term capillary action refers to the degree in which the capillary matting distributes water evenly over the entire surface. Water capacity is related to the buffer function of a capillary matting and is the amount of water it is capable of holding.
