|Even water distribution – and redistribution.
Each Florimat has a specific capillary action so that it not only delivers water evenly, but also pulls water from plants which are not using it to those which are. We aim for a variation in “water tension” of < + 2.5cm w.g. (1) By comparison, Dutch work in the ‘80s measured what happens in peat when water is held at tensions as high as 31.6cm w.g., or 1.5 pF.

● Plants on any one area of Florimat should “all get the same breakfast” when they are watered, “and all grow the same muscles" as they dry.
● “Topping up” by hosepipe should be unnecessary.
