Subirrigation is a precise Sustainable method of watering plants where water is delivered under the grow pot and absorbed upwards via a wick.
Subirrigation is available on Ambius containers, bespoke and client owned solutions.
The water is poured into the container, the wick at the bottom of the grow pot takes the water up to the roots of the plant by osmosis.
Osmosis is the movement of water from an area of high concentration which is how the plant roots draw water to soil.
The wick acts as a prosthetic root with access to a reservoir that is able to take water up on it’s own terms.
