Overview

Overview

Tired of hand watering plants? Sick of removing the run off? Automate it all…try our EXCLUSIVE RhizoSystem Drip and Drain!

Use it to drip feed plants the exact dose needed for optimum 20 - 20% run off – no more, no less.

To fight root rot, mineral build ups and oversaturation, all run off is removed before it can get reabsorbed.

For EVEN GREATER drainage, you get a RhizoPot with each stand – bargain!

  • RhizoSystem (drip & drain)
  • Standard size stands (for up to 16L pots)
  • Automatically removes run off (waste feed)
  • Complete with full drip system 

Expandable & Flexible

You can expand it or customise your system easily. Extra parts can be bought separately. 

No spillages

Automatically removing run off keeps your tents clear of spilages. 

Hassle-free

Once set up, everything's automated.You only need to empty your waste tank.

Prevents mineral build ups

You can easily achieve 20-30% run off, which flushes unused minerals out of your media. That way, plants get the right ratio of nutrients. 

Reduce risk of root rot

Stale, stagnant, oxygen-depleted feed is removed so plants can't reabsorb it. This helps prevent root diseases.

Precise feeding

You get complete control of what, when & how much you feed.

The Science

What's Run Off?

After watering your plants, you’ll notice that some of the feed gathers underneath your pots.

This is called ‘run off’.

Without run off, salts, minerals and nutrients accumulate in your pot:

• It’s toxic to your plant
• Plants no longer get the right nutrients
• Plant growth is poor  

To flush out nutrients and salts that would otherwise have gathered in your pot, aim for a 20 – 30% run off.  Any more than this is just wasteful. 

Why use a RhizoSystem?

All that run off has to go somewhere.

If you leave your plants sitting in it, it gets reabsorbed.

You don’t want this to happen

1. The run off will have become stagnant and may contain bacteria
- This leads to root problems, poor nutrient absorption and even root rot

2.
Your growing media becomes saturated with unoxygenated water
- You end up with lots water, but no oxygen - roots need both

3. Some nutrients and salt remain your growing media
- When you next feed your plants, the nutrient profile isn’t going to be right.

With a RhizoSystem, all run off is removed, so none of this happens.  

You can safely achieve the optimum 20 – 30% run off, without any issues.

3. Setting up your system

Your kit comes with a set of instructions, complete with diagrams and suggested layouts.

For better drainage

  • Keep drainage lines pulled tight for efficient drainage.

If your room is on a slope

  • Position your RhizoSystem Brain Controller at the lowest point
  • We recommend raising some of the stands so that all are level

Your RhizoSystem Brain

  • Make sure it is plugged into your mains power supply at all times
  • Keep unused inlet pipes covered with blanking caps to stop leaks

Q & A

Questions and Answers (3)

Whats the maximum number of standard size Rhizopots you can fit in a 1.2 x 1.2 space with this system? It says 4 on the guide but surely it's possible to fit 9 at a squeeze?
You might just get 6 in there at a squeeze - the standard stands are 37.5 x 37.5cm, but you also need to leave room for the pipework coming off them. We would advise sticking with 4 in a 1.2 x 1.2 tent, as the plants will be less crowded & have more room to fill out.

Can I get the 8XL and start off setting up as only 4 and expand later? If it is set up for 8 can I then only run 7 without having to re-wire or disconnect?
It is possible to expand the Rhizosystem Drip & Drain, you can run up to 48 pots from a single reservoir. It is possible to run an 8 pot system with 7 pots, you would just need to remove one drip line from the drip system.

Does it work with SUMO FEEDS? (8 x XL)
The Rhizosystem Drip & Drain will work really well with either the Shogun Samurai Terra or Coco nutrients, you would use the Terra range for soil, & the Coco nutrient for Coco media.
