Each layer consists of 6 planting ports with 100 mm openings. The distance between each planting port is 250 mm and the depth is 200 mm. The weight of one unit is 1.25 kg. The height of a stack of 6 units is 450 mm and when assembled, it is 1200 mm high and gives you 36 planting ports.
Easy Grow also stocks everything you need in order to grow plants in your Easy Grow pots including soil, seeds, stands, stabilising poles and all irrigation specifically designed for the Easy Grow system. The irrigation system makes use of the drip irrigation method which conserves water, lowers production costs and has a high distribution of water. The Easy Grow irrigation system uses spaghetti tubing with a six way manifold. The flow rate is controlled by button drippers at each cavity and may be regulated depending on crop and flow rate required.
To achieve the desired height, the Easy Grow Vertically Stackable Grow Pots can be locked securely into place. Insert the 1 inch pegs which are on the bottom of each unit into the holes provided on the top of the succeeding unit during installation. The towers need to be pre-stacked before they are filled with medium. This will ensure that the units return to their original shape when moulded and once they have been filled with the planting mix, they will be easier to re-stack. In extremely windy regions, it is recommended that the towers be stabilised by adding a galvanised pipe/conduit or a rebar that will fit inside a 40 mm ID hole – provision has been made through the centre of each of the units for this purpose. We are able to assist you with fertiliser, growing mediums and irrigation.
