Sub-Irrigator

The Sub-Irrigator provides the advantages of ebb-and-flow irrigation in an in-line setup. It is ideal for use in seeding, propagation and shipping lines, where uniform watering is needed and overhead watering would either be insufficient or not desirable. The final watering before shipping can be critical and the sub-irrigator fully waters the roots without putting moisture, and therefore the possibility of molding, on the upper parts of the plant during shipping.
