Ambius Subirrigation solution

Our subirrigation solution is a sophisticated best practice that provides multiple benefits for your indoors.


What is subirrigation

Subirrigation is a precise Sustainable method of watering where water is delivered under the grow pot and absorbed upwards via a wick. 

Subirrigation is available on Ambius containers, bespoke solutions and client owned.


How it works

  • 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.


Why subirrigation?

  • Better for the health of the plant, extends plant life 

  • Water reservoir holds enough water between servicing, providing peace of mind especially during warmer conditions

  • Using cone liners provides a sealed, leak proof solution

  • Reduced shock to plants, as water is able to reach room temperature in reservoir

  • Reduced plant pests and disease

  • Enables the plants to effectively remove VOC’s thus improving Indoor Air Quality

  • Longevity of topping condition (top watering stains)
