Why use a square saucer?
Although not necessary, a saucer is a good addition to a grow room.
First, Saucers are important if you plan on keeping a sterile area. They will catch any run off from feeding. Most nutrient companies will direct you to water the plant until you achieve some run off. Without trays, this water will end up on your grow room floor. Secondly, if not cleaned correctly, you risk getting mold or attracting pests. Both pests and mold love a damp environment. Also, if there are damp patches in your grow room, it can raise the humidity too.
how to use square saucers.
To keep your grow room sterile, there are a few tips to using your saucer for best results.
- First, water your plants as normal, with a little bit of run off into your saucer.
- Second, After a few minutes, Clean and dry your saucer
- Finally, wait 15 minutes, then go back to clean and dry your saucer again.
What not to do.
Do not leave water sitting in the saucer. Although it may be handy and people mistakenly feel that it helps the plant. It doesn’t. As well as attracting mold and insects, leaving water in the tray restricts oxygen from reaching the roots by water logging the soil/coco. Any leaves that drop will grow moldy much quicker and any dirt in the atmosphere or from your clothes may settle in your water and affect the plant. Plus, if the plant doesn’t soak the water quick enough the PH of the solution may change and the water goes stagnant and is a perfect place for growing bacteria and parasites
