Sub-irrigated planter (SIP)

                                  Sub-irrigated planter.

Sub-irrigated planter (SIP) is a generic name for a special type of planting box used in container gardening. A SIP is any method of watering plants where the water is introduced from the bottom, allowing the water to soak upwards to the plant through capillary action.Several Grow Buckets can be combined into a self-watering garden system and connected to a water barrel for automatic irrigation in buildings or urban settings.

SIP are the easiest self-watering planters to grow their own food.A SIP can be joined into a self-watering garden framework.A buoy valve control is utilized to keep up the ideal water level all through the framework. As the water is drawn up by the wicking and consumed by the plants the buoy will drop and open the valve recharging the framework consequently. A water barrel is refilled about once every week or two, depending on the number of SIP in your system. . The absence of electric pumps implies that power is redundant. 

The main key to this framework is the growing medium. It must have a solid wicking property. Soil or fertilizer won't work extremely well. Perlite and vermiculite are suggested.Mycorrhizae Fungi and a slow release organic fertilizer are added at planting time.

Spun polypropylene fabric permits abundance water seepage and air circulation of the root zone which is essential for ideal developing conditions. As roots become out to the permeable fabric they get to be presented to air, dry out and kick the bucket. This causes the plant to deliver thick fine feeder roots and counteracts root revolving around. The expansion in fine feeder roots prompts better supplement and water assimilation and advances quickened plant development.

Plastic kitchen colander, that will hold the fabric sack off of the base of the container and make a shallow water supply in each develop basin.Holes around the SIP and fabric sack gaps permit sufficient air development gives ideal wicking action to the medium. By keeping up the best possible water level with the buoy valve controller the medium will never dry out and will consistently wick dampness up to the root-zone. This system can be used in inorganic,organic and hydroponics growing systems.
