Capillary Mat System
By Tristen Distler
Capillary mats are constructed with absorbent fabric that is lined on the bottom with polyethylene film and covered on top with perforated polyethylene or similar material that minimizes water loss to evaporation, but allows water uptake into the media of containers sitting on the mat.
Plants that are ideal for this system are easter liles and anything in a plastic pot.
You can use capillary mats in greenhouses and outdoors only for potted plants
