Using a plant pot saucer under your pot allows you to easily catch this run-off when watering, preventing it from spilling onto your grow-room floor. Our round pot saucers have a ridged bottom so that your pot stands off the flat bottom of the saucer. This allows the run-off to flow more freely out of the pot.
Traditional round pot saucers are designed for catching run-off from your round plant pots. The higher the lipped side, the more amount of run-off they can hold.
Simply place the appropriate size round pot saucer underneath your plant pot and allow it to catch the excess water (the run-off) out of the bottom of your pot.
When you water it is always advisable to allow 10-20% of your water/nutrient solution you pour into the top of your pot to run out of the bottom. This washes out toxins and old nutrients which build up in the medium. This run-off can then be tested for pH and EC/CF/PPM, giving you an insight into the plant's requirements at different stages.
Once the pot has finished draining, tip away the run-off to prevent the growing medium from re-soaking up the waste.
