DUOGROW

Duogrow Grow 2x bigger harvests, holiday-proof your plants & brighten up your patio – all with our Duogrow planter.

 

The Duogrow keeps your plants perfectly fed and watered for up to 14 days at a time, releasing water as and when plants need it, so you get a bumper harvest. Ideal for plants usually grown in a pot or growbag – tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, aubergines, peppers and any tall cropping plant.

 

Dimensions: L67cm x W32cm x H56cm

The Duogrow is easy to use.

Place the FeederMats in the pots, add compost and plants, and fill the Duogrow SmartReservoir that sits below the pots. The FeederMats will pull water up from the SmartReservoir exactly when the plants need it, keeping the soil perfectly moist without ever over-watering.

 

Plants in a Duogrow are healthier and stronger because there's no risk of erratic watering - the cause of root rot, split fruit and blossom end rot. Ideal for growing your own veg on a patio or in a greenhouse.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE OVER WATER?

Overwatering prevents roots from accessing oxygen and is the number one cause of plant demise.

 

When soil is over-watered the pores in the soil become blocked and the roots can't access the air in the soil.

 

Roots need access to oxygen in order to absorb water and nutrients, so lack of oxygen means that the roots can't take up water or nutrients.

 

A plant weakened by overwatering is susceptible to disease, particularly fungal attacks.

 

If the over-watering is repeated the roots suffocate and die.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE UNDER WATER?

Under watered plants don’t have enough water to make glucose for photosynthesis, for developing cells and for two other often forgotten critical functions.

 

Transporting nutrients and glucose Water is needed to carry nutrients from soil and glucose from leaves to the other parts of the plant.

 

This is why the calcium deficiency blossom end rot is often caused by erratic watering even if there is sufficient calcium in the soil but not enough water to transport it to the tomatoes.

 

Accessing carbon dioxide Plants access the carbon dioxide they need for photosynthesis by opening the pores on their leaves and stems. When the pores open they also release water.

 

If the plant is short of water it won't open the pores as frequently and therefore it won't photosynthesise as much, which will lead to lack of glucose and therefore stunted growth.

 

Sunny, hot weather increases the rate of water loss through the pores, so plants need more water in these conditions.
