FLOWERPOT INSTRUCTIONS

1) Start by setting the enail controller to 625 deg F. It is important to give it a few minutes to settle, our PID controller comes programmed to overshoot the desired temperature and then settle back to the desired temperature. The reason for this is simply to reach the desired temperature quicker. We made an entire video explaining this, watch it HERE.

2) Add your flower to the Body.  We recommend filling it just enough for one session. Overfilling can reduce airflow and lead to combustion.  

3) If also using concentrates for that ideal Twax experience, load your dabber and get it ready to go.

4) With both Body and dabber loaded, place FlowerPot top onto the Body (Shovelhead), and begin to inhale as you apply the dabber to the dish.  Cover with ShowerCap or the Vrod Carb Cap to ensure full extraction of your concentrates. The ideal result is to NOT COMBUST the flower but fully melt the dabs. This is easily achievable but may require some practice and adjustments.   Once you've hit a sweet spot, try and gradually lower the temp each session to increase flavors. Try carb capping flower as well!

IMPORTANT NOTE: The FlowerPot will require some fine tuning on your part, the Flowerpot is customizable to YOUR personal style of drawing. Ex. If you tend to draw FAST AND HARD your temperature will need to be higher, if you tend to draw SLOW TO MEDIUM then your temperatures can be lower. We made a video explaining this, you can watch it HERE.

5) Replace the FlowerPot top to its stand for protection while not in use.

6) Save your already vaped bud "AVB" to simmer in coconut oil for edibles.

FLOWERPOT PARTS

VROD EXPLODED VIEW

Assembly guide for FlowerPot ShowerHead

 


HERE ARE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS TO GET YOU STARTED

1) SELECT YOUR GLASS RIG

We recommend the 18mm female rig with a wide base for stability. Changing the glass rigs is part of the fun and appeal of the Flowerpot.

2) SELECT THE BODY THAT FITS YOUR GLASS RIG

The Shovelhead body (bowl) is a modular bowl that will allow you to attach any size joint to fit any size glass by choosing one of our available posts.

If you already own your own piece of glass, you may select the joint size from 10mm male, 10mm female, 14mm male, 14mm female or 18mm male

Check out this VIDEO on how to adjust your Shovelhead onto any piece of glass

3) SELECT YOUR HEAD (VROD or SHOWERHEAD)

  1. Vrod is optimized for both flower and concentrates, offers excellent airflow and the dish size has been expanded to 28mm for a better concentrate experience. Dishes available for the Vrod are the 28mm Quartz Dish and the 28mm NewVape SiC Dish.

  2. Shower Head has been optimized for flower and is only available with a titanium dab surface and the 20mm coil.

4) SELECT YOUR ENAIL AND COIL

The NewVape 20mm Coil will work with both the Showerhead and the Vrod.

Note: The Vrod requires the NewVape 20mm Coil or any coil that has the specifications noted in this VIDEO

5) SELECT YOUR STAND

A coil stand is required for the Flowerpot. The stand should provide a safe place for the head and coil to heat up to temp. We recommend the FlowerPot Stand and Debowler OR the FlowerPot Tray Base and Lid but a Soldering Iron Stand will work as well.

Keep the coil and head off rig and on the stand in between draws. This keeps your flowers from cooking when not drawing.

6) CHOOSE A CARB CAP

The flowerpot utilizes the carb cap while vaping flower as well as concentrates. Each head has their own specific Carb Cap, please choose accordingly. Vrod Carb Cap and ShowerCap.

ADDITIONAL TIPS

8) FINE GRIND

Using fine ground flower when vaping is important because it increases the surface area of the material being vaped. This is an important step that many people gloss over when just starting out with vaping flower. NewVape carries a selection of Fine Grinders that have been optimized for Vaping. Check out our popular 3” Fine Gringer OR the 3’ Arm Band Fine Grinder

9) SAFETY FIRST

Stop worrying if you turned off the enail and please invest in a SAFETY TIMER for your enail. We suggest either  an Old School Rotary or a High Tech Wifi timer, whichever your choice, we highly recommend that you get one.

Here's a diy video of how to build one from Home Depot Parts.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. What is the Flowerpot Twax Vaporizer?

A. The FlowerPot Twax Vaporizer is the first-of-its-kind desktop vaporizer. We engineered a system that 1) creates the most efficient, delicious flower vapor that has ever existed, and 2) combines flower vaporization with a concentrate nail which creates a flavor explosion that has to be inhaled to be believed! The Flowerpot uses a traditional 20mm enail coil and marries it with NewVape's expertly crafted titanium parts.

Q. How can the Flowerpot vaporize both flowers and concentrates at the same time?

A. The FlowerPot has an oven chamber section called the Body that contains your flowers. The Body sits on or in your 14 or 18mm male or female joint on your glass or other devices. The other section is the heater/enail portion. When you place the heater on top of the Body and draw, the holes that are drilled into the center of the heater will heat the air just enough to vaporize your flowers. If you choose to, you can place concentrates in the enail dish as you draw. This allows the concentrates as well as the flowers to vaporize simultaneously.

Q. What is the difference between the FlowerPot Showerhead vs the Flowerpot w/ Wrap-Around and the FlowerPot Vrod?

A. We heard from our most passionate users and realized that while many prefer to use both flowers and concentrates, people do have a preference for one or the other, so we diversified the FlowerPot to create the ShowerHead version for flower lovers and the Wrap-Around version for concentrate fans.

Both can vaporize flowers and oils perfectly, but the Showerhead is perfect for those that use flowers more often than oils due to it's higher number of air holes and a much higher airflow than the Wrap-Around Model.

The ShowerHead utilizes a grade 2 titanium dish. The Wrap-Around model vaporizes flowers perfectly well, but it also has the added benefit of allowing for multiple dish materials; Titanium, Quartz and Silicon Carbide are available.

 UPDATE

The FlowerPot Vrod is the third generation of the FlowerPot, it has been optimized to vaporize flower and concentrates with the most efficiency we have ever experienced. The intention behind the design of the FlowerPot Vrod was to merge the best features of the Showerhead (vaping flower) with the best features of the WrapAround (vaping concentrates and ability to change dishes). The result is the most efficient piece of vape machinery to exist!

NOTE: Some of our most avid users still have a preference for the Showerhead when vaping flower-only. Regardless of this ongoing debate, we can confidently say that the FlowerPot Vrod will satisfy your vaping needs whether you prefer vaping flower or concentrates. To join the discussion, join the Fuck Combustion Forum and share your experience with the NewVape FlowerPot!

Our internal statistic is that the Vrod has surpassed the performance of the Wraparound for concentrates, while keeping the flower vaporizing characteristics of the Showerhead. All in one rig!

Q. What temperature(s) do the Flowerpots operate at?

A. The beauty of the FlowerPot system is its versatility. The NewVape Enail Controller is capable of an extremely wide range of temperatures, far exceeding what is required for the most delicious vaporization. We suggest starting out @ 600F, and adjust to suit your tastes. Everyone has a different draw rate and when you combine this with the different airflow rates of the particular glass you're using, its vital to have full control of your temperature setting. We've found that setting the Enail controller to ~600 creates airflow to the flowers that is just at or above the required vaporization temperature for flowers of 374F. The dish is @ roughly 450F which is great for low-temperature dabs!

Q. What’s the difference between Titanium, Quartz, and SiC?

A. There are many taste profiles and some report better flavor with the different dish materials, we recommend picking up extras so you make sure you're getting the most out of your experience!

 As of 7/27/18 our FlowerPot Community reports preference for SiC dishes. But try them all and make your own conclusion!

Q. How much should I load into the FlowerPot body?

A. One of the unexpected results from our FlowerPot testing is that we were able to load ridiculously small amounts (.05g) and still get monster rips. The vaporizer industry has claimed that vapes reduce the amount you need to elevate. We're finally able to prove it for real.

Q. Where is the Flowerpot made?

A. The FlowerPot is made by NewVape in beautiful Boynton Beach, Florida. We make nearly everything we sell, and if we don't make it you can be damn sure we test the hell out of it before we'll offer it to you.

Q. Which Flowerpot is right for me?

A.The latest iteration of the FlowerPot Twax Vaporizer is the Vrod head. We engineered the Vrod for optimal performance for both flower and concentrates. Whether you are a flower-only user, a concentrate-only user or you would like the ultimate twax experience, the Vrod is sure to fulfill your needs.

Q. What size coil is best for the Flowerpot?

A. The FlowerPot Showerhead and the Vrod are designed around a 20mm coil. While the Showerhead is able to take any standard 20mm coil, the Vrod requires the NewVape 20mm coil or a coil that has the same specifications. The Vrod has a perfectly machined ramp on the inside of the head, where the thread is, this ramp makes full contact with the ramp on the top part of the coil. More contact creates better heat transfer. The Vrod was designed with the NewVape 20mm Coil in mind.

Q. Do I need a carb cap?

A. We definitely recommend using a carb cap with concentrates always, but we've also discovered how vital this tool is for flower usage as well. Its fully possible to use either version of the FlowerPot with no carb cap, but you will definitely lose some control over the experience.  They help ensure you're extracting every last bit of goodness from your flower and/or concentrate.

Q. What is the best type of glass to use with the Flowerpot?

A. The FlowerPot system will work with any piece that accepts a male or female ground-glass type joint in 10mm, 14mm or 18mm sizes.  The FlowerPot system adds about 3 inches to your connection, so while a HUGE variety of glass will accept the FlowerPot system, we have found that the taller the glass is, the better the overall user experience is.

 Q. I don’t have any glass, can I still use the Flowerpot?

A. We've seen people using the system without glass with great success, but we feel that using glass is the best experience possible.

Q. I already have an enail controller/PID. Can I use the FlowerPot?

A. If your enail controller/PID accepts the older style XLR connections. Please check your coil cable ends to ensure they are the same as what you need.

 Q. Why do I need a Flowerpot Base?

A. The FlowerPot Base & Debowler Stand is the perfect solution to storing your hot enail head while not in use. The super-stable base not only keeps your hot enail head under control, it has de-bowling spike that allows you to clean your Body after use. The excess ABV is stored in the base until you transfer it to long-term storage for use in making edibles and the like!

Q. What type of titanium does the FlowerPot use?

A. We only use highest possible quality Grade 2, US-Melted, US-Made Titanium, Stainless Steel and aluminum. Our factory is FDA approved.

Q. Is the metal certified?

A. You betcha! Our materials ship with certification for your review.

For Legacy Wraparound and OG FlowerPot owners.

 NOTE: If you're someone who prefers or can only access flowers, the ShowerHead version is for you. Many ShowerHead customers don't use concentrates at all, they just wanted the best possible flower vaporization experience so they use the FlowerPot with ShowerHead. If oils and concentrates are your thing, you'll love the FlowerPot w/ Wraparound head. This setup is more suited to concentrate lovers as it allows you change your dish material to suit your tastes, and doesn't have the extra airflow compared the ShowerHead version.

LEGACY PARTS FAQ’S

(Applies to legacy parts like the OG FlowerPot when compared to the Wraparound  and/or Showerhead)

Q. Can I convert my Flowerpot to the Showerhead?

A. If you have a 20mm coil, all you need is the Showerhead Nut, and Showerhead Top. The Showerhead does not work with 16mm coils.

Q. What size coil is best for the Flowerpot?

A. The FlowerPot with Wrap-Around head can work with both 16mm & 20mm coils, but we recommend the 20mm. The ShowerHead version will only work with the 20mm coils. NewVape does not plan to make a ShowerHead version to accept a 16mm coil at this time.

Q. Why does the ShowerHead only work with 20mm coils?

A. The ShowerHead only works with 20mm coils as using 16mm coils limited how many holes we could add to the head and thus the experience wasn't the same.

Q. What is the best type of glass to use with the Flowerpot?

A. The FlowerPot system will work with any piece that accepts a male or female ground-glass type joint. The FlowerPot system adds about 3 inches to your connection, so while a HUGE variety of glass will accept the FlowerPot system, we have found that the taller the glass is, the better the overall user experience is.

Q. What type of glass connections does the FlowerPot work with?

A. 14/18mm Male or Female ground-glass style joints.

Q. I already have an enail controller/PID. Can I use the FlowerPot?

A. If your enail controller/PID accepts the older style XLR connections. Please check your coil cable ends to ensure they are the same as what you need.

Q. My Body is stuck in my glass. What can I do?

A. Metal will expand very slightly when heated, and this will occasionally cause the Body to get temporarily stuck on or in your glass. Wait a minute for the parts to cool, and try to remove the Body by pulling straight up. Do not rock back and forth or you could break your glass.Also its a great idea to keep that connection free of oils that might collect from usage. This will make it very difficult to remove your body.

UPDATE: The design of the ShovelHead Body/Bowl was specifically targeting this issue. The design behind the ShovelHead allows it to sit on your glass with two points of contact once you have adjusted it to your specific piece of glass. In other words, you should no longer have this issue if you have updated to the ShovelHead Body.


Flowerpot History

NewVape began machining grade 2 titanium domeless nails in 2011. Our engineering and machining is all done in our south Florida FDA certified CNC machining facility. Since newVape's conception, we've always tried to "one-up" our previous designs. The Flowerpot is an evolved 3rd generation enail system that has been designed for vaping flower and concentrates. Imagine bong rips without the smell or coughing... Imagine the flower actually tasting like it smells...

So... what's a 3rd generation enail you ask?

The NewVape FlowerPot has evolved to become the ultimate twax vaporizer, that means vaping flower and concentrates (aka Twax) at the same time on the same rig at the same temperature. This is where the Flowerpot is different and unique.

Our hope is that you get reconnected with flower and enjoy the pure clean vapor the flowerpot produces. Since the flowerpot's conception, our friends enjoy much less concentrate, and much more flower..

The FlowerPot also produces what we call “After Vape Bud” (AVB). We have discovered that the already vaped bud can be simmered in coconut oil and filtered with a coffee filter for making infused edibles. Give your flowers a second life and don't forget to lockup the brownies.

We have been told the FlowerPot creates confusion because it is comprised of an overwhelming number of parts. And while we understand there are many parts to it, the reason is that the FlowerPot is a completely configurable system which makes it adaptable to any piece of glass you may own. If you are a glass collector, we will have the right part for you!
