AutoPot 12Pot XL System
AutoPot self-watering systems deliver outstanding performance with a strong emphasis on efficiency and conservation of resources. These well made gravity-fed systems are great for pros and beginners alike, and require no electricity, pumps, or timers to operate. Considered to be among the world’s most environmentally friendly watering systems for both hobbyist and commercial hydroponic markets, AutoPot systems ensure plants use everything that is supplied to them with no loss of water, run-off, or leakage!
All AutoPot Watering Systems are extremely versatile and can be used with the medium/substrate of your choice. An ideal substrate for use in AutoPot systems is a 50% mix of perlite with either soil or coco. Always use good quality soil or coco coir such as Canna Coco. AutoPot Watering Systems have grown plants in a vast range of substrates from coral to denim and pumice stone… we are now using the systems for aeroponic plant growth. Whatever substrate you decide to use, make sure its light, fluffy and free draining.
NOTE: If using Hydroton clay pebbles, whether at the bottom of the pot as additional drainage or as part of the mix, the clay pebbles must be pH stable. Be aware that certain brands are not pH stable and will increase the pH of the water in the tray, which can dramatically affect plant growth. If you are unsure whether your clay pebbles are pH stable, pre-soak them for a minimum period of 48 hours in 4.5 pH water. This will stabilize the pH of the clay pebbles. Also, clay pebbles should not be used alone as there is not enough capillary action in the clay pebbles to draw the water high up into the pot. Clay pebbles should always be used with additional substrates.
