Last December when I decided to get back into growing I set out in search of anything that would not tie me to daily watering. Being tied to the grow room twice daily certainly played a role in my divorce, a small one but nonetheless, a role. I looked at DWC and drip pots and all sorts of devices that would fit my budget.
Autopots work for any type of plant and not just autoflower cannabis.
It’s a passive hydro system of continuous bottom feeding and neat “aquavalves” that allow the pots to dry a bit before the next batch of nute solution is allowed into the pot. The system is gravity fed by a 12 gallon res (looks like a kitchen garbage can) and during my last grow I could go up to 11 days between res fill ups.
I love them as they have been problem free but one caveat, they don’t play well with organic nutes. Any nutrients or additives that had sediment will clog the lines and create problems. Mineral based nutes only although, many folks are using super soils and an item called “bio-tabs” where everything is in the pot, res just filled with water.
Thanks again and for checking in.
