AutoPot vs PowerGrow vs RootSpa


#1

I am anxious to try DWC for the first time and am looking to buy just a single bucket system to start out with. I have been reading as much as I can about these three inexpensive starters:
AutoPot
PowerGrow
RootSpa
I thought to myself, “While I am scouring the internet looking for information on them, I should ask here where I trust opinions more.”
So, if anyone has any opinions (especially if you have tried more than one of the above products) I would love to hear them - both bad and good.
I found some Amazon links for those who are not familiar and may want to see what they are…
AutoPot:

PowerGrow: (Amazon only has the 4 bucket system, you can look at the vendor’s website to see the 1 bucket)

Root Spa:

I am going to be starting my 5th or 6th autopot indoor grow in a week or so.

I also have nothing bad to say about autopots. I don’t have any experience with the other choices.

The one thing I might say is, autopots grow large plants (I use 3.9 gallon pots) and photo plants that grow large will be a challenge to manage in a tight space such as a tent. In fact, in my 4x4 tent, one autoflower plant in an autopot takes up most/all of the space and, my most recent auto harvested came in at close to 12 ounces of bud in the jars.

Best.
