Autopot or ebb/flod is best.

There is some good ideas on you tube for self watering

I just put together an auto feed system . I used

1- aqua active 400 gph submersible pump
6” hydro halo rings
1/2 tubing
1/2 - tees and shut offs

Works great just make sure your pump is lower than the drippers to prevent a siphon.
I’ll tag you in my journal so you can see how I put it together :+1:

@lchalupa Check out Octopot.

I purchased a 2 pot system by Autopot. I have two questions about how to use it.
First, My two plants are ready to start flowering. Will I be succesful transplanting thies two
plants into AutoPot? Also I am using soil as my substrate. Do I need to put some clay pebbles in each pot for drainage? Any guidance will be appreciated.
