I am new to auto pots this grow but I did use them. My primary reason being I used the air domes. I think a couple others use them not sure how many though.
I use spring pots and also put hydroton in the bottom. Some use golf wiffle balls instead. They are a lot easier to dig out of the coco that’s for sure.
The clay balls are not advised.
They are clay and thus they have ph problems, it’s a mess, extra cost and time consuming but if you really want you cna buy the clay balls but then you must ph soak them for 2 days at 5.8 if running. Soil less.
If your running airdomes you can pick up plastic golf balls with holes in them and use those or you can line it with perlite. Some even don’t use anything different with their airdomes just coco or coco/perlite.
Good point. Plus they are really dusty so the need a good rinse and soak
All in all a PIA
Ps @beardless congrats on member of the month.
Exactly what I did with mine. Double rinsed and soaked them in ph water.
Buying plastic golf balls means they have no ph issues and you can re use them for ever.
Ok, sounds like this run will be straight Coco!
Thanks for all the advice everyone!
