The AutoPot 48-Pot systems are where the Autopots really come into their own, where hand-watering is simply too much of a time commitment for most hobby gardeners.
AutoPot systems are plant driven, gravity-fed systems (meaning no noise from pumps or potential pump failure). The Aquavalve in each pot-base will fill the tray to 20mm and then close until the tray is completely empty before refilling to 20mm, allowing every plant an essential dry period and be fed on demand regardless of the rest of the plants in the room.
We recommend growers use a good quality soil in this system such as House and Garden Bat Special or Canna Terra Professional Plus (always on around a 40-50mm bed of clay pebbles).
Available with the standard 15l square pots and each system is supplied with a 400L Flexitank and all of the necessary fittings and pipework to set the system up. All options come with Iceline supply pipe to keep the nutrient temperature to a minimum whilst between the reservoir and the plant.
As with all of the Autopot systems, your plants will need to be hand-watered from the top as required for the first 7-10 days. Once the roots have had a chance to establish within the pot the tap can be turned on. It is a very good idea to clean the 16mm filter every few weeks and avoid putting any organics or viscous additives in the reservoir.
