The Easy2grow 12-Pot system by Autopot is best suited to those wanting to grow short, stocky, bushy plants. Like most hydroponic systems Easy2grow systems take out all the hard work where hand-watering is simply too much of a time commitment for most hobby gardeners.
Easy2Grow 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 Green 8.5L square pots and each system is supplied with a 100L Flexitank and all of the necessary fittings and pipework to set the system up. We also list the system with a 225l FlexiTank for those wanting to leave the system for longer periods (up to around a week) without topping up the tank. 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 Easy2grow 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.
