This self irrigating ‘Autopot 4Pot System’ system provides regular watering and dosing to plants without the use of pumps or switches where plants can be left unattended for weeks.
It comprises four 15-litre pots and 47-litre reservoir designed for growing almost all plants and includes: 1x 47-litre reservoir with lid & 9mm top hat grommet, 1x 9mm golf filter, 4x 9mm tee. 2x 9mm cross connector, 2x 9mm inline taps, 4x 1-Pot trays & lids, 4x 15-litre pots, 4x ‘AQUAvalves’, 4x Root control discs, 4x Marix discs, 1x 4-metre length of 9mm pipe.
Simple cultivation in coconut, soil or hydra is ensured by a special ‘AQUAvalve’ that is connected to the reservoir which opens automatically when low. The tray under the pot is filled with water to a height of 20mm and until the plants consume water, and the ‘AQUAvalve’ valve remains closed. When the plants consume all the water from the tray, the valve opens automatically and refills it.
‘Substrates’ recommendations at a 50/50 ratio: Coconut + Perlite mixture / Coconut + Ceramic mixture / Rockwool + Ceramic / Soil + Ceramic mixture / Soil + Perlite mixture
- Easy to use for gardeners and growers of all abilities. Grow any crop varieties, edible or ornamental. Grow in typical hydroponic substrates having the advantages of soil-less cultivation, or in coconut, rockwool or soil. Can be used indoors and out, in Greenhouses, gardens, home or apartment.
- No power, timers or mains water pressure required. Simply gravity fed from a tank or water barrel.
- Saves water. No over watering. The plants only take what they need. No more daily watering. Can be left unattended for weeks. Operates within water restriction guidelines. Extra pots can be added. Extremely low maintenance.
- Ideal for use in schools. Less time watering. Plants remain watered over the holidays. A common problem in horticultural projects in schools is that plants that have been well tendered during the school term perish over the holidays. Health and safety regulations for school projects are easily met as the system requires no electricity or pumps.
