The AutoPot XL is a fully automated, low maintenance, watering system that's the same as the Standard AutoPot system by using an AQUAvalve, rather than pumps & timers, to gravity feed your plants, the only difference is the XL uses 25 litre pots, instead of 15.
When you first set up your AutoPot system and fill the reservoir with your nutrient solution, the AQUAvalve will open, the solution will then run into the trays of the pots, when it reaches the preset level of 20mm, the AQUAvalve will close, stopping the flow of nutrients.
As this solution is absorbed by the plants, the AQUAvalve will not open to replenish the nutrient level in the tray until its all been used, meaning your plants can be grown in a wet and dry cycle allowing them to thrive.
The AutoPot XL system is also extremely flexible as it can easily be extended to double, triple or even quadruple the number of pots that can be fed from just 1 tank, but can also be moved around as your plants grow, giving them more room to blossom making this a versatile way of growing.
A free draining substrate such as soil, coco or a 50/50 soil or coco mix with clay pebbles or perlite can be used, but whichever substrate you choose, make sure its absorbent, light, fluffy and free draining in order for you to get the most out of the AutoPot grow system.
