When growing with soil/coir, roots in pots are starved of oxygen after every watering cycle as they sit in the run-off in saucers. AutoDrain removes run-off fast which prevents rot, increases nutrient uptake and growth and reduces the risk of crop-destroying issues like Pythium. The AutoDrain 6 pot system includes a control pot that collects, holds, then pumps away from the run-off to a drain or bucket for waste or recirculation.
Please note – pots, dripper system kit and reservoir tank are not included in the Autodrain 6 price. These can be bought separately here
