Grow what you want, when you want, whilst still enjoying the incredible space and maintenance saving benefits of a tray system. Auto8 2.2gal comes complete with eight 2.2gal square pots but can also house the 3.9gal variety – available separately. You can interchange at will – no adjustment to the tray is required.
You can cultivate plants at various stages of development in the same tray system. Swap plants in and out with ease as needed. Minimise repotting and the risk of transplant shock.
The principles of Auto9 XL also apply to Auto8. Multiple pots are irrigated in a single tray and lid assembly by a single AQUAvalve5. Footprint is reduced. Fewer lights are needed for more tightly arranged plants. Vertical racking becomes a viable option thanks to reduced maintenance.
Auto8 2.2gal is supplied with eight 2.2gal solid pots.
Cultivating with Auto8 benefits growers in three key areas:
- Maximises the available area
- Ideal for moveable racks and rolling tables
- Draws no more water than 8 single 1Pot trays
- Reduction in components = reduced maintenance duties
- Unlike a large, single, flat tray the moulded base minimises standing water
- Lid blocks light and debris from entering the tray
