The AutoPot Spring Pot System combines our power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, modular systems with high performance fabric pots for the first time. Spring Pots stimulate plant growth by aerating, feeding and guiding the root structure rather than merely containing it.
The porous BPA-free, lead-free Spring Pot material allows improved gas exchange in the substrate. Free to breathe the root zone can see dramatically enhanced oxygen levels – supercharging growth.
When root tips reach the porous side of a Spring Pot they are ‘air-pruned’ – detered from extending any further by the air outside. Secondary roots then develop, creating a fibrous root structure with vastly improved moisture and nutrient uptake. Root circling is also thus eliminated making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.
Extremely durable and reusable the Spring Pots are easily cleaned betwen uses if desired. Once emptied the Spring Pots are best left to dry. After a few days any dust and small roots are easily brushed off. Whilst this level of cleaning is completely sufficient the Spring Pot may be machine or tub washed in peroxide in order to sterilize. Do not put Spring Pots in a tumble dryer.
A Spring Pot XL System contains all you need to set up an automated watering system with fabric pots. The compact size and portability that Spring Pot brings to XL means jaw-dropping reductions in shipping costs and much easier storage for stores and growers alike.
As with all of our systems the Spring Pot System is easily extended so many pots can be linked to a single reservoir. The pots and trays can be easily moved at will, if the plants grow too large they can be spaced further apart with ease. Once set up with a water and nutrient filled reservoir this extremely versatile, gravity-fed system will run automatically. It will completely take care of all your plants needs without the need for pumps, timers or intensive maintenance.
When growing in AutoPot Watering Systems it is essential that a PotSock Round (PotSock included) be fitted to the base of each Spring Pot to provide root control.
Spring Pot Module includes:
1x XL tray & lid
1x 5 gal Spring Pot
1x 3/8″ tee connector
1x 3.3ft length of 3/8″ pipe
1x PotSock Round
All AutoPot USA modules are now equipped with the new AQUAvalve5 (gray/black with black collar), which requires 3/8″ tubing/fittings. If you have the AQUAvalve4 (black with red collar) and need assistance in expanding your system with 1/4″ tubing/fittings, please contact us.
