I’ve been looking at Autopots and don’t see a lot of info here . Has anyone used them with soil and how did it workout . Lots of info on Octopots but they are too costly to get in Canada .
I looked, but I didn’t find a distributor here.
Most of the ‘bright ideas’ I had were ‘frowned on’ in the user manual too.
Im not sure what you mean Gpaw . No problem finding Autopots where I live . I can order them with free shipping or buy them near by if they were open . Actually its cheaper online . I guess you haven’t used them ?
No, I got interested through reading @Jetdro and @Grohio threads on them but came up empty handed when I looked for local distys.
That, and I’m not in a position where I could switch over for a few months, so there wasn’t great urgency.
Where did you find them if I may ask?
I’m confusing octopots and autopots…
No problem . Same threads got me interested . If you mean where did I find Autopots . www.indoorgrowingcanada.com . Also Provision carries them in Ontario . I have a feeling though your after the Octopots and I don’t know of a Canadian distributor .
Ive been checking out the autopots as well. They even have a autopot setup that uses fabric pots too.
I believe those recommend coco/perlite?
Coco wicks moisture fairly evenly and I believe that’s why it’s recommended, perhaps you could select a coco and perlite based soil? Or blend your own?
I saw that but at least where I was looking it was more costly for the fabric pots .
I looked at the auto pots the look interesting there’s a few moving parts that require some maintenance
I was able to get Octopots here in the US they are on sale now not to sure about shipping to Canada
Yes . Was hoping someone had tried some soil mixes in Autopots . I just started mixing and reusing soil . Still learning .
