Hi Josh. I am growing chilli and tomato and usually grow in fabric pots with a mix of Coir, Perlite with a little vermicast and biochar in the mix. I was wondering can i use fabric pots in the autopot? Either with an inch of clay beads in the bottom of the pot, and fill the pot around the fabric pot with beads as well, or the pot sitting in the autopot as is?
One more question, is there any issue using another line from the reservoir just for drippers for top watering? Like a dripper ring attached to the autopot water line, switched off after the tap root hits the water in the bottom. Cheers
Hi Iamriff….. We supply the SmartPot systems with fabric pots, please visit the website to see the fabric SmartPots, as AutoPot is bottom fed there is no need to drip from the top of the pot as this will over water the plants.
