[Support request] Root bound – can I do better?

  • May 30, 2023 at 12:09 pm #1217

    I recently finished my first full auto-pot grow in coco with and overall very pleased with the growth and yield. After harvest I carefully studied the root zone during the breakdown and cleanup. The bottom of the 3 gal pot was total root-bound-town but every root looked healthy and white thanks largely to the genius of the air dome.

    The bottom 2-3 inches of the medium and the entire air dome was a solid mass of roots but the 10 inches of medium above the dome had far less root density. I estimated 20% of the root mass was in the top 2/3rds and 80% in the bottom 1/3.

    What can I do to encourage roots to grow more evenly through all the available medium?

    Hi There….. This is how AutoPot works…. don’t worry as the top section becomes an air root zone…. cheers Josh
