Hi folks,

What's people's thoughts on using autopots with coco/perlite 70-30

Has anyone here had grow with them I've herd bad things about them and some good things. I'm an experienced grower. Just looking for a basic watering system because I'm over using automatic top feed watering system. I have before done a grow bottom feeding the plants and I just flushed with water once a fortnight and had no problems. So just interested in people's views on the matter. Thanks in advanceΒ

@chickenlizard I have never used them but heard many people get good results. I think coco needs to be fed from the top to prevent salt build up and you should get run off with every feed, which doesn't happen with auto pots. But as I said, many growers have done well with them. Flushing every week or so and keeping the feed low seems to work so give it a shot if you think it'll work for youΒ

@chickenlizard If you want to bottom feed with Coco I would personally recommend making some hempy buckets.Β  Super easy and cheap to make and perfect for Coco grows.Β Β

@chickenlizard I have seen some schematics with fabric pots inside of plastic hempy pot online a few places.Β  Β Pretty cool setup, not sure if it works.Β  Β Basically using plastic pot as the reservoir and wicking up through fabric pots that sits on top of it.Β Β

Heard lots of good reports on Automotive but never used them. I am going 10L hempy buckets when I kick off again because they are simple and effective. Grown a lot in perlite but never in coco, I am reading a lot on it as we speak. It seems if you reduce the EC a bit and flush from the top with run off once a week you should get away with itΒ
