Has anyone found any decent, raised run off saucers for small fabric pots? 

I have these, which work, but they are too big and clumsy and also raise the plants by at least 10cm

@psylocin thank you, I'll have a look for them 👍


I use the ones that come with the pots at hard ware and double pot the plant keeps it up enough to not be soaking but i do have mine up on bricks with an extra run off for collection which is still around the same size i like the one your using how many litres do they hold

@jdog they are good, but they're too big and clumsy for my small 2x2 tent. I think they are ac infinity (they were an option on a package deal with my bigger ac infinity tent). Never measured, but I'd guess around 3 ltrs.

@muttsnut is the 2x2 2f 60x60 if so whats it like im wanting to upgrade my micro to one

@jdog hiya, yeah. It was my first tent, unbranded as far as I'm aware.

It's pretty good, although obviously restricted for space. I'm using it through winter as it fits nicely into the hot water cylinder cupboard under the stairs. The only place in the house that stays warm 24/7. Perfect for a micro grow. I'm doing a mini grow of two sherbet queen's in 3 ltr pots just now.

Photo from a week or two ago, but they've stayed pretty tiny.

If I can get my run off catchment sorted better, I'd manage 4 I'm pretty sure.

Ahhh cheers Ive been wanting to see how big they are wanting to swap my clone tent to one to get larger micros going you could always try find a square or rectangle tray and put something like weld mesh on too of it same concept you have just home made so can make it as large or small as need

Ill get some photos of what I have done tomorrow for you when im home hopefully show you what i have done makes it a bit easier as im in a scrog so can move my pot but my run off i empty every afternoon

@jdog yeah, I'm going to look for a square plastic tray that will fit snuggly. And some kind of thick plastic mesh (like the shit you walk across in changing rooms or the like). Then just tilt the tray slightly from the rear, so I can suck out the run of with a turkey baister.

That's the plan anyway.

This is today. I think they were stunted by the cold, before I relocated them

One my brother made is cool we are welders so can make most things he made something similar to this one im using for a micro scrog net frame but he puts his container under so he can pull it out aswell quicker and easier if you can slide it out
