The AutoPot GeoPot System combines our power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, modular systems with high performance G Lite fabric pots from GeoPot for the first time. Available in either a 3 gallon or 5 gallon size, you can pick which size fabric pot you want to use in your AutoPot GeoPot System!
Fabric pots stimulate plant growth by aerating, feeding and guiding the root structure rather than merely containing it.
The porous BPA-free, lead-free fabric pot material allows improved gas exchange in the substrate. Free to breathe the root zone can see dramatically enhanced oxygen levels – supercharging growth.
When root tips reach the porous side of a fabric pot, they are ‘air-pruned’ – deterred from extending any further by the air outside. Secondary roots then develop, creating a fibrous root structure with vastly improved moisture and nutrient uptake. Root circling is also thus eliminated making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.
Extremely durable and reusable the G Lite Pots by GeoPot are easily cleaned between uses if desired. Once emptied, they are best left to dry. After a few days any dust and small roots are easily brushed off. Whilst this level of cleaning is completely sufficient the fabric pot may be machine or tub washed in peroxide in order to sterilize. Do not put fabric pots in a tumble dryer.
A GeoPot XL System contains all you need to set up an automated watering system with fabric pots. The compact size and portability that GeoPot brings to XL means jaw-dropping reductions in shipping costs and much easier storage for stores and growers alike.
As with all of our systems the GeoPot System is easily extended so many pots can be linked to a single reservoir. The pots and trays can be easily moved at will, if the plants grow too large they can be spaced further apart with ease. Once set up with a water and nutrient filled reservoir this extremely versatile, gravity-fed system will run automatically. It will completely take care of all your plants needs without the need for pumps, timers or intensive maintenance.
When growing in AutoPot Watering Systems it is essential that a PotSock Round (PotSock included) be fitted to the base of each GeoPot to provide root control.
Please note: Room humidity may be increased when growing with multiple fabric pots indoors due to the exposed, porous surface of the fabric pots.
Which FlexiTank Reservoir Filter Should You Choose?
Pro Filter Vs Standard Filter
The Pro Filter Click Fit Tank Adapter and Filter is designed to be used with all sizes of FlexiTank and FlexiTank Pro. It introduces growers everywhere to the levels of adjustability and customization favored by commercial facilities. Different filter inserts can be used providing the grower with different micron options depending on their growing demands and it comes with a 120 micron filter. Whilst professional growers demand precision they also require products that are durable, reliable and easy to maintain. The Pro Filter was designed with these qualities in mind. The Pro Filter has a larger, drum-shaped filter area and a higher micron element for added protection against blockages. Its larger size makes dismantling and cleaning simple.
The Standard Click Fit Tank Adapter and Filter is designed to be used with all sizes of FlexiTank and FlexiTank Pro. It comes with a 70 micron filter. It is simply pushed onto the tap provided. It has a 1/2″ filter incorporated along its length to filter the water before it travels along the pipes. This fitting allows the user to push 1/2″ pipe onto the male end of the adapter. The filter is easily disassembled and cleaned.
If you do not want to use a drainage layer of clay pebbles, hydroton or perlite No3 at the bottom of your pot, consider adding AirBases.
If you want to add extra oxygen to your root zone, consider adding AirDomes.
If you need added root protection for aggressively rooting plants, consider using a Drawstring Potsock.
