1Pot is a modular AutoPot Watering System that enables household gardeners and commercial growers alike to achieve incredible yields from their plants.
Whether in the home, the garden, the greenhouse or poly-tunnel, the 1Pot will extend to create a system of unlimited scale thanks to its modular design. 1Pot Systems are flexible even when set up and modules can be moved to suit the changing needs of the grower and their plants.
As with all AutoPot Watering Systems 1Pot utilizes AQUAvalve technology for simple, efficient, low maintenance feeding and watering of edible or ornamental plants.
Once assembled the reservoir is filled with water and liquid fertilizer (if required). The 1Pot System will completely take care of all your plant’s feeding requirements, providing them with fresh, balanced feed throughout their entire life cycle.
Simplicity of design and electricity-free, automated feeding make impressive plants possible even for beginners. For experienced growers that same simplicity means minimal overheads, reliability and maximum scope for applying and measuring the successes of advanced growing techniques.
The 1Pot System is extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of plant types and sizes. Seasonal flowering plants and perennial shrubs thrive and produce an abundance of blooms and foliage because of the unique action of the AQUAvalve, which is designed to allow the plant to go through a wet & dry cycle.
The 1Pot System is easily extended so many pots can be linked to a single reservoir. The pots & trays can be easily moved at will, and if the plants grow too large they can be spaced further apart with ease. Once setup and the reservoir is filled with water & nutrients this extremely versatile system will completely take care of all your plants needs.
Building Your AutoPot System:
Step #1 - Choose your pot size
Choose from either 2.2 gal or 3.9 gal, depending on the size of the plant you will be growing. Choose the smaller pot for smaller plants such as lettuce and most herbs. Choose the larger pot for larger plants such as squash, tomatoes, etc.
Step #2 - Choose your growing medium
Although we highly recommend a 50/50 mix of coco/perlite (which you can purchase pre-mixed or individually) you can also use a mix of soil/clay pebbles (e.g. Hydroton), coco/clay pebbles or rockwool Grocubes. It is also advisable to add a thin layer of perlite at the bottom of each pot before adding your 50/50 mix of choice.
*One 50 liter bag of growing medium will fill approximately 14x 2.2 gal pots or 7x 3.9 gal pots.
*One 1 cubic foot bag of perlite will cover the bottom inch of approx. 12x 2.2 or 3.9 gal pots.
Step #3 - Optional - choose your accessories
The AirDome Kit is a great way to increase growth rate and size. Attach the AirDome to an air pump using 3/16" ID tubing and watch your plants' root system take off with explosive growth due to the added oxygen.
The Reservoir Stand is both attractive and allows the reservoir to drain completely. If you do not purchase a stand you can simply place the reservoir on the ground next to the 1Pot tray(s).
Step #4 - Expand your growing system
Add additional plant sites to your system simply by adding additional 1Pot Extension Kits (and growing medium, if necessary). Or mix & match with easy2grow or 1Pot XL Extension Kits.
