Note: This item is a single 18.9L (5 gal) SMARTpot.
The AutoPot SmartPot 18.9L fits an AutoPot XL tray and allows you to combine our power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, modular systems with high performance fabric pots for the first time. SmartPots stimulate plant growth by aerating, feeding and guiding the root structure rather than merely containing it.
The porous BPA-free, lead-free SmartPot 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 SmartPot they are ‘air-pruned’ – detered 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 SmartPots are easily cleaned betwen uses if desired. Once emptied the SmartPots 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 SmartPot may be machine or tub washed in peroxide in order to sterilize.
Do not put SmartPots in a tumble dryer.When growing in AutoPot Watering Systems it is essential that a PotSock Round (PotSock not included) be fitted to the base of each SmartPot to provide root control.Room humidity may be increased when growing with multiple SmartPots indoors due to the exposed surface of the fabric pots.
