AutoPot 1 Pot XL Module
See the results of your favourite AutoPot on a giant scale. This automatic feeding system detects when your plants need food and supplies the perfect amount.
The larger 25L pot provides even greater room for healthy, vigorous growth.
Grow even bigger
This super-sized system is a larger version of the 15L AutoPot 1 Pot Module. Even your largest plants can thrive unattended with this revolutionary technology.
Connect multiple XL AutoPots, or attach them to a reservoir such as a FlexiTank, for a hands-free and scalable feeding routine.
Never over- or under-feeds
AutoPot leads with innovation. Its AQUAvalve technology makes feeding easier, cheaper, more environmentally friendly, and more accurate - what more does a grower need?
The technology works by gravity feeding from a larger reservoir such as the FlexiTank. The AQUAvalve sits in the centre of your AutoPot 1 Pot XL system and fills with up to 20mm of nutrient solution. Once the 20mm has been distributed, a unique float valve system creates an airlock which prevents any more solution from entering the valve. The Aquavalve then allows your plants to drink all of this nutrient solution - so it’ll never overflow or overfeed.
Once your plants have absorbed this 20mm of nutrient solution, the airlock in the AQUAvalve is broken and it distributes another 20mm of fresh nutrient solution into the valve ready for feeding.
Then, the cycle continues, with no input from the grower except for making sure that the reservoir is full. And with FlexiTanks as large as 1000L, that’s hardly a regular job.
No electricity, no pumps, no timers
The greatest benefit of the AutoPot system is that you can leave it to do all the hard work! In close second is the fact that it costs nothing to run.
The AutoPot needs no electricity, no pumps, and no timers and can be left safely for as long as the reservoir contains nutrient solution. There’s no risk of it malfunctioning should you lose power, and you’ll have no energy bill. That’s music to a grower’s ears!
Easy to scale
AutoPot brings easy feeding to any grow room, no matter its size. Once you have the 1 Pot XL Module and a tank, you’ll only need additional modules and accessories to scale your growing system to any size.
The 1 Pot XL Module is perfect for those wanting low maintenance of one large plant. However, a larger system may be more suitable if you’re expanding your garden. Check out the AutoPot XL Multiple Pot Systems - they come with everything you need for up to 100 pots!
How to use the AutoPot 1 Pot XL Module?
AutoPots feed from underneath. Because of this, they require a highly absorbent substrate to draw nutrient solution from below and distribute it evenly around the root system.
We recommend that you use an aerated substrate mix with the AutoPot, such as a 50/50 coco or perlite blend. For best results, put an inch of clean, buffered perlite or clay pebbles at the bottom of your AutoPot. This will achieve maximum aeration and deliver nutrient solution most evenly to the plant. It also helps with drainage.
You can place plants in the AutoPot system at any stage of growth, but it’s recommended that you hand-water them until their roots are fully established. This should take approximately 10-14 days.
Before potting your plants, place the Root Control Disc into the base of the pot, gold face down. This prevents your roots from growing out of the bottom and sides of the pot and blocking the feeding system.
Once you’ve hand-watered for 10-14 days (or you’re using established plants), it’s time to start!
Remove the red collar from your AQUAvalve. Thread one end of the tubing through the collar and onto the AQUAvalve nozzle. Re-tighten (but do not over-tighten) the collar.
Place the AQUAvalve in the tray and “click” it into place over the T-section on the base of the tray. This will prevent the AQUAvalve from floating once liquid enters the tray. Place the lid over the AQUAvalve and tray.
Next, you’ll need to connect your pot to a source of nutrient solution. You can use an AutoPot FlexiTank, which is designed for use with the AutoPot Modules, or a reservoir of your choice with a capacity of up to 47L. Position your tank at least 15cm above your AQUAvalve.
If using your own tank, you will need to drill a hole approximately 6mm in diameter near the bottom (not the base) to feed your tubing and nutrient solution through.
Feed the loose end of the tubing through the hole and grommet on the outside of your tank. You will need a golf filter to secure the tubing in place from the inside of the tank.
The FlexiTank has a built-in tap to control the flow of nutrient solution. If you are not using a FlexiTank, you will need to install the AutoPot 9mm In-Line Tap. Cut your tubing a few inches away from the tank and grommet outlet. Attach your tap between each end of the tubing.
Finally, you may place your XL pot in the AQUAvalve tray. Fill your tank with nutrient solution and turn on the tap to begin watering.
How to clean and maintain the AutoPot 1 Pot XL Module?
Check and clean all components of the AutoPot regularly. Flush a cleaning solution through at the beginning and end of every plant cycle.
Once every 2 weeks, drain 1-2L of solution from your AutoPot by opening the tap at the end of each line. This is to help prevent sediment buildup and reduce the risk of blockages.
Before and after cleaning your AQUAvalves, remove the 2 silicon bungs. Squash them between your fingers and reinsert.
Keep your nutrient solution clean and well-mixed at all times. We also recommend that you avoid sticky solutions, such as seaweed extracts - these can build up in the AutoPot system.
Keep your plants on a well-insulated surface to prevent them from becoming too cold. Stone and concrete floors can become extremely cold and send your plants into shock. If you don’t have a work surface or an insulated floor, place your pots on upturned plastic trays to conserve heat.
Where to use AutoPot 1 Pot XL Module?
You can place your AutoPot system anywhere! It’s suitable for both indoor and outdoor growing - use it in your garden, greenhouse, shed, grow tent, or hydroponic grow room.
The 1 Pot XL Module is a great option for those with limited space. It will fit in spaces just over 1m2, making it great for small gardens, patios, and smaller grow tents.
