Sale price£60.00

The AutoPot Tray2Grow Bed System is a new, low-maintenance way to grow with living soil. This Tray2Grow package we offer is assembled specifically for use with a Grassroots 1x3 bed, or pots of your choice, it does not come with seed trays or grow bag spikes.

With the Autopot Tray2Grow, water is automatically drawn up from the tray into the soil through capillary action as and when it’s required. The Tray2Grow is connected to an external reservoir while multiple trays can be seamlessly connected together. Each system is ideal for a 60x120cm growing area.

This innovative irrigation solution is perfect for growers who want to reap the benefits of growing in an efficiently sized bed while benefiting from the convenience of an automatic watering system. The result provides consistent soil moisture leading to optimal microbial activity and nutrient assimilation. Ideal for gardeners new to living soil, or experienced growers looking to upgrade their setup.

Key Features:

AutoPot Irrigation Technology: Watering is driven by the plants’ needs, eliminating the stress and risk of over or under-watering.

Fully Automated and Electricity-Free: Hands-off watering without relying on power.

Incredible Versatility: Ideal for a Grassroots 1x3 bed but can also be used for seed trays, small pots, grow bags, and microgreens!

Tray2Grow comes equipped with three inset spirit levels to ensure everything is set up correctly. (It’s important to use these to ensure the tray is level for consistent and even automatic irrigation.)

How the AutoPot AquaValve Works:

Gravity-Fed System: The AquaValve is designed to be used in a gravity-fed system, meaning it does not require electricity or pumps. It is connected to a reservoir of nutrient-rich water.

Pressure and Float Mechanism: The valve works using a combination of pressure and a float mechanism. When the water level in the growing tray drops, the float inside the AquaValve descends, opening the valve. This allows water from the reservoir to flow into the tray.

Self-Regulating: As the water fills the tray and reaches a pre-set level, the float within the AquaValve rises, closing the valve. This stops the flow of water into the tray. The set level is typically around 20mm, which is enough water to wet the whole capillary mat without leaving it submerged in water.

Passive Feeding: This system is a form of passive plant feeding, where the plants draw up water as needed through their roots. Once the water in the tray is used up by the plants, the float in the AquaValve drops again, opening the valve, and the cycle repeats. This ensures a consistent and controlled delivery of water.

Prevents Overwatering: By allowing the plants to use the soil moisture before refilling the tray, the AquaValve encourages the roots to grow down in search of moisture, fostering a strong and healthy root system. This cycle also ensures that water is not constantly at the bottom of the tray, preventing overwatering and associated issues like root rot.
