  1. never grown auto seeds before but thought i'd have a go with winter coming and temps may be easier to manage these are blackberry auto in autopots (25l pots straight in not potted up) around 10 days old maybe a tad over watered, haven't watered now for 2 days waiting for the plants to drink what's there and with being such big pots it's taking a while for them to drink what's there. my fault got cocky. only been fed CannaVega and a little bit of calmag to 1.4ec
  2. This is my first time using autopots and I've come across a massive salt buildup problem to the point where I'm starting to see it appear on top of the coco and my plants are turning pale green/yellow. I think the problem is that since starting on the autopots they have only had one feed of ph'd water (around 3L each from res over 4/5 days) between veg and flower. I'm now on day 27 of flower and my guess is that the salt buildup has caused the ph of my medium to drop and lockout some nutrients. I first noticed a week ago that my plants had started to turn a lighter shade of green and one plant had started to get yellowing fan leaves. I thought this was an N deficiency so I upped the N in my next feed and shit has got way worse, now almost every plant has yellowing fan leaves with some getting rusty blotches spreading from the inside out. I have cleaned out my res and filled it with ph'd water, I'm planning on flushing them for 3/4 days and going from there. Is this the route you would take? If anybody has any experience using autopots how often do u feed just water and what nutes do you use? I'm currently using the full ionic range with the coco base nutes. Any replies would be appreciated. Cheers
  3. Good evening all, I am wondering if someone can be kind enough to advise on how to flush plants when using an auto-pot system? I read on someones article it would damaging to fill the res with plain water and leave them? Many thanks in advance. KR Gunsmoke
  4. I was thinking about using a 8x8 setup with 4 630 cmh gavitas using either 16 autopotxl or a standard 24 pot but am thinking this may be to many I am looking to do a scrog method do you guys think this will be ok or do you think I could make some changes any advice appreciated.

  7. Hi guys, I need some help with my new Autopot setup. Long story short the pH under the pots in the tray is way lower (4,9 ~ 5,4) than the pH of the reservoir tank (5,9) and I think Im having multiple problems because of that. Im using coco Biobizz "Coco Mix", Green House Powder Feeding Hybrids and Mostly Sativa fertz, Cal Mag of Grotek and RO water. The pots are 8,5lts and Im using 3cms of washed clay pebbles in the bottom with coco coir only. The values of my reservoir tank are pH 5,8 ~ 6,0 and EC of 1,2. Before of this I had grow only in soil with tap water and without checking the pH with average results for years. Then I had the money and I wanted to improve so I bought an Apera PC-60 pH/EC combo meter and Autopots (8,5 lts easy2grow kits) and started growing with coco coir. I can see the amazing results of checking pH and EC but I had a lot of problems in this grow and I think Im at 40% of full potential. In fact following the Powder Feeding schedule of Green House I overfert to death some plants. Searching in the forum I discovered then than in a multi feeding setup like Autopots you cant go beyond 1,2 EC. I learned. But my actual problem is that like I said the pH of the tray is lower than the pH of the reservoir. I understand that the "run off pH thing" is not accurate but the problem is that in an Autopot setup you dont have "run off", and I think if you have the pH of the feeding solution under each pot way off than the correct value it will cause problems. Right now my reservoir is pH 6,0 and EC 1,2 but the water under each pot is pH 5,4. How can I grow big and healthy buds with that pH? With soil as substrate Im having the same problem with the autopots (the pH is lower 5,2). What can I do? I flushed the pots and checked the run off and effectively the pH is way off too. I think I can grow like this but my buds are very thin in this moment. Maybe can work if I flush with like 7,0 water until the run off is corrected? I think that the plants will not eat all the nutrients if the water of the tray is pH 5,4. Just in case, I googled the forum and the internet searching for answers and I dont have found nothing than helped me. Thanks in advance.
  8. i have opted to buy an autopot system with 15 litre pots, generally i grow skunky type genetics or medium sized indicas, so they would be around ten weeks ish under 13/11. My question is this, am i going to struggle with coco and clay balls ? could someone please recommend a pre mix that they've used that was reliable and gave good results. i am researching this as i am a half whit when it comes to hydro, grew in coco a couple of times but got an attack of the borg so cleaned out and started again with soil. i will be going with dutch pro coco 2 part base plus pk 13/14 ??? i need help ! thanks in advance peeps
  9.

  12. Hey, lurking for a while but this is my first post! Recently invested in an 8-pot Autopot system with a 100ltr reservoir, will be growing in a 70/30 coco/perlite mix and was looking for some advice on which brand of nutrients to use. I've been eyeing up the Cyco Platinum range or the Canna Coco nutes, but I'm aware Canna also have Hydro nutes. Anyone have any advice or recommendations regarding these or any other nutes? If anyone has grown in Autopots with coco before would definately appreciate you chipping in your 2 cents. Open to all ideas. Thanks guys

  14. Morning all. Does any one have any thing good to say about Autopots? Am about to blow on them, and, well, I'm now reading/hearing some negative stuff. Strike me as a good idea, what does the Cannabis Community think? Thanks.
