Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt
Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt fits an Autopot XL tray and allows you to combine power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, modular systems with high performance fabric pots. Flexipots stimulate plant growth by aerating, feeding and guiding the root structure rather than merely containing it.
The porous BPA-free, lead-free Flexipot material allows improved gas exchange in the substrate. Free to breathe, the root zone will see dramatically enhanced oxygen levels that supercharges growth.
When root tips reach the porous side of a Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt, they are ‘air-pruned’ (deterred 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 thus also eliminated, making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.
Extremely durable and reusable, the Flexipots are easily cleaned between uses if required. Once emptied, the Flexipots 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 Flexipot may be machine or tub washed in a peroxide solution, in order to sterilize. Do not put Flexipots in a tumble dryer.
When growing in Autopot Watering Systems, it is essential that a Flexipot Potsock (Potsock not included with a replacement Flexipot) be fitted to the base of each Flexipot to provide root control.
Room humidity may be higher than using traditional plactic pots, when growing with multiple Flexipots indoors, due to the porous, airy material of the fabric pots.
