So I am getting ready to try autopots for the first time. I have a couple questions for you guys.
I have two of the one pot xl version with the aqua 5 valve.
The first issue that I have is that my 2x4 Mars hydro tent’s lowest access port is 28 inches from the bottom so, running the lines is going to be an issue. The simplest solution is to close the zippers around the bottom corner and that should work well enough. My only other option would be trying to put a rivet and then grommet into the bottom corner of the tent.
My second question is whether I need to get any different additives right now I use Jack’s 321 and my additives are botanica silica blast, tribus, New millennium Ruby fulvic, tribus, and lumina that I use just to get the pH down if I need to. Do I need to change anything or have a different product to keep the reservoir stable and clean?
I have some recharge and I know that’s a bad idea to put that in the reservoir but from what I’ve read I can add that directly to the bottom of the pot. What I haven’t been able to find out is how much to use if doing it that way.
I’ve seen some grows where people have a valve for each pot. I’d like to avoid any extra connections if I can, just more opportunities for leaks but if it’s necessary I’ll add them. It’s only going to be two plants so I should just go without them is my plan.
This is the way I am planning to orient the pots with one sideways to have less bends in the feed line and less line used overall and less I’ll have to clean out.
Any suggestions are recommendations are welcome!
