Switch To Autopot?

Discussion in 'Coco Coir' started by cluneyboy, Feb 8, 2019.

  1. I'm doing a blue dream grow in coco in a 1.5 gallon pot inside a 3X3X6 tent.
    I didn't think I was going to have issues with 2 feeds/waters a day but I am running in to problems on work days.
    Thinking of transplanting to a 4 gallon autopot.
    I am just not sure about watering from the bottom...good or bad.
    I like the idea of the autopots but will i end up with issues transplanting my rootbound girl into a pot almost 3 times the size?
    Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    As long as it's still vegging transplanting would only benefit it.. If its severely rootbound you might need to loosen the rootball up a bit.

    Bottom feeding is fine if you keep ec low and top feed with run off periodically to rinse excess salts. But I prefer a top fed system with regular runoff in coco. Just my 2c.
