I'm excited to follow this! I've been debating auto pots for a while.

What prompted you to do coco/hydroton vs coco/perlite?
Worker in grow shop reccomended me to try it. And this about my 4th grow with autopots, i used to hand feed but not around all time so went for autopots.

Auto pots are now turned on.
47litre res filled up.
I always ph 5.7 in the rez because i find every few days it rises by .1-.2.
By time gets to 6.4 ive changed rez again.

Quick snap lights off net say 90% full
Ec will be kept relatively low all way threw flower as autopots is bottom feeding.

Are you worried about salt build up, hence the lower PPM?

I've been thinking about how to properly flush this system, and it seems like you'd need to do a res change and just run plain water.

Yeh salt build up can happen as not getting run off.. therefore i keep ppm relatively low throughout. Been good so far. Lot easier than hand feeding to.

And yeh when you get to flush u jus fill rez with water for how ever long you wana flush

Wow!!! This is just what the Dr. ordered. I just received three autopots 3.9 gallon pots. These are in my 2.5'x5' grow tent. I have two in line duct fans with filters, one intake, one exhaust. I have the humidifier, a co2 canister, tent heater and a new high power air pump to supply air to the bubblers in the pots. I am waiting till next month before I can order the Spider Farms sf4000 LED fixture. This is my first time planting in this new system. I was excited to read that you are using the autopots and will be following your thread.
My 3x3' tent has two huge Girl Scout Cookies ready to harvest, when done harvesting I will put two hydrobuckets in there from Vivoson. I will most likely put three Godfather plants in the autopot system. I have all Advanced Nutrients and have advice from them as to supplements and have been collecting all for the last two months. As a disabled vet I have to budget as I only get paid once a month from the VA. I have an old phototron that I installed an LED grow light and two in line fans and humidifier and the one plant I have in there went nuts. I have to keep trimming and topping as it has reached the top of the unit and will try to get it into flowering stage soon as I can't let it get any taller. This is the first Godfather plant and it really took off so I will put three in the autopot system.
Well, can't wait to read all your posts so I can learn how your system worked.
Thanks for the info, hope I didn't bore you to death.
