When you are choosing pots and trays for your hydroponic system, here are a few of the different types to consider:
Standard Plant Container with Saucer
A standard style of plant pot will usually have a hole at the bottom for drainage as well as a saucer to catch the water. This is the classic choice and is a simple and easy option.
These are a style of fabric container and they have a number of advantages, including providing more oxygen to the roots. They will prevent plants from getting “root-bound” and they will prevent you from overwatering your plants. If you choose this option you might need an extra-large saucer or a tray to capture the runoff water.
This style of pot allows more oxygen to reach the roots. Although water seeps out the sides when you are watering the plant, the air pot is tall and thin so you will still be able to use a regular size saucer for the container.
These are fold-flat growing pots that are made from recycled materials and they have excellent air-pruning properties and help to increase root mass – which means that your plants will be able to eat more and grow more.
If you are looking for a convenient way to keep your plants hydrated, perhaps an AutoPot system is the answer. This is a system of separate growing pots that are connected to an automatic watering network. It is designed to distribute water and feed exactly when your plants need them, without the need for a pump or a timer. The set up will save you a lot of time, effort and money because it is so much easier to maintain.
