I would like to speak to someone about using the Autopot system for a commercial operation. Also need a budgetary estimate. Ps: Your security codes are impossible to decipher with the eyesight of a mere mortal! - Posted by Willem Ellis

Rockwool is available in 1/4 inch chunks. Is there a reason to mix with hydroton? - Posted by John White

Hi John, Yes, the reason is that Hydroton alone does not provide enough capillary action to be used in the AutoPot. The Rockwool cubes provide the capillary action that Hydroton lacks.

Hi. I was wondering if AutoPots could be grown, say in the storage compartments of a Bus Conversion or Motorhome? Or, could they be put in the living area in a Bus Conversion? - Posted by Rebecca Koos

Question re: lettuce: Do you recommend or do you have a system specifically for lettuce or other leafy greens? The reason I ask is because the pots seem huge for leafy greens(though I am new and can be totally wrong. I've grown in rails before and clearly, they aren't as large). Thank you in advance for your help and support. Sinc, -g. - Posted by Gabriel

Hi Gabriel, The easy2grow system is ideal for growing lettuce. Thanks, Josh

Hi, I bought a 4 pot xl system w the flex tank reservoir locally and am wondering if the root control discs are supposed to be included? I'm not noticing them in the box. Thanks. - Posted by Jay

Hi Jay, The root control discs should be included, please go back to shop and query this with them. If you have a look at the online shop, each product has a list of what the system comes with. Thanks, Josh
