PlantSkirt Complete Kits are available now from AutoPot UK! If you want to get up and running fast with the complete high-yield, low-maintenance solution to growing seriously big plants then we implore you to read on. The PlantSkirt itself has been performing for ambitious growers to w-rapturous acclaim for the past year or so. This heat and light-reflective shield protects your plants and your feeds when growing in large open trays. Why is such protection essential? Glad you asked.
Open garden trays lack the protection to substrate and nutrient solution which is normally afforded by the snug-fitting pots, trays, and lids found on our modules. Secured around the middle of the pot and around the outer rim of a tray, PlantSkirt neatly resolves this issue. It helps maintain stable temperatures in the root zone. Heat and light that would otherwise cause nutrient solution to evaporate is reflected onto the plant to its greater benefit. Invasion by algae or debris is averted. PlantSkirt is now available in Large or Small sizes. The former fitting garden trays of 80cm-100cm sq, the latter serving trays of 60cm sq. They’ve been going down a storm – so what’s new?
We’ve introduced a range of off-the-peg kits containing the PlantSkirt and everything else you need to set up what is effectively a giant AutoPot module. ‘Giant’ meaning they come with a 35 L / 9 gal or 139 L / 37 gal fabric FlexiPot. Obviously the kits have a garden tray matched to the size of PlantSkirt therein. PlantSkirt Complete 60 has the 60cm sq garden tray, a 35 L pot, and PlantSkirt Small. PlantSkirt Complete 80 and 100 have, respectively, the 80cm or 100cm sq garden tray, with a 139 L pot, and a PlantSkirt Large.
All PlantSkirt Complete kits include an AQUAvalve5 and all the necessary 16-9mm and 9mm fittings that make growing with organics or mineral nutrients via your reservoir and pipework an absolute piece of cake. The new AQUAvalve PotSock in the kits provides ample protection from any errant roots and the AQUAvalve Cover keeps the AQUAvalve itself secure on the base of the tray.
We’re looking forward to another season of wild creations in our R&D facilities using PlantSkirt. The FlexiPots included in the Complete Kits really do demonstrate how fabric pots can help make all kinds of big, healthy, fast-developing stock plants a possibility.
