How should you water an Air-Pot properly?
The Air-Pots lend themselves to being automated by either top feed drip systems or flood and drain gardens. Many gardeners have reported great results by adding a consistent feeding system to their garden. Since the Air-Pot
creates such a vigorous root system within the container it will require a little more water to thrive. When given the
right conditions the Air-Pots will outgrow any other container available on the market.
Is it OK to hand water the Air-Pots?
It is OK to hand water the Air-Pots. Air-Pot gardeners who use larger pots with traditional potting soils can hand water without problem,
however if you use smaller containers it is highly recommended to set up a top feed system. Calgrowers can show you how to setup a great
system. Just email us and we will show you how or build a custom system to suit your needs.
Can I use the Air-Pots in an ebb n flow system?
Yes. Simply lower the base of the Air-Pot to maximize water uptake. Many gardeners who fill flood tables with rock are simply putting the Air-Pots on top of the rock bed without a base with great results !
Can I use the Air-Pots outdoors?
Yes! The Air-Pots work great outdoors and in the greenhouse. Many growers in California are using the Air-Pots.
