When root tips reach the porous side of a Flexipot they are ‘air-pruned’ – deterred from extending any further by the air outside. Secondary roots then develop, creating a fibrous root structure with vastly improved moisture and nutrient uptake. Root circling is also thus eliminated making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.

Extremely durable and reusable the Flexipots are easily cleaned between uses if desired. Once emptied the Flexipots are best left to dry. After a few days any dust and small roots are easily brushed off. Whilst this level of cleaning is completely sufficient the Flexipot may be machine or tub washed in peroxide in order to sterilize. Do not put Flexipots in a tumble dryer.

An Autopot Flexipot Extension Unit AQUAValve5 set contains all you need to set up an automated watering system with fabric pots. The compact size and portability that Flexipot brings means jaw-dropping reductions in shipping costs and much easier storage for stores and growers alike.

As with all of our systems the Flexipot System is easily extended so many pots can be linked to a single reservoir. The pots and trays can be easily moved at will, if the plants grow too large they can be spaced further apart with ease. Once set up with a water and nutrient filled reservoir this extremely versatile, gravity-fed system will run automatically. It will completely take care of all your plants needs without the need for pumps, timers or intensive maintenance.

When growing with AutoPot Flexipot Systems it is essential that a round Flexipot Potsock (included with this product) be fitted around the base of each Flexipot to provide root control.

Please note: Room humidity may be increased when growing with multiple Flexipot indoors due to the exposed, porous surface of the fabric pots.

The benefits of growing in Flexipots are, put simply: Bigger, Faster, Smarter plants.

  • Bigger – Flexipot’s porous fabric sides allow for air pruning which effectively eliminates root circling – giving you bigger plants from smaller pots.
  • Faster – Increased oxygen exchange in the substrate via the porous fabric walls supercharges growth.
  • Smarter – Air pruning cultivates a vastly increased number of secondary feeder roots which in turn increase nutrient and water uptake.
