I used autopots this summer in my greenhouse, and they proved ideal : my 250-liter tank, sold as a rainwater butt, successfully supplied my ten tomato and two shishitô plants for the two weeks we were away in Japan. Autopots are rather expensive, but seem sturdy and well-designed. I had no valve problems. Next year I plan to double the quantitity I'm using to 24 and branch out into some other Solanaceae like eggplant, physalis and okra. I'd definitely recommend them as an almost effortless way to grow good quality crops.

Thanks for your comments. I think youll be happy with the way they produce eggplants. I grew Japanese eggplants this year and they did quite well. You will need to put up cages or some type of support as with your tomato and pepper plants.

I read your articles about the autopots. It was amazing. I have been trying to find a supplier of the autopots on the internet who shipped worldwide i.e. outside the USA or Uk but of no avail. Please help me to find one. I live in Mauritius. Kind regards. Thank you.

There are two companies that sell Auto Pots. One is in the UK and the other is in Australia. The Australian company is closest to you. My suggestion is to contact them and see if they will ship to you directly. The web site is: I wish you the best of luck and thank you for visiting my blog.
