Self Watering Pot - Trough 40x18cm

6 reviews
Combo Kit Growth Mediums
  • The Megapot is a mess-free hydroponic growing pot that uses up to 90% less water than conventional soil pots. This means that you spend far less time watering your plants every time they dry up, freeing you up to leave your plants unattended for significant periods of time.

    By growing hydroponically you have the ability to use Hydroponic nutrients to provide the perfect blend of macro and micronutrients for plant growth. The pots can be used in conjunction with our EasyGro and BreezyGro lights to form a complete growing system that can be done completely indoors.

    You can choose to buy this product with Smart Soil or Expanded Clay

  • Growing Mediums

    Smart Soil

    Smart soil can be used for germinating and growing plants from seed, or transplanting propagated plants. It’s main features are:
    • High water retention
    • Low Oxygen retention
    • Moderate physical support for plants

    Expanded clay

    Expanded clay does not hold any water, so if you plant seeds on it they won't grow. Expanded clay is awesome for growing plants that already have an existing root system - making it a great medium for propagations and transplants. It’s main features are:
    • Low water retention
    • Moderate Oxygen retention
    • High physical support for plants

  • Instructions

    The Megapot has an internal and external pot. The internal pot holds the growing medium, while the external pot allows for water storage without flooding your plants.

    Growing in Smart Soil

    1. Fill the Megapot with smart soil.
    2. Add water until the water level indicator is 1cm from its maximum position.
    3. Add seeds and bury them as per seed specifications (read seed sachet). Sprinkle water over the top to activate the seeds.
    4. Place pot in an appropriate place (Under a grow light, or in the sun).
    5. Refill water when the indicator gets low. Add 5-10mL of nutrients per 1L of water and make sure to mix it in until its dissolved. Don't overfill water.

    Growing in Expanded Clay

    1. Add a thin layer of expanded clay to the bottom of your pot.
    2. Place plant roots over the expanded clay, and add expanded clay around the plant to hold it in place.
    3. Mix 5-10 mL of nutrients with 1L of water and add the solution to the pot until the water level indicator is 1cm from its maximum position.
    4. Place pot in an appropriate place (Under a grow light, or in the sun).
    5. Refill water when the indicator shows low water levels. Add 1 scoop of nutrients per 1L of water and make sure to mix it in until its dissolved. Don't overfill water.

    Love this pot, I transplanted some basil and now have it growing effortlessly in my kitchen. Gorgeous looking pot, self watering so I only need to refill once a fortnight. I will be buying more for my kitchen!

    Mega Pot

    Delivery and service was good value. I have now sewn my rocket seeds in the Mega Pot and have followed the instructions religiously. After a week, the rocket is small, healthy and growing day by day. Very pleased with Urban Plant Growers and plan to purchase more pots in the near future.
