The basic Autopot System consists of a plant , Amaryllis Secrets pot on a membrane in a container. This container has a SmartValve built into it which is fed from a nutrient tank. As the plant , Beware of Toxic Mulch in the pot , Is it Really Teak Wood? Caveat Emptor! (Part Two) uses nutrient the level of nutrient in the Autopot container is maintained by the SmartValve. This means that the plant , Insect Spray Warnings and Healthy Alternatives always has the optimum level of nutrient at its disposal. As the plant , Sunflowers grows and needs more nourishment, the SmartValve opens more frequently to replenish the nutrient supply from the tank.

These results have only been studied using tomatoes, , Teak Umbrella : Add the Final Touch to Your Patio however I have no doubt that the same benefits would apply to virtually any type of plant. , Preparing The Garden For Winter
