The Smart-valve box is a casing that allows you to locate the Smart-valve in any tray to regulate the water level for your own tray setups. Now you can benefit from the versatility of a wet-dry cycle in any tray and pot configuration you like.
Features of the Smart-valve box; - Smart-valve is encased to reduce debris from potentially fouling the operation of the valve. - Root control mesh at the base of the box allows water to flow in and out, whilst limiting root intrusion to the Smart-valve. - suitable for use with the regular Smart-valve or Mini Smart-valve (note Mini requires an adaptor - please specify when ordering) - Simply place the box in it's location and place a weight over the top to secure in place and let the Smart-valve deliver plant driven feeding and watering!

* Note Smart-valve as pictured not included - price includes box and root mesh only.
* NEW * from the inventor that brought you AutoPot Technology is the Mini Twin Wall Pot.
This twin-wall self watering pot has a miniature smart-valve that allows for a growing module with smaller pot volume.
Ideal for smaller varieties such a smaller orchids, herbs, etc... for placement indoors on a window sill or a table.
The unit itself has an 18cm diameter and 14 cm height. The picture of the "clear" model demonstrates how the outer wall (reservoir) stores the water, whilst the inner compartment (where the plant resides in an inner sleeve) has a different water level regulated by the miniature smart-valve. You can literally see the wet-dry cycle in action!
The reservoir stores 1.2 litres which will be drawn down by the smart-valve after each dry cycle for your plant.
The miniature smart-valve now incorporates adjustable silicon stoppers to always get a perfect seal for the floats!.
Available in a variety of colours (select from the drop down list above).
* Note, we recommend the use of mineral water or the addition of Oxy Plus (Hydrogen peroxide) to the water in the clear model to avoid algae buildup
