    Hi, Ive been looking at an Aero-Pot Propagator, 7 x pot Portable Aeroponic Grow System on ebay:

    NEW Aero-Pot Propagator 7 x pot Portable Aeroponic GrowSystem

    I am thinking of buying one - it uses nutrient mist, is cheap and looks ideal for what I need, can anyone give me any feedback on this system please?
    Many Thanks

    Only had it 6 months, but so far have had 100% success, no yellowing and they are ready in 7-8 days.

    I am using it (as per instructions) to germ some beans as we speak, it's the first time I have tried it this way, but I am that impressed with how the clones responded that I am pretty sure it'll do a good job with the seeds.

    I have them in root riots in it, & already I can tell its keeping them a lot moister, with less attention, than any other way I have tried.

    looks good but with that big dome you'll have to use a mh or hps light because the light might be to far away from smaller plants.
    and if it feeds useing mist that glass will get very durty very quick. but i've never used one so dont no if there any good.

    The principal behind it is very good. Aeroponics, great for rooting clones.

    Never really used one, there is another thread out there about them. You apparently can make one just as cheap yourself.

    I used an Xstream 12 pot aeroponic propigator to along with root riot cubes not rockwool they just drown seedlings, didnt add any nutes, all the seedlings were able to transplant within 8 days, they are now sitting pretty in my Amazon aeroponic system. Growth (foliage and roots) is explosive to say the least. BTW I am a noob grower and so far so good. Hope this helps good luck.

    Just make your own mate. Dead easy and cheap as chips!
    I made a sprinkler aero thing for propagating. The local shop sells a head like a mini garden sprinkler for about 4, rotates quickly under the water pressure from a small pump and throws the nutes a good 5/6". I got a 20l square bucket, a piece of corex and 4 5" mesh pots. Cut the corex so the net pots lay flush. Mount the pump and sprinkler dead center in the bucket and youve got a cracking aero set up that grows a serious beard going in a few days! The roots will soon hit the nutes, add an air pump and its a dwc hybrid too!
    I put seeds or clones in peat pellets, then filled the mesh pots with clay pebbles. Once the beard is healthy they can be transplanted easily into any system you choose.
    Will post up pics later, you can have much the same idea for a fraction of the price!

    currently i use rockwool 1" cubes to propagate then into 4" cubes once rooted and into my flood and drain table with hydroton, with this could i just use the hydroton in the net baskets then once rooted straight into the flood and drain table, purely to get rid of the rockwool in my systems, or is it best to use rockwool, ideally id like to get rid of rockwool all together and just use hydroton if thats possible, then once they have rooted just pull the roots back through the net pot and just bare plant going into the flood and drain, if that makes sense!

    Yeah mate, ditch the rockwool.i feckin hate it can easily be overwatered.
    Peat pellets first, great starting media.
    Then mesh pots and hydroton.
    Just leave them in the mesh pots and put them into your next system. Pulling the young plant out will only damage the roots and stress it.
    Ive seen strong roots split the net pots, they will not restrict the plant!

    Here's my wee home made yoke!

    Best thing budweiser ever made!

    The pump and sprinkler.

    With the pump on, look closely you can see the spray.

    I need to make a new top, that ones getting a bit rough!

    This costs less than 20 and gives great results.

    Wtf goes on when uploading pics, only sometimes i get a full size pic most of the time a thumbnail and linked image!

    Hi mate I've bought one myself and in the instructions it says to use clay pebbles but I couldn't get the clones stable in them so used soil plugs, they fit perfectly in the pots and the clones are set well my only concern is that the soil is saturated and really wet is this going to effect the clones rooting? How do you go about it?

    LOls trust me man they will be fine just make sure the soil is damp not wet till the roots get through

    I hadnt realised you have only just taken the clones so its going to be some days before the roots come through its still not a problem but just switch it on when the soil feels dry it only needs to be damp.

    But I have used a similar setup with great success I know you are worried but relax man all will be well
    And dont worry if the clones start looking bad in the next few days its par for the course before they look better

    Thanks for your advise! The soil was saturated so I've got the excess water of so its now just damp and turned the mister upside down in the water so there's now no mist but its still heating the propergator, once the roots show then ill turn the mister right way back up!

    How are you getting on with the aeropot? I found it saturated the soil too much so I've turned the mister upside down until the roots show, I had to use soil pods as they just wouldn't stand up in the pebbles.
