Auto Pot Systems ®Plant Driven Watering and Feeding System

Welcome to the principal web site for the Autopot Systems. This site is posted and managed by the owner and inventor of the Autopot Technology - Jim Fah in Melbourne.

The main purpose of this website is to provide readers with as much information (not found in other web sites) as possible on every aspect of the (award winning) Autopot Technology - including the development of the technology, how it works, the full range of products, applications and its future development.

This 2006 web site is being totally revamped. Unlike the past, from now on we are determined to keep this site constantly updated mainly on issues pertaining to its application, answering questions and progress made on various Autopot projects which many of the Autopot users will be interested to know. In other words, we would like to make this site active and interesting so that readers are keen to revisit the site from time to time for new information.

At the moment, the site is not perfect and still requires some final touches to improve on the visuals in particular the lettering on the drawings. We are working on it and will soon have that corrected. We do welcome any suggestions and feedback on how to make the site better.

You are now able to download in PDF format all the Autopot product brochures including the book (in full colour) all about the Autopot Systems - Hydroponics Made Easy, written by the inventor of the System - Jim Fah. Soon to be made available  (downloadable pdf format) are the operation manuals for all the Autopot products. 
As you browse through the site, you will be fascinated with the outstanding capabilities of this piece of technology developed in Australia.

Capers in Autopot System.
The biggest problem with commercial production of Capers is the difficulty of harvesting at ground level. Growing them in elevated set-ups will certainly reduce harvesting cost tremendously and Autopot hanging baskets offer a highly suitable option.
