You don't need to clean the Auk often, but we recommend quickly cleaning it before starting it over.

In summary:

  • Pots can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
  • The base plate and water tank must be cleaned by hand (with a dish brush or similar). Don't get too much water around the control panel (the base plate's buttons); the electronics are underneath.


Pots: Can go in the dishwasher or be cleaned by hand.

Base plate
: This can be cleaned with a damp cloth, dish brush, or similar. It cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher.

Be careful with water around the display with buttons - underneath is where the electronics are - which is also why the base plate can not go in the dishwasher.

You can use a small dish brush or cotton swabs to clean where the nutrient capsules are located.


Water tank: Can be cleaned with a dish brush or similar, not in the dishwasher. Be gentle around the valve in the water tank to avoid damaging it.
