Wow.. Only a month and half!

Do you think AeroGarden is better than out in the REAL world? :D



For me and the  digging and weeding is all eliminated they make units of three for 300.00 and some odd   
dollars.. I like them.. I wonder how much better the ground would be but it is still going and we have been harvesting since Nov. 27th this is into the 4th month of harvest for this batch!

I think this is good as the real ground!!

Hi, I just wanted to let you know about a new Aerogarden Community website, there you can share photos, swap seeds, share recipes and share tips and tricks about maintaining your Aerogarden.

( Sorry luke We cannot use the link as it is advertising...)   karen w.

Thanks

That is a fascinating thing to do Karen W and it looked so nice too. What I would like to know, please, is whether this apparatus can be built at home from scraps (I'm in the UK). Is it a special type of light bulb or is it an artificial daylight type and do you know what the nutrient was?

I do believe its a special very bright grow light which is set  up on a timer. I would think that one could build one from scraps using a simple plastic container with a lid wth holes cut out to fit like medicine size disposablle cops a starter pots with the bottom opened up in quarters.. I wll try to post you some pictures to your messages, showing you the cups and how the seeds come shipped etc.
 As far as the light goes I assume it is grow light, theirs has a specific end made to fit the hoodfd of the gardens top. but I am sure a properly spaced grow light placed two inches above the plants as they grow will be appropriate.
I used a bit of miracle grow after I ran out of nutrient.. I think it was similar.. I will investgate for you.
