Anyone else have an Aerogarden?

SarahMarieSarahMarie Registered Users Posts: 901
Does anyone else on here have an Aerogarden? I got mine for Christmas last year. I grew the herbs that came with it and was really pleased. Then I got a salad greens kit and was also very happy with the results from it. I just received the green bean kit that I ordered. Does anyone know anything about it? I wanted to get strawberries, but they apparently don't sell them right now.

    I would love to have some, but it's not in my budget nor do I have the space. Did you know people are growing marijuana in them?:laughing7:

    I'm intrigued by these but I don't have one. Do the herbs grow year-round or do they die eventually? I thought about buying an Aerogarden just to have fresh herbs in the winter. I don't want to have to keep re-planting them, though.

    I think you could walk around with words and stick people drawn on your face and still look supercute.

    I have one, but it is now empty and collecting dust. It got a horrible case of those little white bugs... the name is escaping me now. I plan to replant it when I move in December. I had the herbs, so I don't know anything about the green beans. I would love to hear how yours turn out though. I LOVE green beans! :)

    I LOVE my Aerogarden. I just stick to growing the legal herbs and stuff. ;) I really wanted a garden, but I didn't have money. I asked for an herb garden for Christmas last year, thinking I would get pots and seeds, which I was totally fine with. My boyfriend's mom really surprised me and got me the Aerogarden. They have smaller ones now that only hold 3 plants. They're still $100 though! I honestly think it is worth it for me though.

    I love having the fresh herbs/vegetables year round. The herbs do have to be replanted, but they lasted for 6 months before I had to take them down because I was moving. I'm excited about the green beans. I'm planting them tonight. They come with little wire trellises.

    Would be cool to see some photos here, as I never even heard about aerogardens (going to google right now huh). Home garden is my dream, I am a noob here, just thinking about buying +1 LED grow light device. I think many details and conditions depend on the climate you're living in. Gardening indoors always presupposses a cold one. Cold climate means lack of sunshine and ultraviolet, which you have to compensate no matter how. The most accessible and economical way are quality LEDs, here is fair and comprehensive review on top LED grow lights by the way https://smokeandbuzz.com/  . LED technology allows saving electric energy (and bills for it), it is more advanced than previous HID/MH lights. Just pay attention to the next factors choosing a suitable lighting device: power consumption, price, spectrum, wattage, coverage area, and grow room space. Good LEDs can serve you more than 10-20 years, I think it is very important.
