Herein, can you grow anything in an AeroGarden?

Plant and grow your own seeds in your AeroGarden! With the Grow Anything Kit, you can plant and grow all year-round, no matter the season. Your seeds will grow in water, light, and air with the optimal conditions of the AeroGarden.

Also Know, can you grow fruit in an AeroGarden? Unfortunately, not all plants are suitable for growing in the AeroGarden! Many small berries and fruits grow on large trees or shrubs that would not fit in an AeroGarden, and of course root crops, such as potatoes, onions and carrots, also will not fit in an AeroGarden.

Also to know is, what grows best in AeroGarden?

Lavender, petunia, and snapdragons are all available in seed pod kits. If you want to grow another species of flower grab a Grow Anything kit and plant away. The only flowers that won't work in the Aerogarden are those that grow especially tall like sunflowers, or those that grow in large bushes, like roses.

Can you use any seeds in an AeroGarden?

Just about anything that grows above the ground can be planted in an AeroGarden. Some seeds will be more successful than others, but experimenting is part of the fun! Our Gourmet Herbs and Salad Greens Seed Pod Kits are very easy to grow, and a great choice for first-time growers.

Does AeroGarden save money?

The AeroGarden Harvest is a fun herb garden that anyone can appreciate — it's easy to use and being able to say you grew the herbs that you're eating is cool. The unit isn't cheap, but the price can be justified because you're growing things that you would've bought otherwise so it saves you money in the long run.

How do you replant AeroGarden pods?

Fill the pot about 3/4 full of potting soil, and dig a deep hole right in the middle. Carefully and slowly pull out a pod from the Aerogarden unit, starting with the smallest plant. The roots at this point will be very long and possibly intertwined with others.

Can AeroGarden plants be transplanted?

As the plants grow larger, they can be removed from the AeroGarden and transplanted into containers. Leaving the plastic growing basket intact around the roots increases success with transplanting and won't affect plant growth. Attempting to remove the basket may damage the root system and kill the plant.

How do you grow cilantro in a AeroGarden?

AeroGarden. To speed germination of cilantro, put a quarter on top of the seed sponge (don't use the bio-dome) and after two days check for germination twice a day. As soon as you see the seeds beginning to sprout, remove the quarter to give them the light they'll need to grow and develop

How does an AeroGarden work?

AeroGarden systems allow for plant roots to grow outward into air space, and then down into a highly oxygenated nutrient solution. Plants grown in an AeroGarden do not use soil, but instead get their nutrients from a combination of air and a nutrient rich water solution.

How much water does the AeroGarden bounty hold?

The reservoir holds more than a gallon of water, which should last quite a while before you need to add any more water. Depending on the climate you live in, you may need to add more water sooner than others, but generally, the Bounty doesn't seem to need more water until after about two weeks.
