AeroGarden Aeroponic Indoor Garden
The AeroGarden by AeroGrow uses new high tech improvements in hydroponic gardening to grow plants five to ten times faster than soil gardening for amazing harvests in very little time. Unlike classic hydroponics gardening systems where plant roots are submerged in water, aeroponics systems use the plant’s ability to take in oxygen through the roots. The plants are suspended in a 100% humid, “rainforest” environment where they are regularly bathed in a nutrient solution, resulting in accelerated plant growth.
AeroGrow International’s indoor container garden is controlled by a microprocessor that monitors and delivers water, nutrients and light according to each specific seed kit. Lights on the Smart Garden control panel blink when water or nutrients need to be added. Full spectrum grow lights (2 light bulbs included) provide all the light needed for optimal plant growth. Engineered exclusively for indoor gardening, the efficient grow light bulbs use less energy than a sixty watt light bulb.
Bio-dome seed pods, or mini-greenhouses, encapsulate each seed for faster, healthier germination. The smart garden bio-dome regulates nutrients, oxygen and water delivery to the seeds as they grow. Simply ppen the seed kit and place the seed pods into their assigned slots on the AeroGarden grow surface. Make sure the label is facing forward and press each pod in place firmly. No Green Thumbs required!
Time released aeroponic nutrients deliver a balanced blend of 85 macro and micro nutrients for optimal plant growth. Aero Grow’s patent-pending pH balancing system automatically adjusts any water system’s pH. Drop in a tablet when the AeroGarden Smart Garden Control Panel reminds you – about every two weeks.
Use the nutrient tablets that came with the seed kit. AeroGrow nutrient tablets are specially formulated for each seed kit. Using a different seed kit’s nutrient tablets may harm the plants you are trying to grow and result in less than optimal flavor and growth.
Nutrient tablets consist mainly of mineral salts and provide the 13 micro and macro nutrients that all plants require in the right proportians for growing Gourmet Herbs in a container garden. The tablets also contain seaweed for 70 additional micro nutrients, a pH balancing tap water buffer and a binder to hold the tablet together.
