No question really. I never planted in one before and they are growing pretty well. It's hydroponic and that's new to me also. I have perused the Aero Garden website for hints. Just wanted to share with others who have one.

Cheryl, I have two different Aero Gardens. Must have had them 10 years now. They are quite forgiving with any mistake one might make. I have grown herbs, several different greens and several different flowers. For two years i started all my veggies for my out door garden. They are a nice little item to have.

Cheryl, no experience with the Aero Garden but your herbs look lush.

However, in my experience herbs do not like too much moisture. They will grow well but need to be a bit dry for the oils (which give it flavor) to be stronger.

Are you planning to move them to indoor containers or outdoors?

I recognized basil but am curious what other herbs you are growing?

Please let us know how they do in your AG. Thumbs up
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

I've done basil hydroponically and it does amazing--most of the time I have problems with it getting larger than it should under my lights.

@pod They say you can keep growing the herbs as you use them which is why the garden is in my kitchen. And from the looks of it, I'd better start cooking! The light adjusts up to 18" tall. We're only about 9" so far.

So, The frilly one on the left is dill. Right in front of it just now producing it's first leave is Curly Leaf Parsly. There are Thai Basil and Gennovesse Basil. Mint is slow to start in between them behind the Kcups. And Cilantro off to a good start in the right front corner. The Kcups contain Sprial Grass seeds. they aren't doing a thing. Hrrrrmph!

Replacing the pods can get expensive. It is less expensive to by the pods without seeds and choose your own but it's still not cheap. And they say you have to replace the LEDs every 6 mos. Yeah, this project may not last! LOL
