Harvest Tips

Cleaning the Unit

It’s essential to clean your AeroGarden before replanting, and you can use white vinegar or chlorine bleach. Personally, my preference is to use vinegar. It is much easier to use the pump during the cleaning stage. Run the pump for about 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with clean, clear water to rinse out the linings and pump for another 5 minutes after washing and wipe dry with a paper towel and let it sit for about 24 hours before planting your new seeds. Not cleaning the unit will run the risk of bacteria and root pathogens, including parasites spreading from plant to plant.

    Wow. This is great for someone who has a green thumb, but doesn’t like to actually do work in a garden and getting themselves dirty. I love the elegance of it and the fact that it alarms you when it’s time to water it, preventing the plant from becoming too dry or flooded with too much water. My mom loves to garden and loves plants in her house. when I was little, she would put me in charge of watering the plants, but I never knew how much was too much or too little. I prefer the Harvest 360 because it has six pods that come with seeds pods such as tomatoes, herbs, lettuce or petunias. Great post.

      Hello Shalisha, thank you for your lovely comment. the great part about having an AeroGArden is the ability to grow anything and you don’t have to be an expert. I recently was notified by my machine that the plants needed nutrients. It did this while I was at work. When I came home the lights were not on I thought oh no, what’s gone wrong and I noticed a little message saying the plants need food. So I added two caps of food and turned the lights back on manually. Harvest 360 is great! I have the Harvest Elite, which is a six pod. Experimenting and keeping a journal I think is the best project for your family when growing plants growing in an AeroGarden, it helps to record your success, issues, and failures. All the best.
