The AeroGarden Farm 24plus – Review

Basil and cherry tomatoes

Treat yourself to the new AeroGarden Farm 24plus! Creating produce at home is a fantastic way to indulge your family to nutrient-rich vegetables that they can add to their plates or blend in a juicer. The AeroGarden Farm 24plus is an ideal size for the whole family, and you have the ability to grow tall plants.

Do you already have an AeroGarden? Are you planning on upgrading your old system to the new Farm 24Plus? 

Many people already have a smaller AeroGarden: 3 pods, 6 pods, 7 pods, 9 pods, or 12 pods and would love to upgrade to the 24 pods. The AeroGarden Farm Plus is the perfect size that allows you to grow tall plants such as tomatoes that require more room to grow and thrive in this new floor unit to a height of 24”, much higher than my harvest elite!

The AeroGarden has a Star Rating of 4.9 out of 5.

Assembling your new kit

Even though it looks difficult to set up, one person can assemble this unit, and it takes between 1 hour to 1 ½ hour. All you need to do is follow the step-by-step picture instructions on the sheet that came with your AeroGarden Farm 24plus.

Once you have assembled the kit, you will have a left-and right-hand side, and each unit holds 12 pods. I have a 6 pod AeroGarden Harvest Elite 360 and can vouch for the farm plus has more space between each hole for the pods. The new system allows more room between plants and root growth. If you decide only to plant one side, don’t connect the other side to the power. Set up your Smart system, adjust the height of your LED light. 

While you are assembling, think about where you are going to put your new system because once you have put together the unit, it will be difficult to move.

The positives most certainly outweighs the cons of the Aerogarden Farm 24 plus

    I love this companies mission statement.

    I think it’s really important that people reconnect with the foods that sustain their lives. Modern living has separated so many people from understanding such basics as where does our food come from.

    When asked, I’ve heard kids say that peas come from tins! However, if they could see vegetable growing day by day they could reconnect with nature and hopefully become more respectful of our world and all the life it contains.

    The aerogardening farm plus is a great idea for those who don’t have a patch of dirt outside their back door!

      Hello, Andrew, thank you for responding. I totally agree with you. I have come across the same thing when it comes to children, who also think milk comes from a carton in a supermarket. AeroGarden Farm Plus is ideal for homes, including schools where children will benefit from growing their own salad greens for school sandwiches.

    I love the idea of having a “wall” of vegetables. It will look so nice in my kitchen and it will certainly be convenient 😉
    Not having to deal with messy soil is definitely a plus point and also having a remote control. I have heard so much about these systems and I have always wanted to try it out. I think I will soon, as soon as my kitchen is built.

    • Yvonne says:

      Hello Christine, I hope you had a lovely Christmas. The wall of vegetables is a great idea also not having to deal with messy soil. I hope you will get one soon they are ideal for vegans because they are high in vitamins.

    Hi Yvonne. That’s a great AeroGarden Farm 24 Plus review.

    I agree with the pros and cons you listed above.

    I own an AeroGarden and I noticed that you may have to replace the lights every six months or so, but they are not expensive, the lights can cost around $10. So, not a big deal.

    You may also have to buy nutrients because you need to put them in it every two weeks so that bottles are gonna go really fast.

    It also makes noise. I don’t know if it may affect people, but it doesn’t affect me at all.

    For those just starting off, this is the perfect thing because it’s way easier to do indoors than outdoors. Yes of course the maintenance is there, I mean you may have to spend some cash on it but in the long run it saves you money because if you use it for fruits, for herbs, and vegetables, you won’t have to get vegetables from the store again haha.

    And it tastes really good too.

    Take care

    Hi Yvonne, That is amazing what you can all grow and do with an aero garden. I am fascinated that it is connected to Wi-Fi, so we have great control of it. I watched the video, and the idea of having vegetables harvested fresh, full of vitamins and minerals, is for me the best. I love to eat organic vegetables, and I try to get them on the farmer’s markets, so they are quite fresh, but to have your own garden and harvest what you need for your salad, that is really something I would love to have. I checked the price via your link, and I think it is not very expensive if you think about what you get, a touchscreen control panel, optimized lights, wifi connection. The sunset and sunrise function is something I only know from the f.lux setting on my computer. 🙂 I think this is definitely something I would consider buying. Thank you, Yvonne, for this very informative review.

    • Yvonne says:

      Thank you for your lovely response Sylvia. I am so happy you like the idea of the AeroGarden Farm 24 plus. When you grow your own in this unit remember the salad greens and herbs are much higher in nutrients than those plants grown in the soil. I am hoping to upgrade in the future myself. Wishing you the very best and I hope you do consider purchasing one of these wonderful units.
