    Thank You, for this info, I am just starting out with my hydroponic garden and I am trying to learn as much as possible. and by the way you have an amazing calm voice it's very soothing !;) THANK YOU AGAIN!

    Do you recommend any specific company to buy your seeds? Obviously organic and non-gmo…? Thank you – GREAT GREAT VIDEO!

    I really love Aerogardens, this one works really good! I'm running out of room for them now. I enjoy fresh herbs for cooking. My garden is growing like a weed. Easy to operate. Love it>>> .

    I'm growing aquaponically in an outdoor green house, but I am having trouble starting seeds. This looks like a good way, but should I use the light that I have for 24 hours or for the normal daylight cycle? I live I the Bahamas and we have good long days of bright sun. Do I need to use the light at all, or will the outdoor sunlight be sufficient? Or should I use both to extend daylight for a few days?

    Mr. Starr,
    I really enjoy your videos and the great information. I am growing seeds in soil right now but want to transfer over to the hydroponic system. I did not and do not have the proper lighting so the stems are long. Are these trash now or can I recover?

    Can you please tell me what model Aerogarden you're using. They seem to be very expensive. The 10-watt Aerogarden Sprout LED is much cheaper, but will it work? I have a small apartment and would really like to try to grow some lettuce and maybe peppers. Thanks.
