  • You are a genius!!! I love how you use everyday household items to grow your food

    Two questions: How do you get your aerogarden to work like that, with just the lights? I have the same model and the pump always wants to work, so I have to fill it with water…. you seem to only have the lights on? How do you do that? Also, you didn't soak the rockwool cube – I've always soaked mine (as per the instructions) and I've never had any luck growing anything – you just put a dry cube in there and let it touch the water at the bottom – is that the best way to do it? Even with seeds? Or does this only work with seedlings? Thank you!

  • do you keep the light turned on 24×7?

    Are there any other ways to bring down the ph to 5.5? If I used distilled water, do I still need to do something to bring it down? (this is to soak the rock wool)? I hear suggestions of lemon juice or vinegar – lots of people say it works, lots of people say it doesn't… Mr Starr, what do you think? Thank you for excellent videos… you are inspirational!

    If you use a taller bottle or cut it up more you wouldn't need to add water as often. I would have used a little bigger of a container from the beginning. Maybe wider too they might tip easy.

    They have round rockwool plugs now. 1.5 fit perfectly in 1.75 or 2" net cup. They are 1.5 X 1.5. They have a slit for cuttings but work for seeds too.

    It's hard to believe that you can grow lettuce cheaper than you can buy it. Even with the used water bottle, it seems to me that the nutrients would be more expensive since the plant sucks up quite a bit of it as it grows. And that's not mentioning the cost of the electricity used by grow light. Great video, BTW. You should have your own gardening show on TV.

    What is the ppm strength you use in your lettuce grow

  • FlyingPigNJ 6 months ago

    How long will the lettuce live like this? (or how many times can you harvest) I'm just wondering if it's worth the trouble vs buying ready to serve for 5 bucks a head.

    I accidentally came across your video while watching Rainbow Garden. I guess its fate as I was wondering how can I grow peppers indoor all year round. I grow peppers not so much for the fruit but for the leaves w/c I use for cooking (ex: chicken tinola). I wonder if I could grow kangkong (water spinach) and bok choy this way, considering both plants love water.

    Do you leave the lights turn on 24 hours or do you bring the pots outside to get the natural sunlight and then evening bring in to put under the light ?

    This is an interesting way of growing. I can see this being useful in a lot of ways. Thank you for sharing this information. I will be giving it a try. I should be able to get the same results using a Manson jar, right?

    Instead of using the cups could you use the top of bottle upside down and cut the top off to grow the roots. Love your videos – thanks.
