    I am new to gardening and live a climate similar to Michigan. I live in an apartment with some space outdoors for container gardening. I am thinking of buying an Aerogarden and setting up a grow light set up in the winter. Please make some videos for apartment dwellers (with limited growing seasons).

    i just wasted a ton of money on soil, containers, lettuce heads, all for nothing, thanks to NO ONE on youtube with titles like ( YOU CAN GROW AT HOME ) Yeah for what? a hobby? 1 salad a month? You have to understand that people watching this will be low on food and looking for options to eat healthy and survive in this world where healthy food really is expensive for someone just getting out of homelessness or what not. people on welfare don’t just get jobs, they need to be healthy to work and this is a lot of money to them. Educate.

  4. jbfeelings Drinumist on October 6, 2021 at 8:26 am

    what is the lighting

  5. Sherri Gallant on October 6, 2021 at 8:28 am

    How far away from the plants should your lights be? I read 4”, but yours are much further.

  6. Tee Cee on October 6, 2021 at 8:29 am

    It’s gonna "romaine" in its same old bed

  7. Justin on October 6, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Have you tried growing jazz cabbage under those lights yet?

  8. DL Bro on October 6, 2021 at 8:30 am

  9. TheDudeAbides on October 6, 2021 at 8:33 am

    You sell your greens? Do you need a license? Also live in Michigan.

  10. garyp272727 on October 6, 2021 at 8:34 am

  14. Mister PuppyPants on October 6, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Keep the video to the point- Or just do a quick intro prerecorded.

  15. mylittlebluecottage on October 6, 2021 at 8:42 am

    So can I grow these greens year round if weather does not permit planting outside? Would I need to replant at some point

  16. Jay Austin on October 6, 2021 at 8:42 am

    I’ve had problems with mold when growing greens indoors. Any advice on how to prevent or kill the mold?

  17. Allie Hunter on October 6, 2021 at 8:42 am

    $30 month!!!?!!!! What kind of lights? Yikes.

  18. Lawrence Spies on October 6, 2021 at 8:42 am

    What lights are those?

  19. mshore74 on October 6, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Hi, great video. Thanks for getting into the nitty-gritty. What lumen per foot is your lighting and what brand do you use?

  20. CT Gardener on October 6, 2021 at 8:46 am

    I love watching and learning from your videos. Your passion for gardening is contagious. 😊

  21. Shonbondee Gibson on October 6, 2021 at 8:46 am

    How long do you leave your lights on daily?

  22. Art Zimorev on October 6, 2021 at 8:46 am

    will i be able to do this on my window sill without led lights also in smaller quantity?

  23. Gypsy B on October 6, 2021 at 8:47 am

    This year I finally have a heat mat and LED grow lights…See how well this does in my RV.

  24. Forrest Shoemaker on October 6, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Hey great video, I’m wondering if you guys are feeding the plants with nutrients in the water or using dry amendments, or just letting it go with nothing through the lifecycle of the greens?

  25. Seasonings2taste on October 6, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Imagine if you do this in a sunny area. You use more water but the savings will add up too.

  26. Tim Solomon on October 6, 2021 at 8:50 am

    I noticed, you don’t answer others questions much, but how did you prevent mold?

  27. ew filthy on October 6, 2021 at 8:51 am

    Fresh salad lol do you make your own dressing?

  28. Peter Hartman on October 6, 2021 at 8:52 am

    How may watts is this pulling from the wall and how many hours a day are you running it?

  29. Jessica Rauser on October 6, 2021 at 8:56 am

    What a beautiful indoor garden! I am in MN and would LOVE to grow like this throughout the winter months. What are the specs on these lights? Where are they from? Do you have a link? THANKS!!!!

  30. m m on October 6, 2021 at 8:56 am

    Wow so impressive

  31. Skating Canuck on October 6, 2021 at 8:57 am

    I am concerned about getting aphids indoors. I am not sure I will be able to find ladybugs (for aphid control) in the winter.

  32. Paper Tiger on October 6, 2021 at 9:00 am

    the point of this was?

  33. Jon Bills on October 6, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Anyone else think the baby noises @1:30 were coming from their own house?

  34. TheAj0323 on October 6, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Can you use a cut and come again method indoors?

  35. J Hickling on October 6, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Can’t you just make it simple you ducking nerd

  36. heavenlylinda on October 6, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Where do we order lights to start.

  37. Daniel Roden on October 6, 2021 at 9:04 am

    would you get better growth if you used mylar on foam board and reflected all the light back towards the plants or could you use 1 light instead of 2? that seems like a lot of wasted light spilling out into the room

  38. Stock762 on October 6, 2021 at 9:07 am

    What temperatures do you grow at?

  39. Renee Dulce on October 6, 2021 at 9:07 am

    How long did it take to get to that point from seed?

  40. Scott Engelman on October 6, 2021 at 9:08 am

    How did you make this???

  41. LockRocker365 Buzzard on October 6, 2021 at 9:09 am

    There is an old book " The Complete Book of Gardening Under Lughts" by Elvin McDonald (Doubleday c1965) with a bent towards florescents, that is interesting in addition to many modern "Grow your own" books which tend to use Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium lights. Ultimately Metal halide is most sunlike, HP Sodium is close but plants tend to stretch, and fluorescents/LEDs can be worthy.

  42. John England on October 6, 2021 at 9:11 am

    awesome to share with the community

  43. Duanes Buhler on October 6, 2021 at 9:12 am

    I’ve been satisfied

  44. Duane Johnson on October 6, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Can u email me the types of lights u used, and whete u got them from?

  45. 53muse on October 6, 2021 at 9:15 am

    lights used?

  46. Max on October 6, 2021 at 9:16 am

    All these lettuce videos all these lettuce expert’s… Not one single person yet has said okay you need 20 heads of romaine to grow inside in order for one person to eat this and this amount roughly… Or 5 or 40 .. nothing… Zero help what so ever…

  47. The one and only on October 6, 2021 at 9:16 am

    So what lights are these?

  48. Zach K on October 6, 2021 at 9:17 am

    I imagine the food is still very nutritious as long as you have good organic soil. Fun that you can grow enough greens inside a small bed, and no bugs to worry about eating them. Cool setup

  49. belanna Blackburn on October 6, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Ive been trying to find a guide for what LED’s to buy for an herb garden and somehow nobody has a straightforward answer /:

  50. Jon Sotirakopulos on October 6, 2021 at 9:22 am
