    I saw on Amazon that they have an additional separate water container to give you more time between watering

  2. Ed 369 on June 26, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    have 3 aerogardens and absolutely love em.

  3. John Richards on June 26, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Hello thank you for your review on the AeroGarden it was very interesting. I just received one for Christmas myself and I absolutely love it.

    Get yourself a nepenthese/pitcher plant. If ur still having fungus gnats

  5. R J on June 26, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Great video

  6. Ricky T on June 26, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    What do you do about the mold that gets on the grow pods?

  7. Playing With Fire on June 26, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Thank you I appreciate the review, based on that I’m getting one.

  8. Bill Delaney on June 26, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    If you set the timer correctly you can have it on at night and have a kitchen night light and for your fungus gnats get mosquito dunk granule style pet water kid safe and will get rid of fungus gnats for good really works great

  9. Threewisejavi on June 26, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Thanks for the video! I was thinking of getting it as a gift and this review made me feel comfortable that I’m making a good decision!

  10. Joe Te on June 26, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    I have been wanting to try this, but still not sure. Can you move those pots out of the Aero Garden and plant them on a regular pots?

  11. russargabright on June 26, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    They must have heard you, the new one I bought the light raises up to 18" and has a trellis system for taller plants. I did get the 9 pod one because it was on clearance for $75.

  12. Lady Hawk on June 26, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    It is a nice gimmick for the dabbler but you cannot raise anything besides herbs ( and even then) that you can use on a regular basis.
    Upon bringing my gardening indoors in the last 15 years during the winter and even the summer is so I can eat fresh all year long , that means everyday. A friend bought a couple of these all gunge ho on raising an indoor garden , when I saw it , I just shook my head and thanked the forced that be I dodged that bullet. However, these contraptions are a great $$$$ maker for whomever is selling them.
    Hydroponics is a fun way to grow plants , but I found it more productive to use the Kratky method. I found a way that works great for me an keeps me in salads and veggies all year long.
    I like the Areo garden full spectrum panels fro my situation , it uses little energy and fits a 1020 flat /dome perfectly and in those 1020 trays one can comfortably fit ten jars , if I have four panels and flats going , with thirty jars and one flat with dandelions for added salad depth, I can easily add two to four more 1020 flats in between for micro greens! I had to down size my production recently because we just don’t eat it all fast enough , but the chickens were happy.
    I really do like growing indoors , nothing is worse that finding creepy crawlies in your food from growing out side.
    I also recommend Ocean Solution number one , and also Grow Big for fertilizer. A little goes a long way.

  13. Gary Christensen on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    If you pull the sponge and roots from the cone you can but more l replacement sponges and plant your own seeds . Both from another source.
    and cheaper.

  14. John Lombardo on June 26, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    so im confused it comes with seed pods.. can you put your seeds in the pod? you may answer this by the end but i am impatient!! haha thanks for the review, i am super interested/… ok so it seems you answered.. so there is a separate do it yourself pod kit you can buy ? you only brushed that part over..

  15. BossMan1250 on June 26, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Don’t buy replacement pods! Cut the bottoms, fill with clay pebbles. Germinate the seeds outside of the unit and transplant when ready. I’ve had my aero garden for years and I’ve only ever used the original pods.

  16. L P on June 26, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Great review! I got my first one this last winter, got the Harvest Elite 360, and I love it! It’s absolutely worth it. I grew the provided herbs for 94 days, though mint never germinated that’s fine, I’ve got it outside. I also got a pack of coco coir pods to start round 2 which I’m 4 days into. I’m with you on there being more pros than cons. Thanks for sharing. 🙋‍♀️👏

  17. Jessica Flener on June 26, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    U are amazing and I’m definitely subscribing! Are u Italian? Bc I am and u spoke to me 😄🥰

  18. Holly Williams on June 26, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    You must cover the holes where unused seed pods are supposed to go. No light should get to the water to avoid algae. I don’t have any bugs but I don’t have other plants yet.

  19. Laura Dunn on June 26, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Walmart had these units for $40 on clearance and the seed pod replacements for $6😉

  20. Mase Woods on June 26, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Wow, first of all who is her husband? If she thinks that’s only 12 inches, he must be a monster. And Also, wow, a chick complain it’s only 12 inches, she is tough!

  21. A Dewdrop on June 26, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    I received one as a gift and wanted to know if the plants can get too much light- from its lamp, AND being placed (in my only space available) in front of a window of sunlight? I’m not a gardner like yourself and simply don’t know if that spot will work or cause a problem.
    Thanks for an informative review🙂

  22. Patricia Strobel on June 26, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    How do you drain the water out in order to put in fresh water?

  23. Kailey Spencer on June 26, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    They have a 24xl model which is a lot bigger. Didn’t know if you knew. Have a great day.

  24. imaChaser on June 26, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Germination = lack of light

  25. Heather Valentine on June 26, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Hated the tomatoes they sucked! Took 6 months to really get going, then to have them taste worse then a Costco tomato was DEPRESSING. My herbs were pitiful. I’m now using it to start plants. I would never buy again.

  26. benjiebarker on June 26, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Is there a bigger version for bigger plants?

  27. BAN EVERYTHING! on June 26, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    You have the same pretty face and eyes of the girl I fell in love with in high school so long ago and I was staring at you and forgot to listen to what you said. LOL! I just got four similar to this and have lettuce, basil, turnips, and radishes growing. I can already tell I`m gonna love this new hobby!

  28. Lisa's Journey on June 26, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    great video!!! thanks

  29. Derek Macdonald on June 26, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    been looking at this since im tired of fighting bugs, birds and animals messing with my plants is why i gave up. this looks better but won’t get as high as being outside.

  30. Vani Little Star on June 26, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I have a question, does the pump continously pump water over the top like a geyser or do you hear the the pump?

  31. myra sabbs on June 26, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    I enjoyed your review. Look forward to growing beautiful things and watching more inspiring stories!

  32. zeruty on June 26, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Germination doesn’t require light. Light actually hinders germination for some seeds. You don’t need the light until the first seedling appears. But you do need warmth and moisture. Humidity especially, hence the domes. And oxygen, hence the pump.
    Seedlings don’t need more light than bigger plants. However, I wouldn’t call 12-14 hours a lot of light. 16 hours of light and 8 hours of dark is a pretty good ratio for vegetative growth for for day-neutral plants.
    For photoperiodic plants, 16 hours of light helps prevent flowering and seed growth. So this would be good to keep leaf growth longer without bolting. Alternately, reducing the light to 12 hours or less may be necessary to cause flower and seed/fruit growth.
    More than 16 hours of light is of questionable utility. It may help some plants but not others.

    And with LEDs, they can be really close to the plants. 2 or 3 inches may be more space than needed. If you can touch the lights without it being uncomfortable, you may be able to have the lights within an inch or even touching them. While with heavy duty high pressure sodium lamps, you may need a couple of feet of space to prevent burning.

    The pods are labeled according to height. The ones labeled tall go to the back with the smallest at the front

  34. Theo Billios on June 26, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks great video

  35. Adam Vargas on June 26, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    Some points to consider about aerogardens…..

    Height – although expensive, they sell huge aerogardens (4 feet wide) that can support 3 foot tall plants, so you can do “bush” sized tomato/pepper/cucumber plants. They also sell the “bounty” size which is 9 pod slots and 2 foot height for the lamp.

    Pods- they sell pod “blanks” so you can put your own seeds. This can save significant money and allows you to pick plants and varieties they dont sell. A pack of 50 on amazon was $14 at the time i am writing this.

    Transplanting/garden starting – they sell a top that has extra pod slots exclusively for seed starting to transplant out of the system. The unit you have has a tray for 23 pods. The bounty/9 pod starting tray has 50 slots. You only grow them to the size needed for transplanting, then transplant to pots/garden/etc with care to keep everything moist til it can adjust to normal soil conditions.

  36. 伏見猿比古 on June 26, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    I do think it’s possible to re-use the planters, it would just be annoying to clean out the roots.

  37. BigSky on June 26, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Great video. Quick tip- block the holes that you aren’t using to prevent light from shining in the water, you’ll get algae bloom in your tank.

  38. Robin Bregman on June 26, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    You’re awesome! Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I learned a lot.

  39. Cassalynn Victoria on June 26, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Nice, I am thinking about buying this for my 6 year old he wants to learn how to grow his own food. Thank you!

  40. Our World Statistics on June 26, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    I just ordered the harvest XL, its on sale now and added a discount code from a guy on YouTube for $168. can’t wait to get it. I never grew anything so this should be interesting.

  41. drakejdf on June 26, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    This was the best video and most informative.I just purchased a couple of these aero gardens just for something to do lol.I can’t wait to see the results.

  42. Jose Robles on June 26, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Thanks for the review Jackie! Very detailed and informative I/we appreciate it. Hey I encourage you to check out “Truth of God broadcast” on YouTube 👋🏼

  43. Tertion on June 26, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Seed pods can be 3d printed (if you have a 3d printer of course), super useful.

  44. MAMA GYPSY'S CARAVAN on June 26, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you for this review. My daughter just bought me one for Christmas and this is part of my research. I too am a gardener and I’m looking forward to trying it out.

  45. Alexander Tombs on June 26, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Don’t fertilize seed/ seedlings just water will do.

  46. Candace Bielke on June 26, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Love this video. It’s very informative, but fun at the same time. I’m a big gardener, but the growing season is so short where I live. This definitely looks like a good option for me. I did laugh partway through because I couldn’t tell what your stove display said (alien symbols? I need better eyesight?). It added to the video.

  47. RN083012 on June 26, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I love your energy! Thanks for the very informative video!

  48. K on June 26, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I am so ADHD, your review is so perfect for me! I didn’t research it, but asked for it! got this for Christmas & am keeping it per your review! Thank you for being here! If you know, you know

  49. Lakeside Homestead With Dave and Karen on June 26, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    I love mine. We do a lot of outdoor gardening but here at -20 in the winter… it’s nice to have fresh herbs etc…Hello fro our homestead up here at the lake in Ontario Canada!!!!

  50. kimchee94112 on June 26, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    The bad
    Very expensive for mostly plastic. I have two so it added up to $$.
    About $3 per month for electricity per unit. By the time to harvest the tomatoes with the electric cost, buying at the supermarket would come out ahead. I’m in California your electric bill may be different.
    Buttons don’t work on both of mine, hit or miss, mostly miss. Seems to be a design flaw.
    When power goes off, need to reset time, date, everything. Should have battery backup at this price point.
    Root entanglement, will take some work to repot in the garden assuming if you haven’t killed it.
    One filter missing or was it tangled with the long roots gone in the trash. Pump was clogged.

    The good
    Fun seeing it grow.
    Harvest all year long.
    Clean, most everything done for you, although roots take a lot of water and required often refills.
    Modified Keurig coffee K-cup works pretty good but need to remove the outer plastic. Plant also grew the fastest in it, only did one so YMMV.

    This was test run to see if a larger hydroponic system is viable for me.
