Frequently Asked Questions

How do AeroGardens work?

AeroGardens are designed to help you grow your own herbs, vegetables, salad greens or flowers at home. Our Seed Pod Kits are compatible with every model of AeroGarden. Planting with Seed Pods is fun and easy! Just insert the pre-seeded pods in your garden, add water, and the patented, specially formulated Liquid Nutrients. Most plants germinate within 7-14 days, are ready for harvesting in 4-6 weeks, and will keep producing continuous harvests for up to 6 months and longer. Indoor gardening can’t get any tastier or simpler!

How do I prune Lettuce/Salads?

Lettuce is one of the fastest-growing indoor crops and it's a staple. Who doesn't love to be healthy with delicious home-grown lettuce, or add a fresh leaf of romaine on their sandwich, or a salad of tasty arugula? And with AeroGarden, you can enjoy delicious Spring greens all throughout fall and winter! As a general rule, never prune more than ⅓ of any plant at once.

How long will it take my plants to germinate?

Different types of plants take different amounts of time to germinate and grow. In general, we’ve found these germination timeframes to be consistent:

  • Flowers take about 7-12 days
  • Salads: 5-8 days
  • Herbs: 5-15 days
  • Fruiting vegetables (such as tomatoes and peppers): 7-14 days If any of your seed pods don’t germinate after 21 days, contact us so we can send out a replacement for you under our 100% germination guarantee.

How do I clean my AeroGarden before starting a new garden?

After each planting, we recommend cleaning and sanitizing your AeroGarden for the best results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I expect companies to have occasional problems, but not the same ones over and over. I have had a Bounty since May 2019. The 1st herb kit sprouted completely. That is the last time I have had 100% success. Since then about 10% of the rosemary germinates. I have also had very little success with the cilantro. The last two orders have had 1 of 4 cilantros germinate, while 3 of the 4 holy basil where a different type basil, even though they were marked as holy basil. They will send you replacements, but it usually takes about two weeks to receive after waiting 3 weeks for them to sprout. Five weeks apart is far too long to be able to catch up with the ones that did germinate and were as listed and ordered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still waiting... This is my second experience with my AeroGarden and so far not nearly as good. I purchased a three pod custom kit of Basil, Oregano and Cilantro and planted them 20 days ago. The basil sprang right up as noted on the pod. The cilantro has finally sprouted one small vine but the oregano is virtually non-existent and has been the same size for weeks. Same happened with my curly parsley in my last set but the five others grew beautifully. I’ll be contacting the company by phone for replacements this week. For now, I can’t honestly rate more than three stars, and that’s based mostly on my last experience. I know it works, just not consistently. When it does, it’s AWESOME!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aero Garden not worth the money I ordered a 9 pod custom blend used 6. Two did not sprout at all. One said oregano and was cilantro. Also I got this as a gift from my husband. He ordered the herbs and we got lettuce. So far I would not recommend. They are packaged horribly. All rolling around in a box. No wonder some don’t sprout, the seeds fall out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Received a Disaster I received my order today and when I opened the box, what I saw wanted me to return the order on the spot. The pods were a mess. Three of the pod did not have sponges because they had fallen out so I don't know what goes where. Seed are all over the bottom of the box. I paid over $25 for this? If this is what I can expect, this may be the last time I purchase anything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tomatoes. I bought several kits for Christmas presents and one for myself. Overall it has been a good experience. My dill is 2 feet tall in my outdoor garden. The mint is plentiful. I have several lush tomato plants. I pick fresh tomatoes for salad every night. I’ve had a few pods that never sprouted and I just reported them to the company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything grows at different rates I bought mint, basil, and dill. Everything grew at different rates (like in nature) but soon enough I had full plants of basil, mint, and dill. I've grown basil a couple times now and this time it took a little longer to see it shoot through, but that's regular variation. I will say that the mint is annoying - like in your garden it takes over everything and in this instance, it kind of overshadowed the dill and smothered it. Overall I really happy with this kit - I only have a three pod device so I like the ability to customize my selections.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 out of 6 pods grew. This is the second 6 pack I have purchased. I am now at 2 out of 12 to grow at all and one of this two died at rhe three week mark. After over $200 I have three sprigs of chive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Germinate One of these never germinated. This was the add-ons I bought to the free ones that came with the purchase of the garden and 2 of those didn't germinate either. I wanted 3 different ones that were not part of the gourmet herb set. Rosemary, Mint, and Curly Parsley never grew. I waited and waited, but nothing after the 3 weeks of waiting to see if they'd sprout, I tried to email them. it's been over a week and they haven't answered. I got fed up with waiting and because 3 of my little pods are doing fine, I bought a kit off of amazon that had 2 of my missing pods but I can't buy rosemary on it's own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment! We bought our aero garden about two months ago, and every one of our herbs except the parsley came in great. We cut down the herbs that grew the fastest to make room for the parsley to grow and are hopeful this will allow it to grow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basil yes, Cilantro (and others) no. I have now planted the original 6 herb pods and then 2 custom sets of 6, then a replacement for several of them. With the original set, everything came up. Some (mint, parsley, basil, dill) have been repotted and are still growing. The custom sets do not seem to be of the same quality. I have tried cilantro 3x now, and they have never even sprouted. Rosemary 2x, nothing. Original parsley grew great, custom parsley shriveled and died. Lavender started growing, then simply turned brown and died. I suspect the custom seed pods are less frequently purchased and thus are of lower quality, it's the only conceivable explanation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Herb seed pod kit I have purchase several seed pods in the past few years and this one is no different than the others as after 28 days only 1 of the 6 plants is showing any real growth. That is the basel and it always seems to do well. The chives has started and may work out but too soon to tell. The mint and cilantro have just started to sprout and again too soon to tell but past experience causes me to have doubts. The oregano and parsley are not showing any signs of sprouting. There are 6 more see pods to be planted at a later date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Italian Parsley?? Every time I want to order Italian Parsley there is none available! I have tried to customize for my two gardens and for the two I purchased as gifts and I have to check constantly and hope I get lucky! Also, two of the three I bought for myself stopped producing...very frustrating! For both my gardens and my daughter's , the oregano never germinated! It is really hit or miss in terms of what you get and how well it grows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Harvest This is my 3rd planting in this AeroGarden. . .after the other 2 matured, I planted them outside in pots. It is almost November the tomatoes are still producing. Last week, I re-planted my garden . . .the basil and thyme are growing already. It's cool to have fresh herbs in the kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never sprouts I bought a variety pack and half never sprouted. I contacted customer service to order more. I planted a new pack with the replacements over a month ago and the replacements didn’t sprout either. It difficult to deal with replacements because once the plants that do sprout get to big you can’t plant fresh ones because the light cannot go close enough and the shade from the other plants blocks the light for the sprouts. I noticed it is very plant specific, I have never had trouble with Basil or thyme but everything else never grows. I have planted 4 times now and I average half never sprout.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty herb pods Only 1 of 6 herbs sprouted after 23 days. This was my second attempt and I was diligent in following ALL instructions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fuzzy mold-like growth This is the second time that your pods contained mold growing spores. I made sure to thoroughly clean the garden bowl and all parts in it. I like the idea of growing herbs indoors, but I shouldn't have to deal with mold from your seed pods. Others online have indicated the same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from General comments on my AeroGarden I purchased my AeroGarden back in November. The pods sprouted quicker than I could imagine. Within several weeks I have fresh dill, basil, parsley and a couple other herbs. I love having fresh herbs at my fingertips. Here’s the negative. I live in a one floor condo. The light from the AeroGarden can be seen in outer space. I use a towel to cover the unit at night when the light is on. Can you come up some kind of cover to allow the light not to flood my place? Other than that 5 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I planted my 6 pod AeroGarden for the second time since receiving as a gift. I bought 12 pod custom herb seed kit from this website. I planted Genovese basil, lemon balm, dill, cilantro, tarragon, and Italian parsley. Only 3 have germinated and growing. The lemon balm started , but withered and died within days, and tarragon and cilantro have not shown any signs of growth, I planted garden on January 6, 2019. Today, February 24, I replaced lemon balm with oregano. I'm disappointed with the seed pods purchased from this website. My first attempt was much more successful, as I only lost one. I have followed all the directions and guidelines. I still have 5 pods and will continue to replace, but feel if only 3 have grown out of 6 pods planted, that's not good odds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Basil Pods I am very disappointed. Unfortunately in my custom pod that I ordered, the two basil pods I received never even sprouted. I’ve never had any issues before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast Growth on All Plants Except One My basil sprouted exactly 2 days after planting it in my aerogarden, the thyme showed up a week later but for some reason I haven't had any luck with the oregano and it's been over 2 weeks now. :( That's the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. But the basil and thyme, I am very happy with. The rate of growth, as you can see is fabulous and this is after 2 1/2 weeks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I was gifted an AeroGarden for Christmas and within a few weeks, I had usable herbs! There's no sound; however, the light is VERY bright. I'm sure all LED grow lights are that way. I would highly recommend this for anybody how likes to cook or eat fresh foods!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Two of the pods did not even sprout after 30 days. Basil and dill are fine. Parsley and thyme are very slow at sprouting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2/6 never grew Hard to justify paying this much for seeds when a third of them never sprouted.
Date published: 2019-05-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good experience. Honestly the seeds I got seemed to be unhealthy or something wrong with my unit caused a lot of growth to rot at the tips, only one of the chives sprouted so it's not really enough to use in dishes after around 3 months overall it wasn't worth the price + shipping and I'll probably use my own seeds next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worse germination than usual Two out of six failed to sprout. One of the pods was crushed, but I put the peat cone in an old pod (and it did sprout). I know I can exchange the pods that aren't growing after three weeks, but by then it will be too late to start the replacements as the other plants will be too large and will block them from the light. This is my third round with my aerogarden, and while I do love it, I've never had 100% germination.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Basil, OK Mint, Poor Rosemary I tried three of the varieties (basil, mint, and rosemary) - 30 days in, here are the results: - the Italian basil is amazing and vibrant, and growing like crazy! I've already harvested several times. - the mint has a couple of weak shoots, which hopefully will take off soon - the rosemary has not sprouted at all

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sad about my herbs I have only planted 3 of the herb pods and the oregano barely sprouted after 21 days and the Rosemary didn’t sprout at all after 28 days. The cilantro did sprout well and is thriving. I was disappointed with this. I love the step garden and many of the other pods have been super sucsssful this one just wasn’t great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been Loving My Aerogardens For Years! I have 3 Aerogardens and I have enjoyed them for several years (approximately 8-10 yrs). I have had such a good experience with them. They require very little maintenance (the one exception being when you start a new garden but it's just a bit of maintenance) so you just keep enjoying your produce. The Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes are so yummy!! My Basil plant is a regular in my garden. It grew multiple stems and with regular use, you will keep getting Basil for an unbelievably long time. The plant food is excellent and designed to work on these smaller gardens beautifully. I would be lost without my Aerogarden. I tried some of everything except flowers because I can't eat those. 😉
