dill sprouts have brown tips


The dill just sprouted.  The tiny stem is green but has a brown circular tip.  Is that normal?  My AG is new, and 7 days old.  I wonder if it's a nutrient imbalance.  I had overfilled my water about a quarter of an inch, and had already put the nutrients in, when I decided to siphen it back down to the proper level.  I wonder if it needs a bit more nutrients....  Two basils are looking good though and the mint is small but just sprouted.  Still waiting for cilantro and chives to sprout.  Only on day 7 though.

aerogarden lighting questions and room temp


I just started my aerogarden ultra. I've noticed some of the light hits the surrounding area. Has anyone tried placing any small potted plants around the aerogarden? I'm thinking of putting a small plant there to plus point a floor lamp with a 23w cfl bulb on it.   What do you think?

Also, anyone grow with room temps in the 80s? The room we have it in will usually be 78-85 during the summer. I've read that's higher than ideal for herbs in the aerogarden.

AG Summer Crisp

I started a Summer Crisp Lettuce a week ago(April 30).

I understand that it is not a cut n come again variety, but it will be interesting to try a different variety for a change because I eat so much lettuce.

Ginger's picture


Yay! Got my new AG Ultra LED and plugged it in tonight.

First planting: test run.

  • fantastico tomato for the long haul

Temporary test plants:

  • toy choi
  • komatsuna
  • Nevada summercrisp lettuce
  • Red Sails looseleaf lettuce

Started in 0.7 EC Urban Farm Fertilizers (UFF) veg formula in rainwater. Because that's what I fed my other AG's today. No special plan.

Outdoor Peas 2015

Ginger's picture


Hey wow! Pea seeds don't last long! frown With my usual sprout 'em indoors pea trick, I wasn't getting enough germination to fill my pea fences. Rather than wait for seeds to arrive ordered online (because I was already planting late), I bought a bunch of seeds from Walmart and Home Depot, and now have eight varieties of peas planted.
