Black sap?

Neoaethelwulf's picture


My garden is about a month old (first time). Some of the new growth in the center of the dill and cilantro has been leaking what I can only describe a a dark sap/resin. I have been pruning away the effected areas whenever possible. Can anyone tell me what this is, and what I should do for it?

Hello Everyone ! Cant wait to start sharing my grow with you all.


I ordered an Aerogarden Bounty with the seed starter kit included free from their website.

The seed starter kit is not in stock so here i sit and dream of growing. Wish they could ship it seperately.

I too am from Minnesota, this past weekend was brutal it hit 25 below --- windchill was 40 below.

It gets boring  - so yeah i want to grow soon! 


Fraoch's grow log


I received an AeroGarden Harvest and a Salsa Garden seed kit as Christmas gifts.

I started the Salsa Garden and only now have I noticed that it is a 7-seed kit (2 tomatoes, 1 pepper and 4 spacers).  Oops.  Well one tomato pod is spaced properly, the other one has the pepper beside it.  Spacers are at the front and in between one tomato and the pepper.  Too late now, we'll see what they do anyway...

We have very hard water here, the hardest in the country, so I set myself up with two big jugs (the kind used in water coolers) of reverse osmosis water and a hand pump.

New grower



 I am a new aerogarden grower and can’t wait to share my experiences with the group. I picked up two bounty elites and plan on setting them side by side one running an air pump and one stock. I really would like to see if I can tell a difference. I will plant the same in each one so the only different will be the air pump. I will post when I get them setup in a few days.


Updated Flood and Drain Aerogarden 1-21-2016

New winter Micro-green garden planted 1-5-2016 using an off the shelf LED Aerogarden with a grow bed attachment and my own pump modification for a fluid level switch to act as an overflow fail safe.  The growing substrate is shredded coconut coir fiber.  With the modifications, the Aerogarden is being used as a flood and drain hydroponic system that is currently set to flood every six hours.  I will add updated pictures as it grows.

Edit, Ginger: Fluid level switch, and planted Chef's Gourmnet Spicy Mix Meslun, below.
