Total newbie needs old aerogarden instructions

Forums: 

I recently bought an old used Aerogarden Elite6 (not with LEDs but the old type of lights).  Seller had installed new lights and after filling with water the airstone works but not very impressively.  Has anyone added extra airstone or is that small amount of bubbling sufficient?

Missing seeds

Forums: 

Just a heads up that I have now received three 9 pod seed kits that had more than a few with no seeds at all placed in the sponges.  When I call customer service they send me a replacement kit with no questions asked.  In fact, they are so nice about it I actually feel guilty accepting a replacement box. 

Two of the seed kits were on Petunias, and one was for various types of lettuce. 

 

Water pump for AG Ultra (connector problems)

Forums: 

The cord that goes from the water pump to the base is damaged, basically completely severed.  There is no replacement part with the correct connector available in the AG web store.  Would something like this work?  Is there a better option?

The part requires the type of connector that plugs into the power base.  Like this:

Outdoor Flowers 2017

Ginger's picture

I bought pansies this year, instead of growing them from seed... From seed, I need to start them at New Year's, and run growlights for a couple months for them alone. Just didn't bother this year.

Flowers I grew from seed: impatiens, gazanias.

I didn't get a picture of it, but apparently a volunteer hollyhock will bloom this year, too. Calibrachoa and snapdragons and columbine volunteer in the garden. I dug out some calis from the railing planters and put them in 6-packs to grow up in safety.

Outdoor Cucumbers and Beans 2017

Planted cukes and beans yesterday - way late. And still kinda chilly.

I ran out of seeds for my current favorite cuke, summer dance (only had 1 left). Ordered more of those... The bean seeds are pretty old, too.

Anyway, cukes: planted tsuyataro, one summer dance, and something called Green Dragon I'd never seen before (a 10", bitterfree, smooth green something.)

Four different kinds of bean seed, all dubious in age. Green and purple pole beans, two varieties of bush beans.

Tags: 

Started tomatoes indoors as usual, in potting mix. Started three early, three on time (actually, one of those three was late.)

This year's line-up is:

Early starts (transplanted out age 9 weeks):

bucks county - largish
Park's Whopper CR Improved - largish - first try at this
artisan tiger stripe - grape - mixed colors, so don't know whether I've got something new

In-season starts (transplanted out age 4-5 weeks):
