Been growing herbs 2 months, question about roots

Forums: 

Hi there,

I was just cleaning out my water reservoir and I noticed how tangled the roots are. I'm concered this might hinder growth. Especially since my dill doesn't look too good - it's leggy and flopped over and it seems the other root systems are pulling on it pretty hard.

Should I do some root detangling and cutting or just leave them alone?

Ghost peppers with tomatoes?

Forums: 

Hi all, 

 

First time poster, just pondering seeds for my second aerogarden (bounty model) effort.  I'm finishing up with the herbs which went well but I didn't really use enough of them.  I'd like to do the ghost peppers, but the description suggested doing 2 seed pods for a 9 pod system.  Just curious  - does anyone have a sense of how it'd work if i grew one ghost pepper seed pod and some tomatoes (maybe 2 pods)?   

Thanks and look forward to learning more about all this stuff..    

"Fill to Here" device in Harvest Elite

Forums: 

I'm cleaning my (wonderful) Harvest Elite for the first time.  My Basil had roots and roots and roots.  They got into everything so I took out the pump, took it apart, got rid of the roots and put it back together with no trouble although I've found no directions.  Then I pulled off the tube labeled "Fill to Here" and found out that inside it was a gizmo with a wide end made of clear plastic and a narrow end with metal.  I've taken two photos - see attached.

Aerogarden Extra power supply

Forums: 

I have a new (hand-me-down) AeroGarden Extra.

Gave it to mom a few years ago for Christmas, but she's now downsizing the house, and I'm now getting more into growing things, so it made sense...

It has two plugs - one goes in the wall, the other needs a brick.
I have a lot of bricks from tech things, but none that fit.

It't got 3 CFLs as lights, not LED.

Is there a good place to get that brick without spending $30 for it?

A picture is attached, in case it helps...

Are the plastic grow baskets biodegradable

Forums: 

A neighbor of mine claims he transplants his seedlings (both blooming flowers and tomatoes) still in their

plastic grow baskets (without the labels) from the AG and into the soil, and that these plants nevertheless thrive.

Is this recommended? Are the plastic baskets biodegradable? Thanks

Seed germination and lighting and maybe heat

Forums: 

I'm a bit confused here...

When I was starting to grow some bell peppers from seed, the things I saw said to germinate the seeds in darkness.
I put the seeds in rockwool cubes, between two black seeding trays, and kept them moist.
After almost 2 weeks of nothing I put a heating pad under it, and then they started to show signs of life a couple days later and started to sprout.

It sounded like the recommended way to do things was to give the seeds no light when germinating.
