I just got an AeroGarden Harvest for Christmas - it's been up only 7 days now and my tomatoes have already sprouted!
I notice there's an item on the AeroGarden website:
You know, that looks an awful lot like an aquarium air pump...I have one of those sitting unused.
I see my AeroGarden Harvest has two ports on the back with rubber plugs. Is that what those are for?
Could I use an aquarium air pump (and its bubble stone with clear tubing) with my AeroGarden Harvest to increase aeration and oxygen in the water? Would there be any downside?
Googling around, I see the only valid concern is that the clear tubing will let in light which may cause algae growth. But the ports are small and if I secure the clear tubing with black electrical tape I will minimize light leakage.
Are there any other concerns? Would this be a good thing to try?
