Despite a certain user on here scamming inccocent noobs into buying her manual on growing in an AeroGarden, the AG is an obvious waste of money compared to DIY333333kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii1q (sorry mate my cat just typed that. hahah it looks cool so Im gonna leave it....) compared to DIY. The AG deluxe model costs about $200 not including shipping legitimate nutrients pH buffers air stone air pump or test kits. With that money you could easily set up your own efficent Ebb and Flow table. (not including lights, but would yield Ounces upon ounces more than the AG. The AG's lights will also become useless after a while.) I have a feeling that certain lady is going to find her way to this thread and say that the AG is meant for closet growers that can't fit much else. Well guess what, an ebb and flow will fit in your closet. Tightly, but still, you would have better results with a 4 gallon DWC even (if you cant fit an ebb and flow) than an Aerogarden. The Aerogarden is exteremely susceptible to Mold and therefore the plants Necrosis due to mold. The certain scammer-user trying to get us all to buy her manual says I don't know what I'm talking about. I have a very failed grow in an Aerogarden following all of her advice, therefore I am a legitimate source of how much the AG is a waste of money. By the way the reservoir is about a gallon big, even though it has 7 pods available. Therefore there is no way no matter what sized plant it is that 7 plants can fit into that reservoir. The scammer acknowledged this, she only grew one plant which was pretty healthy yielding an ounce or so, fooling many into thinking an actual crop is possible. Its not. Here is a link to (IMHO) the single most informative DIY video I've seen (and its not mine!! ahah) ebb and flow!

Even then there are much cheaper options, though.
