Instead of utilizing soil (which can be messy and attract insects), the garden features a hydroponic system, which makes it look as though the plants are floating on water.
It might sound like a fast-track to root rot, but it’s actually really good for the seeds. In fact, it’s supposed to grow five times faster than regular soil. (And yes, we’re already putting it to the test.)
Taking care of the garden is super simple: There’s a tank of water under the plants, which can supply them for several days. There are also high efficiency LED lights that are designed to maximize photosynthesis. (All this means is you don’t have to worry about finding natural light, since it does all the work for you.)
The control panel is extremely user-friendly and features small light indicators that let you know when to add water and plant food (included in the kit). The AeroGarden White Harvest Indoor Hydroponic Garden comes with an Heirloom Salad Seed Pod Kit—however, it can grow up to six plants at a time, so we highly recommend investing in more seeds.
