[Amazon.ca] AeroGarden Bounty Elite Indoor Hydroponic Herb Garden, Stainless Steel $423.65

So just after Ontario started lockdown in 2020 I began looking into vegetable growing and I started watching the AeroGarden through CCC. This is the lowest price this version of the AeroGarden has been in a long time.

Price has been as high as $600 and a few times it has dropped below $475.

New price drop. Now $423

Good price compared to it's usual retail. I Have one of the small ones and find it's almost just a novelty item really. At this $400 price point, I think you'd be better off getting a separate, full spectrum LED. You could grow a multitude of plants and raise it as they grow. Aerogardens are kind of limiting as far as space/height.

I don't disagree, but thought I'd share if anyone was interested.

I bought an Aerogarden a few years at Costco-broke within 2 weeks, so back in went for a refund.

This past winter I ordered 2 of these on Amazon -Idoo 12 pod indoor gardens. You get the LED light, 12 pods, extra peat plugs etc and some plant food...Does not come with seeds, those you buy on your own

The worked perfectly. LED light is on a built in timer and you can set it for fruit and vegetables. The pump runs for 30 minutes at a time and there is a fan under the LED light which helps the germination and growth Great product and at about $120 far cheaper than any Aerogarden

Here's a link to one place selling them

That is pretty tempting lol!

On a quick check though the Aero will allow plants up to 24” tall. The Idoo is 14.9”. Depends on what you want to grow and if course the you could buy 3 Idoo for 1 of this Aero

I grow herbs and height of 14inches would be a limitating factor I feel like.

I have an old aero garden that's 24" in height. It's amazing for herbs but the led broke :(

Well you can't get everything at the cheap price.

I also have bought a systema like this-there are multiple sellers on Amazon all selling variations on the theme. Basically a tank, fish pump, some pods and add ons. You buy your own seed and add your own fertilzer (Miracle Gro or you can buy the Aeroplan liquid fertilizer at Canadian Tire). String an LED Grow light over it 50 bucks or so) and you have unlimited height

I found you have to paint the container black to stop algae growth.

It's not so much about wanting everything at a cheap price. I'm just wondering if 14" would be way too short to maintain a number of different herbs regularly vs. people who use these gardens just to start their seed off and transplanting later into soil. What have you been using yours for?

Were you able to get a decent haverst with them being planted fairly closely to each other or did you transplant once they germinated?

None were transplanted. For the tomatoes I do not use every pod and space them out a bit more.
