Roots in the Air
Aeroponics, directly translated as air working, is a high-tech improvement
over hydroponics, where roots are suspended in air instead of in soil or water.
Although it sounds like science fiction, its a technology with ancient history
dating back to the time of the pyramids. One of the earliest examples was the
Babylonians who created a verdant oasis of cascading gardens known as The Hanging Gardens
of Babylon, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, by utilizing complex chain
pumps, manually operated around the clock to deliver nutrient-rich water from the
This ancient technology, refined and improved through the
years, is now used commercially worldwide and is featured at The Land exhibit
at Walt Disney World® Resort Epcot® Center. AeroGrow International is the
first company to convert this high-yield agri-technology into a low-cost, easy-to-use
The AeroGarden uses patent-pending
rainforest-in-a-box technology, where plant roots are grown directly into the
air in a 100% humid, oxygen-rich environment with a consistent, nourishing rainfall of
organic-based nutrients with no dirt, pesticides or soil contaminants. This
oxygen-rich aeroponic delivery results in stunning growth rates up to five
times faster than plants grown in soil.
Fast, Foolproof and Fully Automated
The AeroGardens simple, plug and grow system guarantees 100%
germination and gardening success. The AeroGarden is easy to set up in under 10 minutes,
often germinates seeds in less than 24 hours, and can go from seed to salad in
as little as two and a half weeks. The rapid re-growth generates continual, ongoing daily
harvests for months.
Extensive consumer testing has made The AeroGarden so simple
that anyone, from brown-thumbed dreamers to experienced master gardeners, can use it to
grow successfully all year-round. The plug and grow bio-dome seed pods are
simply dropped into the system, water and time-release nutrient tablets are added, and the
fully automated smart garden takes care of the rest, automatically adjusting
the integrated grow lights and nutrient delivery cycles to maximize plant growth and

|Frequently Asked Questions?
What is aeroponics?
Aeroponics is a dirt-free growing method in which plant roots are suspended in air within
a 100 percent humidity, highly oxygenated growing chamber. Because the roots are bathed
with ideal levels of nutrients, water, and oxygen, plants grow significantly faster, are
healthier, and have a higher nutrient content than plants grown in soil.
How big is the AeroGarden?
The AeroGarden has the footprint of a breadbox and is sized to fit conveniently under most
cabinets. The AeroGarden measures 16 inches long by 10 1/2 inches wide by 15 1/2 inches
high when it is first set up with the lights at the lowest possible setting, and 21 inches
high at the highest level. Currently the AeroGarden comes in only one size.
What can I grow?
Salad greens, gourmet herbs, chili peppers, cherry tomatoes, cascading petunias, and
several types of basil.
Can I grow using my own seeds?
The Aerogarden has been designed to work with special seed kits that have been
optimized for growing in the Aerogarden. For optimal results, these seed kits must
How much time do I need to spend taking care of my
Approximately 5 minutes a month. You will need to occasionally add water, drop in two
nutrient tablets, and provide minimal tending to your plants. Most of your time will be
spent harvesting and enjoying delicious, fresh food.
How long can the AeroGarden be left unattended? What
if I travel a lot?
A planted AeroGarden can be left unattended for up to two weeks, depending on the type of
plants you are growing and their maturity.
What kind of light bulbs does it use?
The AeroGarden uses full-spectrum compact fluorescent bulbs exclusively designed for the
optimal amount and type of light needed for robust, healthy plant growth.
When can I begin harvesting?
You can begin to harvest lettuce grown in your Aerogarden in as little as 3 weeks!
You pick off the outer leaves, and the plants continue to grow new inner leaves, this way
you can continue to harvest these plants for several months!
