If you want to try a really simple, and what I consider one of the best DIY hydroponic growing systems, this is definitely the best and easiest DIY system for you.

Allow me to show you the AeroGarden by Miracle-Gro

This is what the starter system looks like when you receive it.

Easy Setup for a True Hydroponic System

Simple hydroponics

Main Unit-3 pieces

This system goes together quite easily. No tools are required.

The 3 pieces go together very easily without any tools.

I received 6 herb pods and the correct fertilizer for the hydroponic system with this model.

Seed pods are ready to go with the proper fertilizer.

Building a hydroponic system

All you need to bring to the table is your own water.

After you add the water to the unit’s base, you will add the included fertilizer for my unit that would be 2 cap fulls.

An important note here.

Many people feel that if 2 cap fulls are good, 3 are better

That was a very bad mistake. Over-fertilizing will impede the proper growth of your plants and will eventually kill them.

Follow instructions.

The pods go into their respective spots with included ‘caps’

All the pods are labeled so you may identify the plants while they are growing.

Plug-In Your DIY Growing System

Working hydroponic system

LED lights go on, and also a small air pump. You are a hydroponic gardener!

The pump is a very small device that pushes air through an airstone in the water well. This is needed so your plants do not ‘drown’.

It is quite quiet. Quieter than a fish tank pump.

The LED lights are programmed to go on and off as needed so your plants get all the necessary light they need.

LED lights are long-lasting, very efficient, and do not get hot at all.

You may place this almost anywhere in the house and even outside during warmer months as long as there is access to an electrical supply.

Indoor gardening

Lifting the background, you may see I have mine in my garage.

I live in South Florida, so I can get away with growing in the garage during winter. However, for those of you up north, your basement, laundry, and utility room will work.

Aero Garden 4 Weeks

Just 4 weeks from the start!

For a thought, some colorful models would look good even in your kitchen.

It will not require much of a shelf if you do not have tabletop space. Just need a nearby electrical outlet.

Get Growing!
