    I've got 4 CFLs 2 are 2700 and 2 are 5000 plus a 75 watt and 120 watt grow spotlight bulbs also I'm using the new grow light boosters from aerogarden looks like thin reflective mylar with the aerogarden extra LED do you think this is enough extra lighting or should I add more

    Does anyone know how close the Led hood can be to the canopy, what if the leaves touch the Led bulbs ?

    I was keeping mine about 2 inches above and I got spots on leaves someone told me LED is supposed to be 18" above plants. I only had room to set it at 12" above and it worked great. Good luck

    Awesome Steve... I just started with the aerogarden led started 2 with bag seeds,but have some lowryder seeds fem because I figured they will be short. My 2 plants in there now have been in for 30 days and I will switch to 12/12to keep them short...I hope....but I like this unit can have a constant supply!,

    Yes they made one aero with anairstone the newer ones do not have that they use a pump. I have the ultra led all settings can be customized as far as nutrient,pump cycle,light cycle. Pretty easy..

    But the pumps get clogged from the roots that's why they say turn ag pump off. And use an outside air pump with a stone. Also you can set up additional lights with cfl's on the side to give more light I just grew a northern lights in my extra LED. It got to be 3 foot tall I unattached the led hood and hung it from ceiling. Then I draped mylar from back and sides for reflectors it worked pretty good. I just harvested beginning of the week. I've got an afghani kush plant in there that I started at same time as the NL but its not done yet so I reverted it back to full nutes after my flush I'm gonna give it a week or 2 to see if it gets any bigger before I pull it and clean unit out for next grow of blue mystic seeds I just ordered this week. The ag is a great way to learn from. I'm saving now to get a 4 bucket dwc system going. Good luck

    I dont know if this is the right place for this post... But I just wanna make a statement.... I just grew my first hydro grow of northern lights female seeds from Herbie's seed shop and I've gotta say thank you very much to everyone on this site that gave me opininions and advice during my grow. I didn't get a huge yield at all but definitely great quality big time at this moment in time I've dried my harvest for 10 days and cured for 9 days put some in my Davinci vaporizer and samples.... I've gotta honestly say I've been smoking weed since 1974 7th grade by the way I'm 54 years old now and this is definitely if not absolutely the best weed I've ever consumed... So again thank you very much to all of you that gave me feedback, opinions, or advice it is very much appreciated... That was also in an aerogarden next grow of blue mystic will be in a five gallon bucket dwc system thanks again everyone couldn't have succeeded with out all the help... I LOVE THIS community

    It came out great after 10 days hanging upside down and 3 weeks curing in Mason jar it kicks ass some of the best I've smoked since I started in 1974. Although I'll admit I harvested too early I would've gotten alot more if I waited. But I learned for next grow. And thanks again to all who helped me here.
