    could i just put them in my aerogarden from seeds and set them on kitchen counter until germination for their first sets of leaves with no fan and just lighting from the aerogarden.

    yes you can do that but you definatly want to get an air pump and an air stone and ad that to your Aerogarden ASAP. With an airstone the stock pump that comes with the aerogarden is obsolete. I have an Aerogarden 7 pod and I have grown a few small ladies in it but right now Im using it as a starter before I transfer into my DWC setup. I tried the stock aerogarden and found that the airstone setup is a must. But other than that you can leave it stock and forget about it. I germinate in mine and everything. Hope this helps. Anymore questions just ask. This is a great guide and I hope to help keep it updated.

    Unless you have no alternative i would stay away from the Aerogarden nutes is possible. If you have to use them start out at 1/4 strength and move up from there

    okay, first id like to say this guide was extreamley helpful but i was looking at some onf the new aero gardens and the model i was looking at had a digital timer in it its stated that it was for the lights. so do i still need the timer im in the prosess of procureing these itemes one by one. so im just trying to get my shoping list in order. and also i watched a vid on you tube with someone growing some ak in an wero garden it looked amazeing but she didnt seam to have any additonal lighting so my question is are the cfls requred?

    No the cfls are not required BUT if your going to grow from start to finsih in the AG then adding supplemental light is VERY helpful. If your only using the AG for cloning or starting seeds than the stock lights are just fine. BUt a good rule of thumb is the more light the better the plants will respond and that means a better yield because your ladies are happy.

    Okay, I need a little help. I have been growing for about 3 1/2 weeks. Ive got a nice little 5 inch plant. I planted Lowryder 2 seeds. I have been on a 24-0 light schedule. Should I change my light schedule yet? What should my pH be? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I just started with a 7 pod system and some seeds my buddy found in a field they seem to be sprouting fine I'm just wondering if there's a way to find out if you have male or a female plant in the early stages

    Hi this is just my opinion and others may think differently but here is my thing on watering leaves. I have grown many (many) plants and have never ever sprayed the leaves. The only place I put water is the dirt, the reason for this is plants get their water and nutrients from the root systems. Watering or spraying will hurt more than anything. As with outside plants, people make the mistake of watering the leave and many times the plants burn. Only water the dirt or what ever medium you are using. Hope this helps.

    This is my plan exactly only diff is I bought the ag extra led and the light boosters I have 4 CFLs but I'm thinking of using a 4' 2 bulb shop light with grow lights trying to figure out what will work better. Also using technoflora recipe for success nutes added air pump with 10" bubble wand. Auto purple big bud auto flowering strain. Does this sound right or am I way off
