After many days of my seeds only partially sprouting, I started to get quite antsy. I was obsessing over germination estimates for each plant type and frantically staring at empty pods. Just when I thought all was lost, the new tip notification popped up on my AeroGarden with this bit of reassurance. How did it know this was just what I needed?
We don't leave grow domes on forever?
The part of me that was a kid in the 90's wants to offer up a huge DUUUUUH right now. But another part of me is glad they're encouraging recycling.
Like Gizmo, don't feed after midnight
In my limited experience of caring for things (myself, rabbits, boyfriend, plants), it has been my experience that only the things that are human can tolerate more nutrients than necessary. The non-humans are too vain and don't want to compromise their girlish figures.
This is the ABSOLUTE WORST!
After going through all of this effort, you're saying I have to MURDER some plants? Why, oh why did I ever plant more than one seed?
Yes...that is true
This was clearly written by a distant and poetically-challenged relative of Dr. Seuss.
Hydroponic gardening uses water?
Okay AeroGarden, this isn't my first rodeo... I know I have to check the water level pretty frequently. You'd think as it's been a few weeks of me filling you up regularly, you'd know by now that I get it and these constant reminders are a tad unnecessary, don't you thi... oh crap, it's out of water again?!?
Is it a problem if I planted giant tomatillo plants next to my pepper plants? I mean, they're only twice the size....
Right... you mean those tiny yellow flowers don't magically turn into tomatillos and peppers? Okay here's the problem - a bee has much better dance moves than I do. How am I going to compete with that?
I have not begun to see small tomatoes form for two reasons. 1) I'm technically growing tomatillos and peppers, not tomatoes. 2) I maybe didn't heed your last advice about being a bee... how do I do that again?
