How it works

From Plant to Plate - Fast, Safe, Convenient.

Indoor hydroponic gardening allows plants to grow 5x faster than soil without any herbicides, pesticides or GMOs - no sun, soil or skill required! Grow fresh herbs, veggies and more on your countertop, and enjoy them at your table in a matter of weeks.

How Does an AeroGarden Grow Plants?

AeroGarden models make use of a growing method called Hydroponics to produce optimal labor-free results. Hydroponics is a system for growing plants in water that’s mixed with plant food. Instead of growing in soil, the plants grow in a rich nutrient solution that delivers a consistent supply of food directly to each plant’s roots.

Each AeroGarden unit is designed for an automatically regulated hydroponic growing experience. All you need to do is add water and the provided nutrients to watch your plants flourish before your very eyes!

Why Use Hydroponics Instead Soil?

Hydroponic gardening lets you enjoy all the benefits of home-grown veggies using less space and less water than soil growing. This method also yields a number of distinct advantages over traditional soil growth including the following:

1. Faster Growth and Higher Yield 

– Plants grown hydroponically can grow up to 5x faster than their soil-bound counterparts, and can be positioned more closely together to produce more food per square foot.

2. Water Conserving 

– Hydroponic systems use less water than soil-based growing methods.

3. Space Saving 

– Hydroponic setups require less space since plants can be grown closer together and can even be stacked vertically.

4. Environmental Impact 

– Since most hydroponic systems are indoors, they allows growers to cut down on pesticides, herbicides, and other harmful deterrents like bird nets.

5. More Control 

– Gardeners can easily make adjustments to plant growth factors like nutrients, temperature, and light with hydroponic systems.

6. No Weeding 

– With hydroponic systems, there’s no open soil inviting windborne seeds or invasive weeds to make a home.

Easiest garden I've ever had! I'm enjoying fresh lettuce every day. No bunnies, no bugs, easy to use. The machine tells you when to add water and food. All you have to do is give them a little CO2 when you talk to them.

Kickstart Your Growing Obsession


AeroGardens are designed to help you grow your own herbs, vegetables, salad greens or flowers at home. Our Seed Pod Kits are compatible with every model of AeroGarden. Planting with Seed Pods is fun and easy! Just insert the pre-seeded pods in your garden, add water, and the patented, specially formulated Liquid Nutrients. Most plants germinate within 7-14 days, are ready for harvesting in 4-6 weeks, and will keep producing continuous harvests for up to 6 months and longer. Indoor gardening can’t get any tastier or simpler!

We back all of our seed pods with a Germination Guarantee and will replace any pod that fails to sprout after 21 days. Please send an email through our Contact Us form and include your name, address, phone number, and name of your pod(s) that didn’t germinate so we can send you a replacement and help troubleshoot.

Different types of plants take different amounts of time to germinate and grow. In general, we’ve found these germination timeframes to be consistent:

Flowers: 7-12 days

Salads: 5-8 daysHerbs: 5-15 days

Fruiting vegetables (such as tomatoes and peppers): 7-14 days

If any of your seed pods don’t germinate after 21 days, contact us so we can send out a replacement for you under our Germination Guarantee.

Growing in an AeroGarden is similar to growing plants in any environment. Plants have a lifespan and a life cycle as they grow and mature. The type of plant you are growing and the tending and harvesting it receives will impact the life expectancy of any plant.

Flower varieties typically grow for 4-5 months and can last much longer depending on tending and care.

Lettuces & Greens typically grow for about 4 months.

Herbs typically grow for about 3-4 months and can last 6 months or more. Some herbs, such as basil, can last longer than that, especially with regular pruning and harvesting.

Fruiting vegetable plants (such as tomatoes or peppers) will start to flower and set fruit after they reach a level of maturity. The average lifespan for fruiting vegetables is about 12 months. With continued tending and care, fruiting vegetables can certainly maintain plant growth for longer.

Our seeds are sourced from large and small vendors from around the world. Many are heirloom seeds, organic sources are chosen when available, and GMO seeds are never used. AeroGarden uses the same proven, patented nutrients that we’ve used since the beginning – the result of 6 years of intensive testing in our grow rooms. Our nutrients contain no harmful pesticides or herbicides. AeroGarden Liquid Plant Food is derived from minerals that life on earth needs to flourish, in exactly the right amounts for your plants, derived from sources that ensure high levels of consistency and purity.
