I have herbs going in my aero garden6 space saver and the light says on for 16 hours. how long does it stay on for vegies, and salad greens? The reason I am asking is because I have a few tomato pods and salad pod kits. I was thinking of making my own areo garden and just use those pods. Because my only aero garden has herbs growing in it now. I just need to know how long to have my timer for the lights to go on and off for tomatoes or salad greens.

Oh thank you!! That is just what I wanted. I have already made my light setup, all adjustable. Just need to get some air stones and make my container for the pods. I also got some Quick Grow Nutrients ( http://www.quickgrownutrients.com/ ) I am trying them out in my aero garden now on my herbs. I opened the package of pods for the tomatoes and the greens and there nutrient tablets look like they got wet!! Hopefully my quick grow nutrients will work just fine. I bought a 2 pound bag and that will make close to 200 gallons of solution!!

Unfortunately some of the AG nutrients do get wet.  This is the AeroGrow info on them "http://www.aerogrow.com/community/index.php/your-plants-faq/62-other/109-LMynutrienttabletswerecrumbledorwetwhenIopenedthem.html".  You may have heard that they are phasing in liquid nutrients, which is a good thing.

Hope you'll give us some feedback on how the Quick Grow Nutrients work out for you!  Smiley
