No green thumb? No problem. Tech is on your side! Grow herbs, veggies, flowers, and more all year long at home with the help of AeroGarden, the smart indoor hydroponic gardening system. Gardening just got a lot easier with this innovative system and accompanying app, which reminds you to water and feed your plants. Save time, money, and your sanity! Why an indoor garden? Protection from harsh weather and critters, the convenience of it being right there, and for urban dwellers, there’s just no room for a full fledge garden! AeroGarden is the ultimate convenient and space saving solution for those who don’t have room or access to an outdoor garden but really want to be a plant parent.

No soil, no mess, no problem.

Hydroponics come from two Greek words, which translate to water and labor. Hydroponic gardening is the concept of soilless gardening. Sounds a lot cleaner than traditional gardening, right? It’s cleaner and your plants can grow 30-50% faster in water than in soil. The use of hydroponics is beneficial due to to the extra oxygen which stimulates root growth and lets the plants absorb nutrients faster. Since water is being delivered directly to the roots, the plants don’t use as much energy to find and break down food, so they have more energy to grow faster and more.

It’s also ironic that even though it’s a system centered on using water, hydroponic gardening uses considerably less water than soil gardening! This concept sounds like a very futuristic approach to gardening, but it actually isn’t all that new. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Floating Gardens of China both used this system. Countries like Holland, Germany, and Australia have also used hydroponics for crop production.
