Aerogarden experiments

Hey, im new to the aero garden, and have a few questions. 

As of now i have lime, lemon, and a rosemary in there.  I want to experiment with palm, ginger, banana and other types of seed.  Im assuming I wil have to remove the plants before they get more then say, 2 leaves ( in the case of tree seeds).  IF anyone has any experience growing these or other things in their aero gardens please share yu experience

Very cool, Canadianplant - I

Very cool, Canadianplant - I hope you show us these projects!

The Aerogarden usually excels for seed-starting, for sure. If going to soil, I usually transplant while the root's still mostly in the pod sponge.

I've had a lot of trouble with mildewy/whatever seeds and pod sponges. I often soak 'em in a very weak H2O2 solution (hydrogen peroxide - just the pharmacy first aid stuff), like maybe a teaspoon per cup of water. It helps.

Thanks for the replies!! So

Thanks for the replies!!

So far, im going to use it for germinating and starting yes.  Im pretty sure ill have to be careful, becasue of the transplant shock, and, not to mention the root difference between hydroponic and soil roots..

I have sabal minor seeds, as well as 2 kinds of trachy ( hardy palm trees), as well as 5 kinds of banana seeds, and one type of ginger.  Not to mention the bunch of fruit seeds i have.

 

I just checked the lemon seed... look slike mould already ,,,,, i need to clean them better....

Welcome, Canadianplant! Very

Welcome, Canadianplant!

Very cool seed-starting project - I hope to hear how it works out for you! No, I haven't heard of anyone doing that before. I know rosemary dislikes being watered, so that'll have to go, just like the trees, once it's started.

Do you have a greenhouse for growing these trees?

 Hi CP,   Sorry, no

 Hi CP,

  Sorry, no experience with those.  Are you using the ag for starting the seeds and then transplanting?
