Tips contributed by Jessi Jordan, as per conversations with Aerogrow customer support:
- If you don't have a starter nutrient for starting a new AG garden, use 1/2 of a growth nutrient. It's the exact same pill, just the growth nutrient tabs contain twice as much as the starter nutrient.
- The nutrient tablets attract humidity and can sometimes leak out some of the nutrients that your plants need. If any sticky or wet residue appears on the nutrient bags, be sure to rinse the bag out in the water bowl. Rinsing the bag in the water ensures that the nutrients are in the water bowl, not stuck to the bag.
- Keep nutrients in the freezer to prevent #2 from happening.
