I'm hoping someone can help me.. I recently moved and don't have my outdoor garden setup so I thought I would try an AeroGarden setup this summer to hold me over. About two and a half weeks ago I started two cherry tomato pods, after about a week they germinated (yaay), however shortly after that the leaves slowly yellowed. I knew something was wrong but decided I would let it go for another couple days to make sure. By this time full leaves were yellowed, I opened up the top and it seemed like there was some brown alge spots on the water. I dumped the water cleaned it out and put new tap water in (Also added another 2 caps of nutrients to the water).
However today they are almost all brown, i'm positive they are goners. Anyone have an idea of what I can do differently if I try again?
I'm running the 17 hour lights and 24/7 on the pump.
It seems like our tap water here is hard so I'm wondering if I need to use distilled water.
Thanks so much!
