I have been eating lettuce since mid December. I think it grows just as well as the supplied plant food. I use about 1 tablespoon for 4 liters of water every 3-4 weeks.
    Wow have they ever started surge pricing Aerogarden plant food since Aerogarden stopped selling directly in Canada. Thanks for the heads up on the Schmidt products sold at Dollarama. **Also keep an eye out for hydroponic products at Canadian Tire and Walmart** ...you can sometimes get good deals.

    Thanks

    The lights are Aerogarden. I bought one of them when we first moved here as there is not window that gets direct sunlight and my wife missed fresh herbs always on hand. I then bought another one when i volunteered to do vegetable seedlings for my daughter when she bought a house and wanted to have a vegetable garden. The boot trays fit the basses of the lights perfectly and i dont have to worry about water running out onto the floor

    Excellent. I'll keep an eye out for a deal on one or two. I have a grow light that fans out but tomatoes like a lot of light. Have you tried Jalapenos yet? I'm finding great success with those indoors.

    I never even thought to try jalapenos but will definitely now. I find that basil (especially the leaf variety) grow like weeds using the Kratky method. My wife uses it to keep us in a supply of hummus and white bean dip.

    When I was in the Amazing Home Store in Ancaster in March, I recall seeing one endcap with something Aerogarden stamped on it. Packages or boxes. Did not know about the cessation of products sold directly in Canada. Odd considering the two pictures above show jugs stating Made in Canada on the labels.
    This store mostly carries Amazon items/returns so that would explain the Aerogarden items.

    Perhaps a company bought the distribution rights to the brand's line of products?
