An eerie light (which shuts of promptly every 16 hrs)...
P & I were wooed by this post into purchasing our very own Aerogrow. I like to refer to it as our counter-top hydroponic paradise-to-be. This thing gets great reviews, and I consistently blow $2.99 on basil, so if I can get this baby to produce both Italian and purple basil, it will pay for itself in the first harvest.
The "gourmet herb pack" appears above. There is a 100% sasisfaction guarantee with this product, which I really, really need. I have single-handedly killed a whole row of herbs given to us last year by my parents and killed multiple un-killable office plants. I did think I was able to keep a cactus alive (by doing aboslutely nothing to it), but then Pete told me he "waters it every now and then" so I can't even take credit for that. Long story short: My thumb is black. Not green. Not even chartreuse.
So.... we shall see. Will I be harvesting my own hydroponic herbs in just a few weeks? Is satisfaction really 100% guaranteed? Is this truly "an apartment dweller's paradise?"
I will let you know. Wish me luck.
