We received an Aerogarden 7 http://www.aerogarden.com/ for Christmas. We are very excited to try gardening indoors, and we are hoping that this will be a jump on healthier living.
We have set it up just a couple day ago, and I saw the Youtube video Grow Light Boosters Time Lapse: http://youtu.be/XKFhn4F6M1Y.
I decided to make my own.
Step 1: Get the Supplies
1. Cardboard box
3. Clear packing tape
4. Reflective foil.
5. Aerogarden (naturally)
Step 2: Cut the Cardboard and Size It
Then, cut a slit in the center of the back, so that the power cord goes through the box, and that the box is level.
Step 3: Secure the Foil and Set Into Place
I cut open the bag, cleaned it and used it for reflector material. I
taped the bag, along with some aluminum foil to the box while taking care to make sure it folded up around the Aerogarden.
Here it is, all set up. Wish us luck, please. I am hoping to get a bounty of herbs: basil, dill, cilantro, chives, parsley, thyme and mint.
