I recently received an Aerogarden 7 as a gift and I have to say it’s pretty amazing. The only downside to this machine is that it’s using expensive grow light bulbs with a specific connector that is hard to find at your local hardware store. I found out that it’s easy to use regular CFL in your Aerogarden. You don’t have to modify the Aerogarden in any way like I have seen some people doing. I simply used some cheap adapters. You can get a pair of those for about 2.50$ on ebay. I have used them for a few days and they work fine. These adapters can save you a lot of money!

Check the video for a complete review and to see the difference between the original growing lamps and the one I could get from the hardware store.

Step 1: Get the Adapters and CFL Bulbs

I’m using Sylvania CFL as a replacement (100W equivalent, day light 6500K).

The adapters are compatible with any regular CFL bulbs and with Aerogardens using #100340 or 100629 lamps; AeroGarden 3, AeroGarden 3SL, AeroGarden 6, SpaceSaver 6, AeroGarden 7, AeroGarden ULTRA, and the Miracle-Gro AeroGarden EXTRA.

Step 2: Plug It and Enjoy!
