Now have two Ultras working away in my 'office'. Got one and planted the salad and then decided what the heck, got another and added the mega cherry tomatoes to the mix. Very easy to set up and maintain. FAST! growth, WOW this is amazing, the salad is doing nicely and the tomatoes are thick, leafy and putting out flowers after only 42 days. Thought it would hurt them to prune so soon, but wow, they do kick off after a few snips.

After reading reviews and chatter, I purchased the mylar screens, the rinse/refill & the "oxygen booster kit". Will install all these this weekend before the next feeding.

I found that the upland cress will take over if you don't chop it back, and while it's tasty, I'd rather have more of the rocket. It's great to have some spicy greens to bump up the flavor of otherwise boring leaf lettuce.

All in all, a worthwhile purchase. (Posted over a month ago)

I purchased two of these Ultra over the year. First one bought on May, 2013. Unfortunately all three of the grow light burnt out after just 7 month. These light doesn't last long I was hoping at least 12 month. Buying a new set of grow light ain't cheap. I hope there is an option for buying just the LED grow light rather then the complete system.

On black Monday I was happen to see an Ultra on sale from the Amazon.com web site. I couldn't pass the saving and place an order with an option of one day shipping. It arrived the following day. Unpack, assemble, and getting it growing right a way. I notice there is different between this one and the other one that I received earlier in May of this year. It seem the older one without the Miracle Gro logo seem to lost it data if unplug or power shortage. So if your power went out then everything have to be manual input(time, days plant, nutrient cycle).

Overall Ultra is well design and built, very stiff compare to other aerogarden. Last but not least it does work. I was skeptical at first but after 7 month of growing basil I can confirm that it'll grow. And grow it does, faster then growing in the soil. For me fresh basil is hard to come by in the winter. With Aerogarden Ultras it summer all over again. I can't wait to try the new strawberry bowl. I still waiting for it to arrive sign*...to be continue (Posted over a month ago)

Hi Sokha -

Thanks for the good review! The reason we recommend replacing the Grow Lights after 6 months of use is that they have lost a good amount of their growing power. Keeping the same lights for 12 months is a real push, and you'll see it plants growing slowly, pale and thin for lack of light....

I've had the Ultra for 8 days now and it seems to be running good. The light does heat up the room itself though. Reaches as hot as 85 degrees, great for winter. You can really feel the heat coming off the bulbs if you place your hands under them. I actually own two AeroGardens, both in the same room. Also, the bulbs flicker sometimes.. is this normal? It's been doing it since day one. It happens 2-3 times a day.

The LCD light is annoying also, I found no way to turn it down or off. It's like a very bright night light at night. I would prefer if there was a way to turn it off, instead I put cloth over it at night so I can sleep. (Posted over a month ago)
Customer Service Response:
Hi Raymond - Are you sure the ULTRA lights by themselves are heating your room to 85 degrees? We've never heard of that, and since they each draw only 26 watts it doesn't seem possible. Please give us a call about that: 800-476-9669. And when you call, talk a little more about this flickering (like, how long do they flicker - a second? a minute?) Thanks!

My husband bought me the Aerogarden 7 the end of June for my birthday....by mid August I bought a second and came on this site today to purchase a couple more for the winter months. My husband and I use A LOT of herbs which are hard to grow at our high altitude here in Wyoming. My herbs produce so much that I give a lot away to grateful friends. I'm looking forward to purchasing the Ultra when it comes out. I highly recommend.

I had two ultras. I really liked how they performed. I also own 3 Extras so can compare the units. I love how the ultras can extend in small increments. I also like the bowl shape better because it doesn't tilt the seed pods like the edges of the Extra. My plants did very well. I do however, like the trellis system better on the Extra. The Ultra's "hoop" can only be placed on the top extender, so when I extend it out further, it is easy to damage the plant. It is flimsy, and never did close properly in the front. My main issue with the Ultra is you cannot over water them. I had to travel, and my husband watered them....unfortunately the entire electrical board shorted out of both my gardens. It was a very expensive mistake to make so please, please be careful! (Posted over a month ago)

This garden has a fancy schmancy computer to keep track of all the parameters. Unfortunately my unit loses everything if there is any power disruption so all the the hype is worthless. from what I gather I'm not alone.

Additionally their new trellis is worthless. A flimsy piece of plastic. In my unit under the weight of the plant the trellis is bent down like a pretzel.

if they fixed these two problems it could be a great unit.

I do have a replacement base due sometime in the next month or so so we'll see.

At this point I can't recommend this unit. (Posted over a month ago)

Hi Nelson,

There was a programming bug in first generation ULTRAs that sometimes allowed stored data to be lost. This has been fully fixed in our new production V 3.08. The new trellis is meant to wrap around plants and keep them supported, however it is very important to place it at the correct time so plants aren't hanging on it, which does result in a bit of drooping. Hopefully your replacement garden is working well!

If you can afford the extra money this is really worth every penny. The tomatoes are growing like crazy and I don't have to do much of anything except wiggle the plants to pollinate them,add water and nutrients. No more keeping track of anything..this system does it all for you. I am going to start some peas in this garden after the tomatoes or perhaps get another one exclusively for salad greens. My trick for keeping the salad greens crisp is putting them in ice water for an hour or so and then into a salad spinner...works great. I love this garden even more than my old veggie pro which has 8 month old pepper plants still producing. This Ultra is really much easier to get along with than the veggie pro, paticularly avoiding the issue of lights comming on unpredictably and a failing pump. I fixed the pump issue with a cheap aquarium pump and it works fine,again the peppers are 8 months and still going strong. But this Ultra has it beat. The plants grow faster and produce more fruit. Yes, I am in ULTRA LOVE! (Posted over a month ago)

Bought an Ultra in December. A Lady Bug and Bumble Bee in February and April another Ultra. I can't get over how some seeds germinate in just two days. Very impressed. I grew herbs from December to the end of March and decided to try the starter system. I thought cleaning out the Ultra would be a mess. Not at all. Rinsed everything off and that was it. Now we did use distilled water the whole time so maybe that made a difference. These are so awesome! (Posted over a month ago)

I am new to this, so I just started a week ago. My pump was so quiet I was worried it wasn't working, and I accidently reset it 2 days into the grow cycle. Anyway, it is working fine and my plants are all doing well. I am looking forward to the fruits of the "labor" (not laborious at all!) (Posted over a month ago)

I have two Ultras. I have never owned any other Aerogarden. They have both been producing for 60 days. I have various lettuces in one and herbs in the other. I have to harvest just about every day if I want to keep the lights on the lowest setting. We have plenty of lettuce for salads and sandwiches, but I'm feeding only two adults. I can get 2 small bowls of salad every day. I prune the herbs hard, too, and have more than I can possibly use. I have taken to just chopping and putting a big mix of whatever I have into just about everything I cook. I bought the spring loaded pruning shears and use them every day. Both gardens really require me to add water every day. I can add 16 ounces every day to top them off. The water reminder has never triggered. I guess I don't let it get low enough. To make the lettuce and herbs "crisp" and last longer in the fridge, I put them in a big bowl, add a couple tablespoons of water, shake them around and then drain the water off and put them in the fridge. Without this, they wilt. My opinion is that you don't need any special herb keeper or salad keeper. I don't especially like the mustard/spicy taste of some of the lettuces. I'm glad I tried them, but when I reorder I'm going to just get the salad greens pods. The baby greens pods and chinese cabbageare not good producers and the produce can be tough. The arugula is a rapid grower, even when heavily pruned and tries to force me to raise the lights, but I resist. I start my outdoor garden plants by lining them up around the outsides of the Aerogardens so that they get the benefit of all the light. I also have two large potted tomato plants that I sit in a chair next to the table the Aerogarden Ultras are on and they are producing tomatos off the light. My electric bill jumped about $10 (it seems) as these things put out enough light to be a homing beacon for a satellite. They are pretty quiet, but not silent. (Posted over a month ago)

I am a hobby gardener and know a couple of clients who have ourchased gardens. I was impressed at the ease of use and cleaning as well ad reliability. I decided to buy the Ultra model and have enjoyed each day watching the impressive growth of my herbs. I also ordered a pack of the reflective mylar shades and am astounded how the growth rate is SIGNIFICANTLY increased. Highly recommend it as its worth the price. I cant wait to stat my veggie garden for outside and tomatoes/peppers also inside this season. I live in a small condo, can increase the amount of plants I can grow and absolutely love this product. I had one issue with two seed pods but the customer service rep gladly shipped replacements which arrived within 7 days.
great product and great support.....PERIOD. (Posted over a month ago)

This is my first AeroGarden. I was going back and forth on which model to buy. I thought the MyGarden display would be nothing special and kind of a waste. But, then, I took the plunge. What convinced me to purchase the Ultra, considering the extra cost was all of the improvements which were made. I read the 100 improvements information more than a few times to finally determine that this was the best machine for me. AeroGrow did a great job of designing this machine and the quality is great. It's really nice to be able to buy something that well-made and lives up to the hype. My wife was very skeptical that the AeroGarden would perform as well as the photos. Now, after using it for over 2 weeks, I think my garden looks just as good, if not better, than any of the photos that I have seen on the AeroGarden website. Buy this one, you won't be disappointed. In fact, I'm so happy with it, I'm buying my 2nd. Thanks AeroGrow. (Posted over a month ago)

Santa brought me a GARDEN!!!!! Hooray!! This was SO easy to set up (directions are pretty clear) and I have high hopes for tomatoes in a few months. That being said, the trellis was broken when I pulled it out of the box. That is the only reason for the four stars. I plan on making contact with customer service in the morning to see if I can get that part replaced. The unit takes up about as much counter space as my kitchenaid mixer. It looks "nice and neat" and blends right in with my other "traditional" potted plants living in my kitchen. I ordered the tomato grow pack. It has two plant "pods". I was expecting more pods, but after reviewing the photos of other gardens growing tomatoes it appears that two is the proper number at one time in this machine. I love the fact the garden will tell me when to water and feed it and the timer will turn the lights off and on. I get to just sit back and enjoy the show! Just FYI, the light coming from the garden is BRIGHT and must stay on 16 hours a day (in the begining) for the tomatoes. You can adjust the time the garden turns on and off. I have it turning on when the kids get up from school. (Posted over a month ago)
