It's Fun to watch the plants grow. In just 5 days, one flower started to bloom beautifully. Unfortunately, I had to remove the flower due to nutrient issues of the plant. All 10 plants that were planted are growing! Money well spent, I can't wait to pick these fresh strawberries! (Posted on 10/31/14)

My kit is 39 days old. I have tens of flowers but just one berry. I have done nothing other than water and nutrients. Was there anything i should've done to have more berries? (Posted over a month ago)
Customer Service Response:
Be sure to pollinate the flowers. The most effective method is to use an electric toothbrush to touch all the blossoms and spread the pollen, but you can also use a cotton swab to touch each blossom. A small fan placed in front of the plants will also help to spread the pollen, which produces fruit. Customer service is available to help if needed, give us a call at 1-800-476-9669.

my second batch of strawberries have done very well. I didn't want to use the old coconut fiber from the old one in case there was an issue so I used clay pebbles instead. Only been planted a couple weeks, and I have flowers appearing. This is fun
Customer service was very responsive. (Posted over a month ago)

Even though my strawberry plants were delivered in the midst of an extreme cold spell- they took off growing like crazy! All 10 plants have have sprouted-- they are all so healthy, I'm sorry I have to pull 4 of them to keep from overcrowding. My first flower appeared in one week! It has now been one month, there are about a dozen tiny strawberries, and many flowers! The two bags of coconut fibers were plenty-- the key is to soak the first bag in water, then add the remaining the next day- a little at a time.
One thing to keep an eye on, is the water level-- I have to refill almost every day. The water sound is also very pleasing- just a few minutes every hour-- relaxing. (Posted over a month ago)

I own 3 systems I am disappointed in the strawberries failed to grow they started to grow and then all died the water instructions is not good for these the time frame recommended is not on the system not good directions for growing these sorry all of my other plants grow very well I really wanted to do the strawberries but no such luck the chips also get little flying bugs due to to much moisture however the lowest setting is 5/55 what I would like to know what to do and can you order the strawberries with out the bowl I would like to try again with better water times (Posted over a month ago)

My plants are growing every day. No fruit yet, but starting to flower.

My only complaint is the amount of coco chunks given. I had to search and search for find more to buy. It would be great if Aerogarden provided more or sold additonal bags. The size bag I ended up buying was huge, but that was the only size I could find.

Definitely enjoying the garden! (Posted over a month ago)

I wonder if maybe the Grow Bowl wasn't packed right - they come with two bags of coco that is PLENTY!

I bought 4 of these grow bowls/strawberry kits. The package arrived opened and only two bowls arrived. Aerogarden replaced and sent new strawberry plants -- the others were frozen. I set the bowls up as directed. Planted all of the strawberry plants. After all that only 7 strawberry plants grew out of 4 packets. After about two weeks, I noticed mites growing on three plants. I sprayed as directed but the plants died. Today I put everything in a garbage bag, sterilized the bowls and gave up. What a disappointment! I own 13 aerogardens and this has been the biggest disappointment of all. I am out $120 -- not to mention the dozens of gallons of distilled water I used trying to keep them alive -- that is another thing -- every two days I had to use 2 gallons of distilled water!!!! I could buy a lot of strawberries (organic) at that, for that kind of money.
Just a bad investment. Be careful and think a long time before you buy this item. (Posted over a month ago)

i ordered 2 kits, one of them is Ok but the other kit was not good at all .. i mean the strawberry crowns, so i end up having only 6 plants ok out of the whole 2 kits, I plant the 6 crowns and its growing like a charm but i called the aerogarden costumer support and informed them about the issue and i have pointed that the shipping took so long to reach me with a life plant, so they have shipped 10 crowns now on the way via a faster shipping method....

thannks aerogarden for the nice good support. (Posted over a month ago)

So far, no luck with the plants growing and I have a lot of green mildew on the wood chips (Posted over a month ago)
Customer Service Response:
Strawberry crowns are very perishable - that's why we ship them with a guarantee! If they don't grow, we replace them.
Green mildew (algae) is a sign that the wood chips are wet; we recommend mounding the chips up toward the middle of the bowl so that the top will stay dry.

Def. a fun investment for the price

Pros
* Comes with easy to setup new grow bowl including the coconut fibres, strawberry roots and instructions
* Seem to be flourishing so far (no fruit yet but growing really nice)
* Pretty ingenious way of irrigating the roots without drowning them

Cons
* Requires the higher end models to fit in
* The 'add water' message comes in really fast compared to other growing mediums since the grow bowl takes up most of the room of where the water would normally be


My main concern with it is what to do if you're going on vacation. The new blue water bottle they sell won't work (I believe) to keep the water level high and I have to add water almost every 2 days because of how quickly it evaporates from the roots

Otherwise totally worth it! (Posted over a month ago)
