Most 7 pod AeroGardens are equipped with a 24 hour light setting. Over the next few tips we'll cover how to get there with each model. 24 hour light settings are great for early growth of most plants. If your garden is in a place where you can handle all the light, try the 24 hour settings for the first month of growth with lettuce, tomatoes, herbs or garden starts. Plants grow more bushily and more compactly with more light. It is important to take the OFF the 24 hour setting after about the first month or the plants will get tired (and tomatoes may refuse to set fruit).
