Additional Supplies & Accessories
We've put together a helpful list of accessories and supplies that our community of growers like to use with their Airgardens.
Our Dolly allows you to easily move your Airgarden, rotate it to give all your plants equal sun throughout the week, and keeps it off the ground which keeps your reservoir warm. It's also super strong and can hold up to 300kg (when filled with water, the Airgarden weighs approximately 150kg).
The grow plug tray allows you to nurture seeds into seedlings, ready to transplant into your Airgarden. A single grow plug tray consists of 45 coco-coir plugs. Our grow plugs are proprietary to the Airgarden and are the only medium that can be used to grow plants in the system.
Not everyone has the time, patience or desire to grow their seedlings, so we've got you covered. You can purchase seedlings from us that arrive to your door ready to transfer immediately into your Airgarden.
Our Nutrient Solution comes with your Airgarden purchase but as you move through new crops, you’ll eventually need some more. One purchase typically lasts 4-6 months and it is the only nutrient solution that can be used with the Airgarden.
In aeroponics, the level of "pH" in your reservoir is critical for success. You can monitor and adjust your pH levels easily with this kit. The kit gives you everything you need to test the levels and adjust your pH using the pH UP and pH DOWN solutions provided.
Although the Airgarden is far less susceptible, an anti pest net is ideal for protecting and covering your Airgarden plants, ensuring they're not susceptible to any insects, birds, possums or other pests. It is also helpful in protection your Airgarden from extreme weather conditions like wind and hail.
If you are placing your Airgarden in an area that receives full sunlight for longer than 5-6 hours per day and doesn't receive any shade, it is recommended to use something to provide some protection to your plants during the hottest times of the day. Am inexpensive beach umbrella is perfect for this.
Plants love consistent, controlled growing conditions - so it's ideal to protect the water in your base reservoir from extreme conditions. If you're in a cold climate where the daily temperature is consistently below 15º celsius, installing a simple, inexpensive heater in the base will keep your plants warm and thriving throughout winter.
If you notice any issues with the health of your leaves, Eco-fungicide is a registered organic fungicide that rapidly kills external fungal growth and spores. It is effective on a broad range of plants and completely safe to use on fruits and vegetables.
If you notice yellow butterflies flying around your plants - don't be fooled by their pretty wings! They're a sign of nasty caterpillars. Yates Caterpillar Killer is a certified organic product that effectively controls caterpillars. 100% organic also means there is no withholding period (edibles can be eaten straight away) and it is safe for non-target insects (e.g. bees, ladybirds, birds, fish, mammals, pets).
For only $28, an extra propagation tray and lid can be a handy thing to have if you're regularly growing your own seedlings for the Airgarden, making it easier grow multiple seedlings with different germination times if you want to avoid using tupperware.
If you live in an apartment and don't have access to an outdoor tap, this indoor tap adaptor makes it possible to hook a hose up to any indoor tap so you can easily re-fill and water your Airgarden (a large watering can also does the trick, but will just mean a few trips back and forth!).
If you're growing your own seedlings but don't have access to 6 hours of sunlight per day (e.g. Melbourne during winter), an LED Grow Light is the perfect solution. These lights allow you to grow seedlings indoors regardless of whether your home receives direct sunlight or not.
