Weekly Maintenance For Your Airgarden

By :tom bauer
Weekly Maintenance For Your Airgarden

To keep your Airgarden thriving and producing healthy, massive harvests, there are some essential checks you should be doing each week, all of which are super easy and take less than 10 minutes. If you prefer video instructions, you can watch our video guides here.

Keep the reservoir full & check your water levels 1-2 times per week

Your reservoir will need refilling 1 to 2 times per week (once with new seedlings or cooler weather, twice with larger plants and warmer weather).

Add nutrients once per week

For every litre of water you replenish, add 2ml of the Part 1 Solution and 2ml of the Part 2 Solution. Always add Part 1 and Part 2 nutrients separately, stirring your reservoir in between.

Check & balance your PH levels twice per week

Use the pH tester kit provided to test and balance, aiming for pH levels between 5.5 to 6.5. 

Check for pests & monitor leaf health

While the Airgarden prevents most pests, here’s what to do if you experience the odd one. Leaves are the leading indicator as to the health of your plants. Read this blog post for solutions. 

Trim excess roots on lower level plants

Trim up to one third of any roots that have grown down into the base reservoir.

Harvest & prune your plants regularly

Harvesting and pruning is super important. Check out our blog posts:

Empty & refill your base reservoir every 4-5 weeks

  1. Unscrew the Pump Connector Pipe from your pump and screw in the 1m length of clear hose back into your pump.
  2. Turn on your pump and direct the hose to water the lawn or potted plants if you are in an apartment. A little leftover water in the reservoir is not a problem. 
  3. Unscrew the 1m clear hose and screw the Pump Connector Pipe back into the pump. 

Alternatively, you can buy an Aquapro Little Pond Sucker from Bunnings.
