What to do with your Airgarden when you're away
If you’re heading away on a holiday, firstly - good for you! Secondly, here’s what to do with your Airgarden while you are away.
If you are only going away for less than 10 days, you can simply ensure the reservoir of your Airgarden is filled with water, your pH levels are balanced, and add nutrients. Your plants will be totally fine for this length of time.
If you’re going away for more than 10 days and don't have anyone who can come and top up your water and check on your plants, then follow the below steps to harvest, empty and store your Airgarden - aka an “Airgarden holiday”.
1. Harvest your plants
2. Empty your Airgarden
Take the longer 1m clear hose you were given in your Airgarden package and attach to the pump in the reservoir and empty out all the water (see “cleaning your Airgarden” section in owners manual). Make sure to unplug your pump as well.
3. Clean your Airgarden
This process can also be a good time to disassemble your Airgarden and give it a good clean as per these instructions, before you store it away.
4. Store your Airgarden
You can either reassemble your Airgarden and cover it with a tarp or plastic sheet and leave it outside, garage or shed. If you’re covering it with a tarp or sheet remember to secure these by running a strap or rope around them.
So there you have it, you and your Airgarden have worked hard and deserve a holiday!
