Select the water icon, and then change settings. Follow the steps until you reach the pump on/off screen.
There’s also a bigger model available; the AeroGarden™ Farm Plus with 60W of dual LED power and 24 inches of growing height.
For feminized seeds, I suggest 18/6 for the vegetative stage, then switch to 12/12 to trigger flowering stage.

Miracle-Gro AeroGarden™ is an exciting hydroponic system. You can grow fresh herbs, lettuce, year-round, in the comfort of your home.
I strongly recommend growing only one or two plants at a time. Your marijuana plants will need an increased amount of space while growing and try to put more plants will decrease the yield.
Cannabis, like any other plants, needs calcium and magnesium.
On the other hand, yields are usually smaller with autoflowering seeds and most have a lower THC percentage.
Autoflower seeds, which are cannabis seeds that won’t need to be pollinated by other flowers and pretty much just do their thing without much help, typically take about 10 weeks to reach the bud stage, according to online guides, but I can imagine a scenario where it could take four or five more weeks than that, especially if one was completely inexperienced and wasn’t exactly sure what the harvest stage looked like, despite the proliferation of YouTube videos on the subject.
If you want to know what these guides suggest, or how this would all work without clicking on those links (don’t blame you, I wouldn’t!), I suppose I could summarize for you, although you shouldn’t take my word for it because I don’t know anything about it.
But let’s say you had just purchased an AeroGarden, you had access to the internet and its many gray virtual alleyways, and you didn’t live in Texas. How would that even work? You know, for someone who could do it legally. Not me, certainly. Maybe you or someone you know.
I Grew Tomatoes With the Heat From My Crypto-Mining PC
I t may have happened that during this extended period of new-hobby adoption and exploration of The Old Ways that one might have purchased a gadget called an AeroGarden to grow veggies and herbs. AeroGardens, which can grow plants out of Keurig-like seed pods with only water and liquid nutrients, were hard to find last year as the pandemic increased demand. They were coveted by people like me who wanted to learn how to garden and grow edible crops, but were also really bad at growing plants with soil and sunshine and water.
Before things even got to that stage, I could also picture a scenario where one would get so obsessed with the health of their beautiful, growing cannabis plant that one would get stressed over spotty, burnt, or browning leaves and wonder what to do about the water or the hours of simulated sunlight the AeroGarden is giving off. (20 hours on, four hours off a day might be a good rule of thumb; I wouldn’t know.) One might go down the internet rabbit hole wondering how to get rid of the smell that comes from growing cannabis in an AeroGarden in, say, a bedroom closet, and learn that people have come up with incredibly elaborate (and pricey) workarounds using plastic tent material and carbon filters. You might buy a humidity and temperature reader just to make sure conditions in the grow room (or closet) are ideal.
Several sites that deal in selling cannabis seeds (illegal in some states, read the fine print!) and reviewing hydroponics products also have guides with different methodologies for getting good grows.
Sometimes technology comes back around to teach you a thing or two about something very analog, something tactile, and real-world that makes you feel a little more connected to an unlikely pursuit, such as agriculture.
