How to Extend Light Height on Aerogarden

Introduction

The Aerogarden is a great tool for growing herbs and vegetables. You can grow your own fresh herbs and veggies with minimal effort, and it's perfect for those who don't have much space or time to dedicate to gardening. But what if you want to grow bigger plants? Or what if you just want more light in the house?

Luckily, there's an easy way to extend the height of your Aerogarden without spending extra money on an entirely new unit: just follow these simple steps!

open up the aerogarden and remove the pucks.

To extend the height of your light, you'll need to remove the puck from the Aerogarden and open up the aeroponics system. This can be done by following these steps:

  • Remove all pucks from the unit.

  • Unscrew four screws on top of each pod lid. There are two on each side of most pods—one near where it connects with power cord, one in front above seed pod area (right below where lid meets with body).

  • Lift top off and set aside for later use.

cut the hose in two (make sure it's on the clean end).

  • Make sure the hose is on the clean end.

  • Cut off about 2 inches of the hose and discard.

put a new hole in the plastic housing to attach the second piece of hose.

Now that you've determined the best place for your new hole, use a sharp drill bit or a hot glue gun to make the hole. If you're using the latter, be sure not to get too close to the bulb!

glue a new section of hose to the original piece and assemble.

To attach a new section of hose, first you'll need to make sure that the two pieces are clean and free of any debris. Next, glue one end of the new piece onto your old hose with a strong adhesive that can withstand water and various temperatures (such as hot glue). After it has dried for about 24 hours, reattach the other end and clamp down firmly so that it doesn't move when you turn on your aerogarden!

If you want to increase the height of your aerogarden lights, here are some tips:

  • Open up your aerogarden and remove all of the pucks.

  • Cut one end of a hose in two, making sure that it's on the clean side (as opposed to close to where water comes out).

  • Insert it into one of the pucks' holes (the larger ones) and plug it in.

Conclusion

It's not too difficult to extend the height of your aerogarden. All you need is a little bit of hose and some glue. By getting creative with how you arrange things, you can use this method on any other plants as well!
