Baby tomatoes in 4-5 weeks!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AeroGarden Extra Elite (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
I love the Pro 200! I bought a Space Saver 6 originally and liked it so much I decided to get a Pro 200. The Pro 200 is so much quieter than the other Aerogarden and it pumps the water up over the roots so that even if the water level starts to get low, the roots still get water. The Space saver 6 lets the roots just sit down in the reservoir tank and the pump agitates the water. This can be a problem if you have new plants with short roots and forget to check the water level for a while (happened to me).
I started tomato seeds in the Pro 200 and then 4 days later in some Jiffy peat pellets for transferring outside. Currently the tomatoes in the peat pots are about 6 inches tall and spindly (very similar to previous years), however the tomatoes in the Pro200 are ~14 inches tall and 18 inches wide with 40+ blooms and some baby tomatoes started! I have never seen such thick tomato plants, even outside! I think the main difference is the extra grow light. This thing is bright! If I forget to close my bedroom door, it frequently wakes me up at 3AM when the lights come on.
I'm growing amazing lettuce in the other Aerogarden and it is doing well. Both work well, but if I had to choose I would pick the pro 200 in a heart beat.
