An Infomercial for Pot-Heads?? Are Marijuana Smokers Using the AeroGarden to Grow Weed?

The AeroGarden sells itself as a great way for people to have fresh herbs and lettuce always available in their kitchens. The infomercial for the AeroGarden takes place in a clean suburban-looking kitchen and features testimonials from lots of middle-aged soccer moms.

But the first time I saw the AeroGrow infomercial I thought, “Isn’t that a device for growing marijuana?” The only association I have with hydroponics and fluorescent “grow lights” being used to grow plants inside a private residence is that of some weed-head trying to cultivate some really killer bud.

Many people have watched infomercials while stoned, but this may be the only infomercial that can actually help people get stoned!

I wondered if anyone else had a similar thought on seeing the AeroGarden on TV.

The topic of using the AeroGarden to grow weed is indeed a subject of some discussion on marijuana websites. The opinions are sharply divided between those who say they actually use the AeroGarden to grow marijuana and those who insist the product is worthless for that purpose.

Checkout the discussions on,, and

Forget Cathy Mitchell and Erica Shaffer. If the AeroGarden makes a new infomercial they should sign up Woody Harrelson and Snoop Dogg as celebrity endorsements!

  • Didn’t Snoop Dogg already appear in the infomercial for some Girls Gone Wild video? AreoGarden should also hire him because he has prior experience as an infomercial pitchman. LOL!

  • The areogarden could grow marijuana BUT it will starve the root of the proper oxygen level to produce THC.

    Comment by Hanz Zinherhole on January 21, 2008 at 11:07 am

  • If properly used it CAN indeed grow weed, 2 200Watt HPS or 1 400 Watt HPS lights can be installed on this unit and there are other nutes you can give the water to help feed the roots. I don’t know the recipe im just sayin’!

    Youtube Aerogarden Weed and see for yourself.

  • my friend has a aerogarden and grows it and his plants are fuckin huge and have a lot of vegetation they got to big for it in a month and had to transpplant to soil

    Comment by Craig on February 24, 2008 at 1:45 pm

  • The aerogarden works great, but if your trying to produce large quanities, then soil works better. But if you want to grow some potent bud for your own private stash, and you dont have allot of space or time, the aerogarden is great…..

    Comment by NICK on August 12, 2008 at 6:11 am

  • You guys are fuckin retards. It’s like the comment by “NICK” .. of course you’re not gonna be able to grow huge amounts, when compared to soil. The rule is you need about as much space for plant as you do for roots. Though it’s a little different for this method, you still can never get anything that big. Don’t be so greedy though.. it’s not supposed to be about making cash, ya fuckin schemers.. it’s about being somewhat self-sustaining, so you don’t have to throw money around for weed. Learn to produce enough for yourself and help kill the drug trade.

  • Aerogarden fuckin owns you bitches. any of you say it sucks can all go suck your own dicks

  • Instead of being humorous or satirical in nature, most of the comments here have turned out to be serious statements by chronic potheads, whose ego has been hurt by the tone of this blog.

    Comment by Znkp on December 28, 2008 at 3:12 pm

  • Oh my, and here I thought about how freaking cool the Aerogarden would be for me to have plenty of fresh mint on hand for my mojitos. I love how stoners get all technical about the mechanics of growning, cultivating, etc. but they can’t remember the simple things, like taking out the trash or taking a shower. This based on my personal experience with the stoney crowd, your mileage may vary. 🙂

    Party on!

  • If people want to use the areo garden for pot that is there perrogative.Pot heads have much more advanced systems than the areogarden anyway. And if it was really anything to blog about I am sure the government would have tabs on it and every sale if they were that worried about it. So grow up and do yourself. Have a nice day!

    Comment by dino on January 9, 2009 at 3:35 pm

  • you can grow pot and yes it should be for ur own personal use unless this damn country legalizes it we shouldnt support the purchasing cause all were doing is making out selves broke as hell especially inthis crappy ass economy we got going just grow your own its the best way plus ull always have some u can grow up to 3 in the aerogarden with out it effecting the root and water/nutrient intake u can trim the plant as well to fit better in it but u should get a smaller type of plant. grow 3 of them at differnt times preferably start the first one then the second start 3 weeks later then the next another 3 weeks after that should be perfect ive been doing this for the past 8 months and ive harvested 4 times already and have had a steady supplya nd my 5th is almost ready for pickings lol sadly this will be my last for awhile but ill be back

  • “I love how stoners get all technical about the mechanics of growning, cultivating, etc. but they can’t remember the simple things, like taking out the trash or taking a shower.”~MoJo………..I love how there’s always some stereotype spewing douche on every one of these boards. I smoke pot, daily, multiple times a day. I shower, I graduated college, I work a 9-5, I show up for work, I participate in my community. Surprisingly I even take the trash out. Wow, I haven’t been transformed into some semi-functioning waste of life due to my horrible marijuana addiction. OH MY GOD NO FUCKING WAY!!!! You must have been talking about crack heads MoJo, b/c you obviously have no fucking clue what you’re talking about, so do us all a favor and keep your worthless stupid “ideas” and “thoughts” inside your own fucking empty ass skull.

    Comment by davo on July 5, 2009 at 5:01 am

  • HAHA im glad somebody told this guy Mojo off lol
    I 2 am a daily marijuana smoker. one in the mornin, one at lunch, and one after work, keeps me nice and mellow all through the day. But i too am, a college graduate but actually own my own business (dont work a 9 to 5, ull never get rich working for someone alse) and positive part of my community, shower everyday and really taking the trash out isent a problem even tho i live on a 3rd floor in an aptmmnt bldng. so like gofuckurself said, take your hatin ass out of here and smoke a bowl. it may make u get an aerogarden lol

  • Mojo shut your fucking mouth you stupid ass sterotyping pussy.

    Comment by Steven on July 16, 2009 at 4:25 pm

  • Lemme tell you something mojo…

    I’m pretty much brand new to the pot head world and I’ve been smoking everyday for the past three months and lemme tell you something, I’m 19 I used to wake up at 4 or 5 sit on my ass all day and play video games until somebody called me about band practice and then get drunk and I showered once or twice a week. Now three months later, been smoking everyday and guess what! I got my G.E.D., cut my hair to look more respectable(18 inches), have applied to several colleges, and take a shower EVERYDAY. So stop spreading lies. It’s uninformed, ignorant people with big mouths like you and Georgia state representative Tommy Benton that keep great organizations like NORML from succeeding in their goals. Weed is the third most popular recreational drug in the nation and number one in over all health. Alcohol and tobacco kill more people and destroy more lives together in the United States each year than people who smoke pot!

    Stupid fuckers.

  • You know I am going to Say something. There has been a PROVEN fact that marijuana smoking has made people WAY more calmer and relaxed! Does marijuana make you go and have rage? NO, Marijuana is a stimulate to calm the body. There was a documentary on the USA compared to The netherlands. Here you see people on the streets, you see harmless people in jail while killers are still on the loose. you go to the nehterlands and everything is so PEACEFUL! I can alomost guarentee that there are many law inforement people who do smoke marijuna. there is nothing bad about it. there is no added chemicals like in tabaccoo. If everyone smoked pot this world would be a better place. AND!!!!! If they legalized marijuana this country would be debt free within 2-3 years. GUARENTTEED!!! Y? becasue they could tax the shit out of it! people are going to buy it, but it cannot be more expensive then what our sellers are already selling for. where I live it cost 360/oz expensive! so they could sell and oz for 80$ and tax it to make a profit of 20$ now you take 20 and multiply that by 100 you get 2000. AND YOU KNOW PEOPLE WILL PAY FOR IT!!!so USA Just legalize it! your putting more stress on yourself and our country….we dont need it!! (ALL FOR MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION)!!!!!

  • wow…potheads of the world unite. mojo’s comment wasn’t all that offensive. for “calm” people, you all sure are a bunch of angry dicks. and yes…i said you ALL. wow, what a stereotypical bastard i am. i guess my family should be burned up while i watch, right?

    Comment by ass clown on October 21, 2009 at 8:18 pm

  • Wow, a generalization about stoners being lazy leads to countless stoners ranting ad nauseum.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’d like to see marijuana be made legal as a recreational substance within my lifetime. In order to do that, we need to be able to address dissenting views with grace and tact. Thus far, the only people who have made any progress towards legalization have been articulate, calm, and rational while making their case. A non-cohesive semi-coherent grammatical nightmare wrought with typos is probably not the best way to convert someone who believes the things you do make you inherently stupid and lazy.

    MoJo, if by chance you do read this, an argument by generalization is nothing more than a fallacious argument. Everyone who has told you they use marijuana is slovenly and lazy, therefor everyone who uses marijuana is slovenly and lazy. Have you considered that, as a rule, the only smokers you can pick out of a crowd are, necessarily, those who follow the stereotype? As a comparative example, I am a vegetarian. When most people find out I am a vegetarian, they are shocked because they assume that all vegetarians aggressively advertise the evils of animal products at all times. In reality, most vegetarians feel this is a personal choice and don’t bother to bring it up save for in rather specific situations. It is difficult to judge a community you are not a part of. You may very well know more “stoners” than you realize.

  • Simmer down, kids. Medical MJ’s coming up in the world and that’s a good start. Maine’s governor Angus King DOUBLED the legal amount after legislators passed 1 ounce and 3 plants 10 years ago, to 2 1/2 ounces and 6 plants. A new Citizens Referendum just passed this week will establish legal dispensaries so MMJ patients don’t have to support nasty cartels. No reason to debate the benefits; that’s already a matter of record, and law.

  • The comment by “what?” is right on point. It is by far the most sensible, sensitive, and unbiased comment posted here. Bravo!

    Legalize it.

    Comment by Terrific Jay on December 28, 2009 at 1:56 pm

  • Sure worked for me and I did it EXACTLY as the directions stated. On top of that, I grew from seed. I met a guy online who buys one a month for sick people and teaches em how to grow their own!!On a fine day , can’t remember which, I found these on the Areogarden web site for $40 a piece! Smart Alice, I bought two. New time I’ll buy four! Keep on keepin’ on and grow your own!!

    Oh yeah, it’s the smelly and irresponsible potheads that you see outside 7-Eleven begging for fucking money, isn’t it? Nope, it’s the drunks. The alcoholics that KILL people. Stop being a stereotypical fuck, educate yourself, and then come back here and repost an intelligent comment. Okay? Thanks.

  • Can all of u stfu bitchin n answer the fuking question? I’m tryin to grow in soil atm bt got to week 4 n all I have is a tall skinny cress looking mofo. If I spend MY money on an aerogarden will it make my life easy or will it still be easy for me to fuck up the grow? All i want is a nice smoke for myself. So long as it ent shit I ent bothered about potency and as I said its for me so I don’t need loads of plants

    Comment by stafu on February 12, 2012 at 7:41 pm

  • i have 6 aerogardens..and..iv used em to grow just about everything. allegedly including high grade medicinal marijuana

    Comment by gardenerguy on April 26, 2013 at 8:23 am

  • this is 2016 now one calls bud/cannabis marijuana unless racist, a drone or speak Spanish do your research this is America and it called Cannabis and yes there are many benefits of growing bud with areogarden’s dont know the procedure or claiming im an expert but it would be a definitely stop the threat of spider mites that fly in the wind and destroy ur harvest of cannabis and other plants. Here is another suggestion use the low stress straining method so your plant grows in a circular motion so your plant doesn’t get to big for the aerogarden…Cannabis is a plant that is legal in many states now stop the belligerent criticizing attack on the people who use the plant. Benjamin Franklin smoked Michael Phelps smokes it is very possible to use cannabis and be productive its a matter of self-control by doing drugs and not letting drugs do you
