    in general hydroponics is a pain in rear...............in soil you generally have about a week to fix a problem.............in hydro you have 6-24 hours depending on the issue and the plants involved........there is no way in heck i would trust expensive and rare CP's to hydro......atleast without a battery back-up.....a 24 hour power outage means dead plants.......in theory if your growing Mexi pings in pure Schultz Aquatic Plant Soil in a tray your actually growing them in a simple hydroponic system.........to my knowlege the AeroGarden isnt a simple hydroponic system.......its one of the more involved ones that can mean big problems if something goes wrong

    Just don't grow mint (mentha) from seeds, especially peppermint. Mint is propagated vegetatively, as the seed-grown plant is almost invariably of inferior quality.
    that makes no logic

    Well that kinda sucks because I actually found just mint seeds today at a local garden center. First time I've seen just mint. For $2 I'll try it out. Anyone know if they go dorment and come back if they do?

    Each seed has different genetics, you may hit upon a good variety or you may not, if you get a winner, just keep it going with cuttings, no need to worry yourself too much!

    so whats he going to do with the inferior mint? you ever tried to remove an established mint patch? the last one i had started growing into the lawn.........after several removal attempts, we gave up and just started mowing it as part of the lawn..........they are generally an extreamly hardy perennial, even up here in the frozen north
