Miracle-Gro Twelve Indoor Growing System

This monitor is ideal if you don’t want to use an entire system, which can be much more expensive.
The AeroGarden is a sleek, smart indoor gardening gadget that looks great on a countertop or table. In fact, it makes a great decorative piece as you easily grow up to six plants at a time.
