Were you able to successfully grow it? I'm working on growing Arugula in Aerogarden and looking for some tips. Success is not yet imminent.
Cultivation and CareEdit
If others want to try, what tips can you give them? I've learned the hard way that Arugula is nutrient sensitive. My plants were doing very well at first, but when the AG alerted me it was time to add nutrients, and I put in the two capfuls called for, within a couple of days all the leaves started browning. So I've cut way back on how much nutrient is in the water, and I've also started a different method that I've used in other hydroponics, which is that nutrient is mixed with the water. That way when water is added, so is a very small amount of nutrient is added along with it, rather than a sudden jolt of it every two weeks. This second go-round seems to be growing much slower, but I've also had some issues with scale (mealy bugs) that seemed to come with the pre-packaged dill.
