I got a new AeroGarden Bounty today. I am trying to figure out what these two thingies are. They came rattling around inside the bowl, now lying on the bottom. Did they fall loose from somewhere? Where should I put them before starting putting in the seed pods?
A big thanks to both Graham Chiu and stormy. Graham Chiu's answer is right on the mark. I posted this question last evening, because by the time I took this monstrosity out of the box, customer service had already closed. I have just called today after following Graham Chiu's suggestion. The translucent object indeed is a float with a magnet sensor that indicates water level. I almost got it upside down. It's really annoying that they do not include these objects in their list of components or instructions.
