Click & Grow Smart Garden 3 and 9 Indoor Gardening Kits Operation
Click & Grow Smart Garden Indoor Gardening Kits are very easy to set up and use:
- lamp is set up at desired height,
- refills are removed from the package and inserted in the cavities in the Smart Gardens. There are some 50 different refills (smart soil + seeds) available for these Smart Gardens.
- if you are going to grow different plants, it is time to label each plant,
- domes are added over each capsule. Domes act as small greenhouse and help grow plants. They are removed once the plants start to grow,
- fill the water tank,
- plug the Smart Garden in the wall socket.
And that is all :) Just be sure to check water levels periodically.
Note: timer is set for 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness. Since these models doesn't support custom timer settings, it is highly recommended to plug-in the unit right in the morning.
Smart Gardens are easy to use, but when you get one (or more) of these units, be sure to check manual/instructions before setting the units up.
Click & Grow Smart Soil
Smart Soil is made of natural materials and contain no pesticides, fungicides or hormones.
According to the manufacturer, it doses perfect amounts of nutrients, water and air for plants to grow strong and healthy - all what user has to add is water, no need to add fertilizers of any kind.
Also, Smart Soils is designed so that each plant has required pH-level and moist, but well aerated roots.
When the life-cycle of individual plant is over, throw away both the plant and its Smart Soil refill (what is left of it).
Is it possible to reuse refills or grow other plants without Smart Soil refills?
Short answer is: yes, it is possible. But, such activities would require some testing and in the end growing the plants in custom cups with growing soil (or at least some hydroponic root support material), soluble fertilizers and few more things.
If you want to try hydroponics, there are indoor hydroponics growing kits. Click & Grow Smart Garden Indoor Gardening Kits are designed for maximum simplicity and ease of use.
Click & Grow Smart Garden Refills With Berries
At the moment, 'only' tomatoes and strawberries are available for Click & Grow Smart Gardens - other berries would require larger indoor growing kits and longer growing times before first fruits are ripe.
Mini tomatoes spouts in 1-2 weeks, they reach full size in 1-2 months and bear fruits for 2-3 months.
Obviously, if you grow your tomatoes indoors, manual pollination is required.
Similarly, wild strawberries spouts in 1-2 weeks, they reach full size in 1-2 months and bear fruits for ~2 months. Also, if grown only indoors, manual pollination is required.
Long Story Short: If you want to start indoor garden, but don't have much free time, Click & Grow Smart Garden Indoor Gardening Kits can be of great help.
They are easy to use and maintain and have practically everything one needs to start an indoor garden.
Click & Grow Refills feature some ~50 different plants to choose from, including vegetables, flowers and obviously two berries: tomatoes and strawberries.
