The Smart Garden 9 Indoor Gardening Kit Reviewed:
Ever wanted to have fresh home grown produce all year round without producing a mini farm in your back yard? Produce grown without chemical sprays and fertilizers can be hard to come by. On the other hand, growing your own produce sounds like hard work especially when weather conditions are limiting or you live in a small apartment without much natural light. The Click & Grow Smart Garden 9 Indoor Gardening Kit aims to bring you a product that combats how increased urbanization has distanced us from sustainable food growth. With the birth of this new product, the success of picking an apple off an apple tree seems passé as the Smart Garden 9 allows you to easily produce over 40 products including chili, mint, and even berries without working up a sweat and what's more, all parts are machine washable! Click & Grow claim that their product accelerates the plant growth without jeopardizing quality so we were especially excited if the grass really can be greener indoors.
In terms of size, the product is 24.4 x 8.7 x 8.5 inches and weighs roughly 8lbs which is similar to the measurements of a regular kitchen appliance. Even reviewers with smaller amounts of surface space commented that they found it easy to find room for it, be it on the kitchen counter, above the fridge or on the window ledge. It looks like a more modern take on a regular plant pot with nine separate chambers however instead of regular soil, you use specially developed smart soil from Click & Grow. The smart soil does appear to be, well, pretty smart. It is able to breathe with the plant and in turn disperses air and water based on the plant's needs. It is safe (no GMOs pesticides or insecticides), sufficiently nourishes plants whilst being biodegradable too. The nanotech material which Click & Grow have developed means that plants receive the precise amount of oxygen, water and nutrients that they need to grow resulting in a fail-safe way to greener living.
Almost all of our reviewers stated that set up was super easy and took between 10-20 minutes. All you have to do is fill the tank with water, plug the garden in and get planting. On purchasing, you receive a complimentary set of 9 capsules (3 mini tomato, 3 basil and 3 lettuce) which we planted straight away. To begin, you pop one of these capsules into one of the chambers and activate the 10 LED lights integrated to the kit to induce photosynthesis. The LED lights run 16 hours on and 8 hours off so if you keep this in an area where people sleep we would recommend switching it on as soon as you wake up. In addition, the Smart Garden only requires 6 watts of energy meaning that it needs very little extra cost to run. Our testers claimed that within a couple of weeks there was tremendous progress in the form of visible sprouts on everything they had planted. One reviewer even said that she wasn’t looking forward to the review as she has never had a green thumb. She was so impressed with how well her plants grew and how good it felt to feed her family fresh produce she ordered one straight away.
The Click & Grow Smart Garden 9 is revolutionary to say the least. All our testers commented that the product works amazingly well and at $200 this super easy indoor gardening solution is great value for money. It is more sustainable than other food production practices, helps to grow plants faster and thanks to the nanomaterial, there is no need to waste money on fertilizers, sensors, or filtering systems. So, whether or not you're growing to change your diet, create healthy juices and smoothies or simply enjoy a pop of greenery in an urban space, it's now possible to make gardening fun, stress free and rewarding. So, keep calm and garden on!
