Basil is considered a holy herb in India and is planted near the entrances of temples and even sacrificed to gods. It plays an important role in Indian as well as Italian cuisine (pesto!) and is found in Thai, Taiwanese and Indonesian dishes also. It is usually used fresh.
Scientific studies have found that basil has antioxidant, antiviral and antimicrobial properties. It is a rich source of vitamin A. No surprise then that it’s one of our best sellers.
Sprouting and speed of growth depends on the amount of natural light available. In spring and summer months plants grow faster, and in winter an additional grow light may be necessary.
Our nano-tech growth medium gives plants the right amount of water, oxygen and nutrients at all times.
Our sensors and software measure the conditions and make sure your plant is feeling well.
It's easy to get started with a smart flowerpot. Just add 4 AA batteries and fill the water tank once a month or so. Batteries will last for 8-12 months.
Despite the high tech involved, remember it's a live plant. Please don't place your plant away from light and don't cut off all the leaves at once.
Products are dispatched on the same working day and usually reach their intended recipients in less than a week. Due to strict customs regulations for live seeds we don't ship our products to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Russia and Brazil.
Should anything happen to the smart garden we'll happily exchange it for a new one during the first 12 months since purchase.
We offer fast email support to all customers and are able to sort out any issues quickly.
Different plants have different life cycles. Most plants grow 3-9 months, chili peppers and some blooming plants up to 12-18 months. The life time of a plant also depends on the light available, your room temperature and the way you look after the plant. For example, if you cut off all leaves off an edible herb at once, the plant may die.
We've designed the Smart Flowerpot as energy efficient as possible, its batteries last for 8-12 months. You're welcome to use rechargeable batteries in the Smart Flowerpot.
We're fans of pure food and non-GMO plants and haven't put anything in our products that is even remotely suspicious.
There are no pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, plant hormones or any other suspicious substances in our products. And there's no need for them - a well watered and fed plant with perfect growing conditions can defend itself without any outside help. What we have added are some minerals to feed the plant. Although the mineral salts we use are chemically the same as in all organic fertilizers, in most countries it cannot be certified as "organic".
You'd need to fill the water tank once every 3-6 weeks, and an indicator on the front panel will remind you of that.
Despite lots of high technology involved with Click & Grow, plants are grown naturally, using biomimicry as the main source for inspiration and innovation.
