Basically, the Click & Grow fertilization system is a mineral-organic hybrid.
We reproduce normal "soil" conditions by decomposing organic components by microbiological means. The same mechanism happens in nature - leaves fall and are turned back into soil. This natural plant feeding process is boosted by our hi-tech mineral release system. The latter uses nanotechnology to supply plant roots with elements that are currently in minimum (see picture). This eliminates most of the plants diseases and ails caused by bad nutrition.
Winter has arrived unexpectedly, as usual. In most places around the world it means that plants need much more care than normally. During winter, the most complicated issue for plants is lack of light.
What’s interesting is that people understand the necessity of light differently. A lot of our customers from Brazil complain that they don't have enough light there while customers from Norway confirm they have more light than necessary to grow their plants. We should bear in mind that plants feel light in their own way, not the way we do. How could we know, whether our plant has light enough for sprouting and growing?
Here are some pictures of our customers’ plants and you can clearly see that the plants bend towards the light, desperately searching for it, stretching and suffering from the light stress:
Have you ever wondered how important are plants actually? They are responsible for all of our oxygen we breathe and food we eat. If anything should happen to the plant kingdom, all human life is in danger. So what can we do to protect the plants? It may be assuring to know that we have a backup. A international seed genebank in Svalbard. Also known as .. The "doomsday" vault ..is designed to keep millions of seed samples safe from natural and unnatural disasters: global warming, asteroid strikes, plant diseases, nuclear warfare, and even earthquakes. In fact, the structure absorbed...
Just about this time 3 years ago a company called Click & Grow was founded. The founder, Mattias Lepp, had a grand vision - to change the way how plants are grown around the world. As the story of how the idea behind Click & Grow was formed is actually quite peculiar itself, lets take a look back..
As someone with a track record of being able to kill a cactus, I was obviously the perfect choice to test out the Click & Crow’s new smart gardens, although I call them pots. No pun intended. So basically, if those poor plants survive me, the company could sell these pots to… well, pretty much to everyone. You could buy the pot for your daughter and let her imaginary friend take care of it.
To begin with, let me give you a bit of an introduction…
My name is Vanessa and I am one of the Click & Grow brand ambassadors. I originally come from Estonia (which by the way, makes Click & Grow even more special and close to heart for me!), but I haven’t really lived there for the past 7 years. I’ve spent quite a bit of time living in Italy, Hungary & the US. Working as a consultant for a marketing consultancy means long hours and a lot of travel – typically I go on business trips on a weekly basis.
