Click and Grow pod basics

Click and Grow pods are cylinder-shaped inserts made of a growing medium that also contains seeds and mineral nutrients. The soil pods are made of “Smart Soil”, which is mainly a mix of peat moss and coconut coir (source: Click & Grow). The plant capsules have been formulated with NASA technology to provide water, oxygen, and nutrients to plant roots in a contained manner for indoor growing. These proprietary plant pods are unique to the Click And Grow system.

In addition to the growing medium, the plant pod plugs also contain a mineral fertilizer within the potting mix/growing medium, as well as seeds (except in the case of the empty “Grow Anything Indoors” capsules, which you can fill with your own seeds). Each seed pod for these indoor gardens tends to contain about 3-5 seeds. Click & Grow Plant Pods are free from herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, and other harmful substances.

Setting up plant pods in a Click and Grow garden

Setup of the plant pods is easy in a Click & Grow Garden. Start by removing a cylinder-shaped plug of smart soil from the package. There will be a small indentation/hole in the top of the soil where the seeds are resting. Place the soil pod into a white plastic cup. Then, place the white plastic cup into a hole in the top deck of the garden below the grow lights/LED light system arm. Add the rest of the pods to their own white cups and then fill up the water reservoir/water tank.
