Smart Herb Garden setup guide

Follow

1. Open your Smart Garden box. You will see that the plant capsules are already inserted in the garden.

2. Carefully remove the green sticker covering the refill.

3. Take a pen and give your plants a name to keep track of them later.

4. Put the transparent germination domes on each capsule. The dome should stay on until sprouts are visible, after that you can remove it.

5. Fill the water tank with about 1.3 L/44 oz of water. Make sure the water level indicator doesn't rise above the surface of the lid to avoid over-watering.

6. Plug in the garden and you are good to go!

    For the record, nowhere on the box does it say to leave the domes on. I checked this forum after 2 weeks of no growth on my smart garden. Now I fear my plants are dead. There goes $40 of plants. Please look into adding this to the boxes. Thank you.

    It clearly shows the domes should be on - until the plants outgrow them (size-wise). I now have 2 ripe tomatoes!

    Help! My Smart Garden tomato plant is dying. The leaves are all turning yellow and crispy. There is plenty of water in there and the cartridge is all the way down. It has grown quite a bit. It is probably 8 inches tall right now, but quite a few of the leaves are having issues.

    Can someone please tell me what the different flashing colours mean? Also my plants died. Lifted out to check the soil and the soil was hard and dry. There was plenty of water. Suggestions please?

    I have just set up my plants. However, I filled the water container, but only used about 1 cup, not 5. I filled it level. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Jill, that's odd! Could you empty the water tank and try again? When the tank is empty, is the water level indicator float in the bottom? It should be in the bottom and rise gradually when you're adding water and it definitely takes more water than just 1 cup. If there's any more confusion or things are not as described, please pop a message to our support team (support@clickandgrow.com), we'll have a look at it!

    I am also having mold grow in the soil of my plants. How do I make it stop?

    Hi Bette Ann! Mold can sometimes occur, indeed, I'm sorry you're having this problem! We don't use any kind of fungicides, pesticides, hormones or any other kind of poisons in our product to keep it away either. This is normally the case of over-watering or too much humidity in the environment.
    The water level indicator float should never be higher than the surface of the lid, I suggest you also remove the affected refills for 1-2 days to let them dry a bit. Just leave them on top of the garden so that your plants could still get all the light they need. You can gently try to scrape the mold off and also remove the white U-shaped lid for better air circulation. Hope it'll get better!

    the "Smart Garden" product already contains already 3 refills, right?
    which ones? 3 parsley? 3 mini tomoto?
    can we decide which 3 refills to get?

    what about insects? how can we prevent insects from eating the plants?

    Hey David!

    The Smart Garden contains 3 basil refills in the starter kit.

    We don't use any kind of fungicides, pesticides, hormones or any other kind of poisons in our products. Our growing substrate is heat treated, so there is no way that bugs are already in the refill. The substrate is ecologically clean and that’s why pests from the external environment might find it to be a good habitat.
    You would need to keep an eye on the plants to see that they are okay. In the case something should happen, you can use (or ask about at the nearest gardening shop) biological pesticides.
