When Click & Grow became a part of the YD Roadshow in Chennai, I was both ecstatic and weary. Ecstatic that YD will be showcasing such an innovative product and weary that I was to nurture and grow the plant for the event. A beautiful Basil and Cockscomb smartpot arrived at my doorstep and I got started almost immediately. I’ll skip the details on how-to-grow, as it is explained adeptly in the video after the jump and get to more about the experience of growing my first plant ever!

If I were to sum it up in a phrase, then the experience of growing a Click & Grow Plant was ‘the easiest thing I have ever done!’ I don’t have a green thumb and zero knowledge of fertilizing a plant; however this did not hamper the progress of my baby.
Basically the Click & Grow smart garden is the combination of a water reservoir and a smart cartridge. The cartridge houses the seeds, sensor, soil and fertilizer for the plant and draws in water from the reservoir. A small pump draws in the required water at regular intervals so that the plant doesn’t suffer from under or overwatering.
All you need from your end is water and four AA batteries; that is it! You can literally fill-it, shut-it and forget-it. In addition to the sleek white smartpot, which is a brilliant addition to a modern apartment, there is the award-winning starter kit package, which is an example of astute design and makes Click & Grow an ideal gift.
The Click & Grow plants are for those who have a green thumb but no time for nurturing their plants as well as for those who love plants but don’t know musch about them. Here is a special offer for all Yanko Design Readers, so that they experience the convenience of a Click & grow plant.
