Building a LED Lit Grow Shelf to Maximize Grow Room

Turns out we had a need to put together a LED grow shelf. Here’s how we did it. Would love feedback and comments.

Two months in with the Click and Grow, here’s our review. (Updated).

We’ve had the Click & Grow Smart Garden 9 Click and Grow for about two months now. It’s given us two small lettuces, and we have been picking here and there at mustard greens, basil, and parsley. Two months in I think we have a pretty decent understanding of the device and its pros and cons and feel good writing this Click and Grow Review. This isn’t a device to grow food at home, it’s not a substitute for a garden, but it is a great tool to accent the herbs you have in your kitchen, and if you have kids, then the Click & Grow is definitely for you.

Methodology: When reviewing this, or any other product, our first goals at GreenerPods is to see how well the device can help you grow your greens or food at home to make any measurable impact on nutrition and budget, followed by how seamlessly it blends into the home environment, and lastly how well it’s designed as a product.
