What are the u-shaped lids and domes on my smart garden for?

Have you ever wondered what the u-shaped lids and domes do on your Click & Grow Smart Garden? Here’s the answer!

U-shaped lid



Your smart garden comes with a set of white u-shaped lids to cover each plant cup. These lids optimise water consumption by helping to reduce water evaporation from the soil. They also minimise the amount of space between the lid and soil so mold can’t thrive. Furthermore, by covering the majority of the soil’s surface from the light, they make it more difficult for algae to grow. We highly recommend keeping the u-shaped lids on at all times. Also, remember to keep them as they are reusable!

Dome



In addition to the u-shaped lids, your smart garden comes with a set of transparent cups known as domes. The purpose of the domes is to assist with germination. It does this by creating greenhouse-like conditions to help the seeds sprout faster. We highly recommend using the domes during the early stages of germination. You can remove the domes once the plants have sprouted and are almost touching them.
