    Even though a screening of The Elf, Home Alone or The Grinch is mandatory every December, we're growing a little tired of the traditional oh-so-nice Christmas movie lists. And we're sure we're not alone in this - after all, the Click & Grow family is nothing but geeks, freaks and badasses. They even grow plants the badass way. (wink wink)


    So the status of being food tech geeks by day and movie geeks by night made us feel knowledgeable enough to drop you some alternative Christmas movie ideas. Sit back and enjoy!


    P.S. Merry Christmas.

    Each plant has its “thing”, just like people. We all know that you eat licorice to relieve cough, snack on stevia to substitute sugar and get in better shape, and make a brew of coffee beans to get more energy. But there's also many plants that you don't necessarily have to eat to benefit from their “thing”. It can be enough to just smell them - yes, they're that powerful. Considering that we're craving a Big Mac more than herbs and greens when having a headache, this sounds like pretty good news to us. So to have these great-smelling hacks all in one place, here's a list of 5 herbs that will solve 5 problems you may have. They're dope.

    From the beginnings of time, plants were there not only to feed us and make the world more beautiful, but also to deliver messages. We're sure you've read some old tale back when you were a kid about a man who gave a rose to his woman as a symbol of love. Even Shakespeare recognised violet to represent faith in his Hamlet.


    And so we asked ourselves - what if we'd thank the people around us with plants? After all - Thanksgiving is coming up soon! And this time we want to give a gift of meaning and life to our most beloved ones, rather than yet another Christmas sweater.

    Internet is a glorious place - one can find anything here. You can learn it all from kissing and finding your TV remote to unlocking your cat's heart to emotion in no time. While a tutorial on how to make up a joke fast is no surprise to us (we all have at least one moment we could have used this), a promise on changing your cat's attitude from “I don't give a shit” to “You're the best human slave” sounds almost unbelievable. But there is, in fact, a very simple way - Catnip cookies (originally called “Kitty Kisses”). Here's what you do:

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away. But why is that? Of course, if you throw it hard enough, it will keep anyone away. However, scientists are actually convinced that the flavonoid components in the apple skin are responsible for our good health.
