Step 3: Set Up Your Click and Grow

Remove the lids from the pot, insert 4 AA batteries into the battery vault. A blue light will start blinking, indicating that you inserted the batteries correctly.

Step 4: Just Add Water

Fill the water reservoir with water — enough to fill the container to the indicated water level mark. The blue light will turn green and blink for 1 minute.

Step 5: Add the Germination Lens

Attach the lids, once you complete this step the green light will blink once every 5 minutes. Place the germination lens that’s included with the kit on top of the plant cartridge. It helps to create a greenhouse effect for more effective sprouting. You should remove it once the plants start to sprout.

Step 6: Enjoy Your Plants

In 1-2 weeks, you will see super cute little sprouts appearing out of the top of your Click and Grow. My son loved watching our basil grow – and it’s so simple, I didn’t have to worry about the plant dying if we forgot to water it!
