Direct sun through window

We just got our new click & grow, and it’s awesome. I’m wondering where we should keep it. We have southern facing windows, should we put it next to those? Or will the extra sunlight mess with the timing of the special grow lights, or something?

Sorry for such a basic question, we got this because we are terrible at growing things. It would be sad, but not surprising, if we still managed to kill the plants or mess up their growth somehow!

It’s suggested to not put it near windows, not because of the light, but because the possibility of pests infecting your plants from the outside.


Welcome to the community @Hume

The extra light will not mess up the timer that the garden comes with. The lamp that comes with the garden provides enough light for the plants to thrive.

However, in the full sunshine temperature may rise higher than expected. Some plants don’t appreciate if the temperature rises, especially greens and some flowers. So, if you live in a warm climate you may consider placing it away from direct sunlight. Also, if the garden is placed under the full sun you may need to fill the water tank more often as the plants use up more water than usual.
