Sowing my own seeds to experimental pod

Hi!
I got a 3-pack Experimental Pods as a gift from a friend. What should I plant there that is not available from Click and Grow? I have a pod subscription too, so I’ll be testing all the existing pods anyways…

PS buying new seeds is not a problem for me.


#2

I’ve grown a lot of plants in the experimental.
What is your interest?

So here is an Atropa belladonna growing. I started it in an experimental refill.


#3

“Deadly Nightshade” does not sound very promising to me :joy:

I was thinking something edible, maybe ornamental greens or herbs.


#4

Artemisia absinthum also worked very well for me. All Artemisia species seem to grow really good in the experimental.

Go for Stevia. With fresh seeds.

#6

How did Absinth grow then, did you get to harvest it?


#7

You seem to be experienced with the Experimental pods, right?. How many seeds should I add and how?


#8

Number of seeds depends on a plant you want to grow. What are you planning to grow in experimental?


#9

maybe some salad greens or herbs… I have not decided yet, there are so many options. …

Satureja aka Savory seems interesting…


#10

It grows still. And harvest is good! I had to replant outside though. But it has already survived a winter.


#11

ahahh so I can also use this empty experimental pod just to pre-grow something? e.g. a tomato (which is actually quite large plant) and later transplant it to a greenhouse or just outdoors? Is this why you replanted your plants?


#12

Yeah. I use my Click & Grow mostly to start new seeds during winter time. Then I transplant everything to my garden or greenhouse. It is by far the best way to start seeds.


#13

I may try it next spring too. This time I go for satureja :wink: Really exciting!


#14

Which one would work better? Satureja montana or S. hortensis? @anninger.kari do you know?


#15

btw, it went for S. hortensis. I planted 20 seeds per pod- I hope it is not too much. It is an annual and makes more sense to me to grow an annual plant indoors. I have no desire to plant it outdoors later.


#16

I thought so.

Has anyone tried growing Micromeria sp. in the Click & Grow experimental?


#17

What is Micromeria good for?


#18

Bushdoctor style tea. Mostly :slight_smile:


#19

Hi,

I was wondering if I can use Experimental Pods for growing bigger fruiting plants like Eggplants and Broccoli. Would they be too big in size for Garden 9? Has anybody tried it before?

Thanks!

I have tried mini eggplant. It gave me a couple of tiny fruits.
Generally the experimental plant pod is great for plants in the Solanaceae family.

So give it a try!
