    1. Incredibly developed plant genetics
     
    Agriculture used to be incredibly simple even back in the beginning of 20th century. A tomato was a tomato - red, roundish, medium size. A cucumber was a cucumber - green, rather tender, half a span long. And so on.

     

    Today, there is about 25 000 different tomato varieties and cultivars alone, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Every single herb, vegetable or fruit you have in your kitchen has countless “brothers” and “sisters”, differing from each other in shapes, sizes, colors, textures, flavors, scents, preferences, etc. Want to grow black strawberries? Voila. An apple that tastes like custard? No problem. Brainstorming options for saving paper? Here’s a tree that grows leaves that can be used as recycled paper. Want to set yourself on fire with the world's hottest chilies? Smoking Ed's 'Carolina Reaper' is at your service.

    3 reasons why growing food today is more exciting than ever

  • Crazy news, fellas - we are building a 5 km2 (53,000 ft2) underground thermonuclear cucumber "factory" where fresh vegetables for the entire state of California will be grown at a fraction of the current price! The plant will be constructed outside Reno, Nevada and located near the Tesla Gigafactory. The plant will feature a novel energy source relying on thermonuclear fusion.

  • As you might now, we just celebrated our 5th birthday on October 20. But we're still in a bit of euphoria (in fact, we just had an actual birthday party just yesterday, so our birthday mood hasn't gone anywhere, and we're still eating cakes for breakfast, lunch an dinner), since this fact is almost unbelievable. Here at Click & Grow, time flies by faster than the blink of a Smartpot, and milestones like these make us stop and look back. So here it is - the history of Click & Grow, revealed.

    The Click & Grow garden cannot actually be considered a hydroponic or aeroponic device. The growing medium inside the Click & Grow cassette is not water. It is an elegant matrix with the chemico-physical buffer abilities comparable to the best soils in the world.
