Raise your hand if you'd love to grow fresh herbs at home, but you're too worried about accidentally killing all your plants to make your gardening goals a reality. (In case you can't tell, I'm over here raising my hand with you.) As it turns out, you don't necessarily need a green thumb to keep your plants healthy and happy. Why? Because you've got technology on your side—smart gardens, like this one from , are a thing now, and they're here to solve your plant problems.
Click & Grow's Smart Garden 3 essentially takes all the guesswork out of gardening, with a little help from some magic (AKA technology and special soil). The modular arm that reaches over the top of the planter features LED grow lights so you don't have to worry about sunlight, and the soil, which is NASA-inspired, is made specially to make sure your plants always have the right amount of water, oxygen, and nutrients. And, it's easy to use—plants come in pods (there are more than 40 to choose from, and the Smart Garden 3 has room for 3 pods) and all you have to do is plug it in, put water in the reservoir, and pop in your pods.
Not to mention, the smart garden is pretty sleek. It comes in three colors—beige, gray, and white—and is designed to be as sleek and stylish on your counter as it is nourishing for your plants. Another bonus: Measuring around 9 inches long, 5 inches wide, and 12 inches high, it doesn't take up too much space, either, so it'll work even in a small apartment.
And if you want to grow even more plants, you can upgrade to the Smart Garden 9, which has room for 9 plant pods.
