Grow Pod Reviews

"Babies do exceptionally well in the pod" @missamateurcraft 

"I can't believe how fast the chain of turtles grew!!" @meraki.plants

"...root systems on all of them were prolific and I accredit that to the grow pod." @missamateurcraft


Ready? Set? Grow!

Introducing the clever Grow Pod that keeps your baby indoor plants nurtured, healthy and happy all year round, even in winter. Keeps precious plants protected during the sensitive baby stage, to put on size ready for shelf life.



Which plants are Grow Pods for?

Yes, these are the 'secret' everyone talks about to raising big, happy, healthy String of Turtles and nurturing teeny tiny Philodendron Pink Princesses to grow in to grogeous queens. Suitable for all indoor plants and succulents as you can change the settings to suit. 3 light settings and built-in fan for ventilation, combined with increased humidity thanks to the protective plastic dome.

This desktop 'mini glasshouse' includes built-in LED grow light and fan. Makes propagating and growing babies a breeze. Protects your precious wishlist plants. 

What are the settings?

Your Grow Pod comes with a standard USB cord included, giving you multiple ways to run it. You can plug it in to your computer or laptop, or the way I use mine is plug it in to the wall using my phone or speaker charger brick. Those USB power boards are great too (I got mine from Noel Leeming and have seen them at Mighty Ape too).

The built-in LED grow light can be set to full or half strength. Lights can be set manually - on full, on half, or off - or the 3rd setting is day/night mode for a 12 hour automatic cycle. 

When plugged in, the fan in the base auto-cycles between 20 minutes on, 40 minutes off for air circulation to help prevent the dreaded root and leaf rot common at the baby plant stage. When in day/night mode, lights automatically turn on for 12 hours, then off for 12 hours.  

Use Grow Pods to give newly propped leaves and seeds a protective head-start to speed up root production and new leaf growth, and for growing pups, succulents, moss and more. Propagates and protects in winter or summer. Look after babies until they are bigger and hardier, better able to graduate out of their Pod handle shelf life.


Measures 11.5cm diameter x 19cm tall. Pot inside measures 8cm x 5.5cm. Plastic glasshouse dome by itself measures 12.5cm tall.

Although not prone to issues, they do come with a 6 month NZ warranty covering manufacturing faults or defects. Even if you're unsure how long you've owned your pod or what the cause is, always get in touch as I'd like to help. 

Shipping and Delivery FAQ's


Flat rate shipping is $5.90 nationwide (or $9.50 for rural). Order as many products as you like without paying anything extra for shipping. The only exceptions are plants and fragile or oversize products (like handmade pottery and coffee table books), which have their own rates. 

For $2 you can upgrade to signature required. Well worth it for anything valuable or limited edition that can't be replaced. Choosing signature required gives both of us the ability to claim if anything goes wrong with the courier. Signature required is flat rate $7.90 nationwide (or $12.50 for rural).

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from “Love that Leaf”. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson

"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now.
