Grow Pod Reviews

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. Suitable for all indoor plants and succulents as you can change the settings to set. 2 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 with multiple settings. 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, 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 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 you have the choice of 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 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. Propagate in winter or summer. Look after babies until they are bigger and better able to 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.

"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. Thanks Love That Leaf! A+++" Karyn Wilson
