Other important things to consider
While room temperature is certainly something to keep in mind when choosing plants to grow, you should also consider how much care you want to give a plant, as well as how fast it grows.

While growing plants with Click and Grow requires minimal effort, some plants require more attention than others. If you’re indoor gardening for the first time, we recommend growing plants that require minimum effort.
For example, salad greens such as lettuce tend to grow fast and don’t require much care. In contrast, fruiting plants such as tomatoes tend to need thinning, manual pollination, and staking. Check out our mobile app and plant product pages to find out the care requirements for any plant.
