How does it work?
Light Settings: Different plants require different intensities and durations of light to thrive. Select 8 HOURS and adjust brightness to medium intensity for shade and low light plants. Choose 12 HOURS and adjust brightness to medium-max intensity for partial sun plants. And, use 16 HOURS at max intensity for full sun plants.
Air Flow: The Growframe provides a protective environment, yet many plants benefit from air flow. It strengthens their stems and helps them stay hearty and upright, which is important when plants are started from seed and need to mature. When starting from seed, consider placing in a well- ventilated area near a window, vent or fan.
Location: Plants can thrive in any room with the Growframe. Our suggestions? Pair it with a humidity loving botanical like a fern or orchid in your bathroom and use it as a nightlight. Place it in your kitchen and grow your favorite herb. Hang it as artwork in your living room and fill it with an air-purifying plant like aloe or English ivy. Create a tranquil space in your bedroom with lavender or chamomile.
Watering: Watering frequency depends on the plant type. Be sure to factor in the environmental conditions based on the location of the Growframe (sunlight, heat, humidity). If your planter has a drain hole, make sure you add a tray underneath it to prevent water damage.

Air Flow: The Growhouse provides a protective environment, yet many plants benefit from air flow. It can strengthen their stems and help them stay hearty and upright, which is important when plants are started from seed and need to mature. To encourage air flow, place in a position where plants will receive an occasional slight breeze, whether from a window or a fan.
Location: Selecting an ideal indoor location is largely dependent on your preference and the plants you are growing. A sunny window can provide additional light and heat for fruiting and flowering plants or reversely too much heat for low light plants. A bathroom can provide a boost of humidity for water-loving botanicals. A vibrant vertical garden mounted on a wall can finally be achieved with a direct light source for your plants!

How do I set the timer?
Plug the enclosed power adapter into a wall outlet.
Tap the SET TIMER button to toggle timer setting options. A blue light will illuminate for 10 seconds to indicate what setting is selected.
Once the desired setting is selected, tap the INSTANT ON/OFF button to start the Growframe timer/lights.
LEDs will fade on over several minutes and stay on for the selected time. At the end of the timer duration, the LEDs will fade off. The LEDs will stay off for the selected number of hours, and the sequence will repeat at the same time the next day.
To temporarily turn off the Growframe for the day, tap the INSTANT ON/OFF button twice. The Growframe will turn off and resume the normal timer sequence the next day.
To permanently turn off Growframe, tap SET TIMER button until you reach the TIMER OFF setting.
How do I set the brightness?
Default brightness is max intensity. Setting the brightness will not alter the timer setting.
Simultaneously press the INSTANT ON/OFF button and the SET TIMER button. Release both buttons. If done successfully, all four indicator lights will illuminate in the right-hand settings area.

Safety Guidelines & Care Instructions
For indoor use only.
The LEDs have been permanently installed into this fixture. Do not repair, dissemble, or modify under any circumstances.
Although LEDs do not get as hot as incandescent light bulbs, they still generate some heat. Avoid touching the LED panel and do not cover lights with flammable objects.
Do not try to modify the plug, cable or adapter. Use only with supplied AC power adapter.
Do not use the light if the power cord gets damaged.
Avoid usage in high temperature areas.
TO PREVENT RISK OF SHOCK OR INJURY, always power off and unplug Growframe before cleaning. Use a soft and slightly damp cloth when cleaning LEDs. Do not use chemical or abrasive cleaners.
Bring the outdoors in! From delivering clean air to a tranquil environment, plants provide many perks. Create living art and connect with nature anywhere in your abode. Try bonsai trees, orchids, aloe, carnivorous plants, lavender, peace lillies, and maidenhair ferns for your home.
How long does the LED last?
Eco-friendly LEDs use minimal power and have a long life span. They’re rated for 25,000 hours of usage (an average of 12 yrs depending on timer settings). LEDs emit little to no heat and have a conformal coating for water resistance and durability.
Is the color shown in the photography accurate to what it looks like in person?
Yes! Our 92 CRI rated full-spectrum LEDs produce a museum-quality lighting, meaning no harsh blues or reds...just natural, warm white.
