Pro Pod is an investment that pays off in lush vigorous plant growth.

What's going on everyone, Aaron here from Happy Hydro! This week, we're checking out the Pro Pod from Grower's Choice – an all-in-one vegetative and cloning station that offers total control at the tip of your fingers. Let's dive in and see how this system can transform a small space into a massive garden.

Unboxing the Grower's Choice Pro Pod

Inside the box, you'll find everything you need to start a small forest. Each component is designed for ease and efficiency. From standard trays that fit perfectly to LED panels that promise optimal growth, the Pro Pod has it all. Let's piece it together and power it up.

Assembly and Setup

Assembling the Pro Pod is straightforward, but you will need a few extra tools like a Phillips screwdriver and a 10mm ratchet to lock the trays and shelves into place. Each shelf weighs around 5 pounds and has two light strips attached underneath. Don't forget to remove the plastic protectors from the light strips.

This unit accepts voltage input ranges from 108 to 277 volts, most commonly 120 volts and 240 volts. For extra security, the power cord from the wall is a twist-lock plug.

Built-In Controller and Features

One of the standout features of the Pro Pod is its built-in controller. You can schedule times, change the lighting spectrum, and adjust settings for each shelf independently. This unit is IP65 rated, meaning the powder-coated metal shelves can withstand various environmental conditions.

The control system not only manages light settings but also integrates additional devices like humidifiers and exhaust fans. It can handle an inline fan up to 300 watts and 3 amps, managing significant airflow needs. You can set parameters for humidity and temperature, and the system will automatically adjust to maintain optimal growing conditions.

Lighting Specifications

The Pro Pod pulls in 440 watts from the wall and features dual spectrum LED lighting, including the GC 5K full phase and the GC clone spectrum. The GC 5K is ideal for young plants, while the GC clone spectrum, which is more blue-focused, boosts rooting and early-stage vegetative growth.

Using my Apogee tool, I tested the PAR readings at various dimming levels:

  • 100%: Around 320 to 220 to about 170 PPFD at canopy height.
  • 50%: Around 120 to 170 PPFD.
  • 25%: Around 50 to 70 PPFD, perfect for getting those little plants started.
