The electronic garden (pot) and the plant cartridge work together like a printer. Just like you can change the empty printer cartridge, you can change the plant cartridge in the Click & Grow pot. If the plant's natural life cycle ends, you can remove the old plant cartridge and insert a new one. Immediately the flowerpot will start to grow a new plant! For that you do not have to buy a whole new flowerpot, instead you only have to change the cartridge. After placing the new plant cartridge into the flowerpot, it will install all the necessary data for growing the specific plant from the cartridge and the new plant starts to grow.
The starter-kit includes everything you need to start growing a plant in the flowerpot. You need to add batteries (Not included in the starter-kit) and fill the water reservoir with 1 liter of good quality water up to the indicated water level mark. After a month or two you need to refill the water reservoir and once a year you need to change the batteries. If the flowerpot needs water the LED on the front will blink blue and if it needs new batteries, red will blink as a reminder. If everything is well, a green light will blink once every five minutes.
