    Not a good idea to put them in the door of a frost-less refrigerator. How do you think they stay frost-less?
    They heat the walls of the doors periodically, so the temp near the walls fluctuates a lot more than the center of the fridge does.

    Cool pod. In the video you put a lot of water in the bottles before adding the plants. Do you want the herbs to be mostly immersed in water? Thanks for sharing!
