Are the plant pods refundable/exchangeable? 

The pod packs are neither refundable nor exchangeable unless there is a fulfillment error or the pod pack is received in poor condition/damaged. However, we do offer a 100% germination guarantee

In the event that you are unhappy with any part of your pod pack, contact us at support@avagrows.com within three (3) days of the date you received the unsatisfactory item. If related to the condition of a pod pack, we will send you a replacement pod pack. We reserve the right, however, to require either the physical return of an unsatisfactory item, or a photograph of such, before any replacement pod packs are sent.

 

I do not have the original packaging for my AVA byte, can I use another box to ship it back to you?

All Byte devices must be returned in the original box as we cannot guarantee that the provided pre-paid return label will cover the cost on alternative packaging materials. If you do not have the original box, you can purchase a replacement for $25. Please contact our Customer Support team at support@avagrows.com for assistance or fill out this form

If you do not return your Byte in its original packaging, you will incur an additional $25 restocking fee, and you will not be reimbursed for return shipping fees. We cannot be responsible for any damages that may occur during shipping if the device is not returned in its original packaging. 

 

What does the 100% germination guarantee mean? 

Our custom pods are suitable conditions for plants to thrive in. You may, however, be eligible for a replacement plant pod pack if after 3 weeks, your pods have not germinated. 

Please keep in mind that all of our products are intended for indoor use. We are unable to replace pods if gardens have been kept outdoors. If you experience a problem or have questions, please fill out this form or email support@avagrows.com. Please include a photo of the plants with your message. Please also confirm the plants’ ages and the room temperature in which they were kept. This information can be accessed via the app.
