One unfortunate fact about gardening is that you don't see a lot of the magic because it's under the ground. It's all fine and dandy to plant seeds and then watch them sprout, but what about the other half of the plant? Sure, you could dig up the plant to see the roots, but then it's just about dead. If only there was a sort of ant farm for vegetables...
Wait, there is! The Root Vue Farm is a self-watering grow unit with a special viewing window so kids can watch roots develop underground. Watch carrot, radish, and onion seeds grow up as their roots grow down. The complete kit includes a durable styrofoam growing unit with acrylic viewing window, built-in water basin and drainage reservoir. A light shield keeps plants growing but can be removed for viewing roots. Eight super-expanding grow mix wafers feed your plants the nutrients they need to grow. Finally, you'll get three packets of seeds (carrot, radish, onion), identification labels, water wicks for the self-watering system and a 16 page booklet with complete instructions and experiments.
WARNING: Choking hazard. Small parts. Not for children under 3.
Recommended ages: 4+ with parent supervision
