neat option for the kitchen


We like it for most part. Wish they would have more sprout options. Tired of same varieties. A bit of a pain to clean the pods form roots and things once replanting. Larger stones would help. Feeding hole for the fish is small and it does not stay dry with all the water circulation. Because of that when feeding fish, some food gets stuck on the feeding tunnel walls and that makes a mess. Some improvements to the design are definitely needed, but we are happy with the unit in general.

Nicely done Gardeners Edge


In the directions it explains that plants need two weeks to mature before adding a fish. I was amazed at how quickly it grew, only a week! They're beautiful healthy plants. No weed pulling and you don't have to remember to water. Just follow directions and enjoy the bounty. I really like this product; I might get another one : )

This is awful. I got one for my son on Christmas and when he opens it he looks up at me and frowns. It had a huge crack going up the side and was missing peaces. Now he has to wait a week until the new one gets shipped here.

Good idea, but not so great


Bought it when it was a kickstarter product. Seems cool, but doesn't really work out like its supposed to. You need plants that are already growing to keep the eco-system in balance, but the kit comes w/ seeds. Eventually your little friends needs will conflict as the plants need sun to grow & the fish needs shade to avoid algae and stress. I use mine as a hydroponic herb garden & put my fish in a nice bowl. Bummer, cause I was stoked to learn about aqua-P.
