JrPonics FishGarden - How It Works!

The JrPonics FishGarden is a miniature aquaponics garden where kids can watch frogs, shrimp, snails or fish live, eat and grow below in a natural environment, while growing a couple of plants like basil or mint from the top.

The JrPonics FishGarden easily demonstrates the powerful but natural process of nitrification where plants, pets and bacteria all thrive and do better with one another's help.


JrPonics BubbleGarden - How It Works!

With the new JrPonics BubbleGarden you can learn all about hydroponics by growing plants in a miniature two site, recirculating, shallow water culture system.

The plants are fed a two part hydroponics nutrient formula while air bubbles are delivered directly to the roots in the water.

This creates a highly oxygenated nutrient rich environment that plants can always drink and breathe from.

The JrPonics BubbleGarden makes hydroponics easy!

We bought this for our 9-yr. old niece. She's really smart - like kind of scary smart. She's curious about everything, so I figured this might be an interesting thing for her. She and I spent the afternoon putting this together, after picking out her fish (a blue Beta that she name Sapphire). It takes a little bit of concentration to get everything hooked up right but we did. When we plugged it all in, the pump didn't seem like it was running as strongly as it should be. After trying a bunch of fixes, I came to the conclusion that the pump was the problem. This was a Saturday, about 5:30 pm. I figured I would call the number and leave a message, and hopefully hear from someone on Monday. But to my surprise, I actually got a human - a live one - on the phone! And was nice! And knowledgeable! And helpful! He promised to send a new pump right away. He was in Florida, we're in Illinois. The new pump was at my niece's house on Tuesday and it now works like a charm. Little Sapphire loves her new home and I love the customer service that we received. Seriously...when does that happen anymore? Thank you!!

This is a phenomenal educational tool that any kid will love. Not only does it teach them, in a fun way, how to care for a pet (if you choose to put a fish or animal in yours) but it introduces them to hydroponics and horticulture. Set up is so simple that my 8 year old did most of the work (which is VERY lite) and she absolutely loves checking up on how everything is doing. It's also sparked a huge interest from her in gardening and the environment.

I can't recommend this highly enough. Just get it. Well worth the price.

This is a really cool product. Everything you need included, just add the pet of your choice. I love watching my fish and my plants are growing strong. Every household with children (or not) should have a JrPonics FishGarden. Very educational and fun. What more can I say but buy one (or two) today!

we bought one of these junior Ponics gardens from online and received it in just a few days. I gotta say that im honestly impressed with the detail and quality that goes into this product. over the years I bought literally every single hydroponics kit for kids that's on the market and have never once been impressed until now. the kit contains everything to get started and is so easy to use.. a kid could do it. What am I talking about? I bought this little garden for me! all in all well worth $40 for a very nice introduction to both aquaponics and hydroponics. Good job Junior Ponics!

Well worth the money spent. For everything you get, it's a clear deal to buy it here. My son loves it too. This might get me to grow more plants in the future. Fast shipping and easy seller! Now if only I would place a northern pike in the tank and watch it grow!

Love this product! Has easy set up and simple to follow instruction booklet filled with tips and information. My 6 year old daughter helped me set it up and has really enjoyed having it. It has also taught both of my kids a lot about plant and animal life and how they coincide. Also love having the fresh herbs around any time of year I highly recommend this to anyone of any age. Very cool addition to our home.

This tank is far too small for a betta. Bettas require at least 2.5 gallons of water, as well as a heater and a filter. They also need hides, which this tank does not provide. Please don't put a betta in this size tank, it's really really not humane. If you want to get your child a good gift that will teach him or her to care properly for animals, I would recommend starting with a 5 or 10 gallon tank with a betta and a few snails in it. He or she will be happy to see the fish enjoying all of the space it has, and will also learn proper care for animals.

Bettas are carnivorous fish, meaning they dot eat plants. They also are tropical, coming from rice paddies in Thailand. So, they need a water heater. They also require at least 2.5 gallons of free swimming space, due to having "brethrin" in the large rice paddies. This is basically a death trap for a betta, or most likely any other fish. DO NOT BUY!
