About this item

  • Bring the garden inside with the Back to the Roots Water Garden. This mini aquaponic tank is a closed-loop ecosystem — the betta fish waste fertilizes the plants on top, and the plants filter and clean the water for your fish — not your average betta fish bowl!
  • Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture, or fish farming, and hydroponics, or growing plants in nutrient-rich water. The fish excrete ammonia that would become toxic to the fish in a regular fish bowl. In the Water Garden, the ammonia-rich waste is pumped up to the grow bed and absorbed by the plants, helping them grow twice as fast as in traditional farming! The clean water is then filtered back to the tank, creating a low-maintenance, self-cleaning cycle to foster a healthy fish and herb garden.
  • The Water Garden aquaponic kit comes with everything you need to get started including: 3-gallon fish tank, organic wheatgrass and radish sprout seeds, a coupon for your betta fish, fish food, natural fertilizer, a silent, submersible water pump, gravel, and growstones.

Our story


How we got our start
In a college class, we learned that mushrooms could grow entirely on spent coffee grounds. After watching hours of how-to videos and turning our college apartment into a science experiment, we gave up our corporate job offers and became full-time urban mushroom farmers in Oakland, CA.
What makes our product unique
Our indoor gardening kits were created from a passion to reconnect families to food. We want to inspire everyone to ask where their food comes from and experience the magic of growing it themselves.
Why we love what we do
We feel so fortunate to be able to work every day towards a mission we love and are so passionate about. We think there is a false divide in business - of "not for profits" or "for profit companies" - they should all just be "for purpose"!

Product Description

Back to the Roots is on a mission to Undo Food. In a college class, we learned mushrooms could grow entirely on spent coffee grounds. After watching hours of how-to videos and turning our fraternity kitchen into a big science experiment, we eventually decided to give up our corporate job offers to instead become full-time mushroom farmers. What started as curiosity about urban farming has turned into a passion to Undo Food and reconnect families back to where it comes from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect product with the right fish and plants
By Alec on April 9, 2016
I recommend using ghost shrimp,a snail, and a clean fish of your choice to make the tank close to self sustaining.Also the best plant is lucky bamboo...so get rid of the grow stones and put marbles instead.And buy more rocks for the tank.

5.0 out of 5 stars We love it!
By Amazon Customer on March 7, 2017
We've had the water garden for a little over 2 months now and it's been great! We originally planted the seeds that came in the kit but like others had said the seeds get everywhere and sprouts start growing in the aquarium and the plants all died are a couple weeks anyway. Now we have bamboo growing. It's been about 2 weeks with the bamboo and so far so good. Our fish (Marvin) seems happy and our cat (Eddie) loves sitting next to the tank and watching him. We also made sure to get a beta fish heater per the recommendation of others and we got a snail (Harold). After a couple weeks there was a lot of alge starting to grow but Harold cleaned it right up in the first couple days and the water is nice and clear now.
So far it seems we need to take the plants out and clean out the tray every couple weeks. It's a little bit of a hassle but not hard.

By John Cantu on July 5, 2015
I love it- follow all their directions with the seeds and I have a crop ready to use tomorrow of the wheat grass and radish sprouts. It's simple and cute in my corner of my work space at home. It's quiet, and no fish stink. My betta seems so happy, and the water is still clean after two weeks. I feel like I should dump a little out and refill with fresh water soon.

My brother got the same tank, but didn't follow directions, his tank got filthy quickly because he was over feeding his betta, of course any tank would get messy if you chunk a whole bunch of flakes in it daily. lol! We cleaned it together, it's a two person job for sure, but totally worth it. Self-cleaning is true to a degree, but any living creatures or plants require our care and wisdom too. lol! Some people on here are complaining about doing some work, but come on, it's a very fun and rewarding chore I think. It makes my morning happier to see my sweet fish and little sprouts growing.

Radish sprouts and wheat grass are low light so I have them right to the side of my front window, my front window doesn't get direct rays of sun, but I think its been just enough to draw the plants towards it and give them some sun light nourishment. :D

I give it 5 stars because it is what you make of it, and for me it's been a good make! Attached is a photo from just one week of starting this thing with seeds! :D

Reviewed in Canada on July 28, 2015
Fun for the kids but dont expect its gonna take care of itself, you do need to clean it up every c2-3 weeks cause algea will build up and the pump wont pump all the fish garbage either. Pump is also pretty loud after a while too, my first one you had to jiggle the power wire a lot to get the noise down from the pump so they sent me another one and that one started doing the same thing after about two months. Also the plastic from the top is very very thin and starts bening real fast so it doesnt wold too good in the frame.
