We initially wet eight seeds, four pea and four bean in damp paper towels. All germinated and we transferred two of each into the window for a total of four plants. All four sent down long roots, but only three of the plants sprouted (one of the pea plants never had any stem or leaf growth). The two bean plants are currently over 20 inches tall each, and the one pea plant is about five inches tall,
The window itself is made of plastic that is not terribly sturdy. It is sufficient for exploration of plant growth and has withstood the handling of my four year old though. She loves to water her plants, and her excitement to show me how they have changed is priceless!
The instructions say to use 40 out of the 50 included soil pellets. Only having 10 left, it only comes with enough for one use, but im sure you can just use your own soil if you choose to do it a second time.
I remember having this experiment in school and I found it very interesting. You can see the roots grow below the soil and learn how seeds work. This would be very good in a classroom setting. It includes a little chart to track the progress of the plants, and also includes information and diagrams on seeds. It is a very economical way to teach plant growing. I think it would also be great as a homeschooling project, or even just a fun experiment. Checking the plants every day to see their progress is fun and also teaches how to keep notes and track progress.
I added just a little bit more water to the 40 soil pellets then they said because it seemed slightly dry. The soil absorbs it and expands immediately. I planted the germinated seeds today and I expect them to do well. Next time I may plant some carrots.
I highly recommend this product if you wish to teach kids about planting, seeds, and roots, and also to provide a fun experiment. If you wish, you can also plant whatever seeds you wish. The size is perfect for a windowsill.
In the product display picture you can see that the unit has what looks to be holes in it. These are not holes as such but the joining of the two faces of the unit. Without this the whole unit would bow outwards once soil is added. This makes cleaning the unit virtually impossible once your first seed growing experiment is over. It also scratches really easily so if you are not careful you will have a slightly opaque unit the next time you use it. The edges can be rough or sharp so this really does have a bad finish to it, cheap.
This product is a good five dollars overpriced and I'm being very fair when I say that. $20 is far too much and I see some sellers are charging $28 which is just plain ridiculous for a few dollars worth of plastic. If it's going to be $20 then the main unit should be far more substantial and reusable.
Cheap and chearful.
