Want to do some indoor gardening? Why have a regular planter when you could have a planter-aquarium mash-up?
The AquaSprouts Garden, as the manufacturer notes: "turns any standard 10-gallon aquarium (20" x 10" x 12") into a self-sustaining ecosystem, using the beauty of aquaponics."
In this system, the fish produce waste and the plants use that waste as nutrients while cleaning the water for the fish. The company suggests using the kit to grow leafy greens and herbs while engaging kids with the aquarium.
It is even creating specialized STEM educational curricula to incorporate aquaponics into everyday classrooms. Available for $169.95 with free shipping (fish not included).
