Grow. Learn. Discover.

It's not magic - it's nature! Aquaponics employs the same principles as the natural world. The AquaSprouts Garden provides the perfect platform for allowing anyone, anywhere to discover the potential of aquaponics, while bringing a bit of nature indoors. Think about it — fish and plants can comfortably coexist in the same ecosystem. As fish mature and produce waste, plants use that waste as their nutrients to grow, while also cleaning the tank’s water. So why not put those fish to good use?

The Garden kit includes a submersible 160 gallon per hour pump and a mechanical plug timer adjustable in 15-minute increments for controlling flood and drain cycles. Both include 1-year warranty.

Light Bar:

Removable lighting mount allows you to hang a grow light of your choice above the Garden, and can even be further extended to accommodate taller plants. The light bar allows you to use your Garden anywhere, even when there may not be sufficient natural light.

Grow Media:

Expanded clay grow media replaces soil from traditional gardening and serves as the support for your plants. Porous pebbles act as a mechanical filter and biofilter substrate, trapping fish waste and uneaten food while providing ample surface area for beneficial bacteria to grow and convert the waste into nutrients for your plants. (Grow media does not degrade)
