Hydroponics is the method of growing plants in the nutrients that they need instead of soil. The plant foods are simply put into water instead and it makes a solution for the plants to live in. Vegetables, flowers and herbs can all be grown in water.
Hydroponics is an easy hands-on way to get students interested in science at a young age. It’s something that really draws them in, something they can use, along with the principles of biology, chemistry and physics.
The Growth Cycle of a Plant
From germination, to seedlings, to vegetative growth, all the way to harvest – this guide shows
kids the full lifecycle of a plant.
What Plants Need to Grow
By growing in a hydroponic environment, the “cloak” of using soil is removed – kids will learn
how proper nutrition, water, and light help a plant to thrive.
Where Food REALLY Comes From
No longer will food be something that just magically shows up on their plates. By growing edible
leafy greens, your child will learn exactly what happens before the food they eat hits their
mouths every meal.

Experiment guide with step-by-step instructions and easy to understand science explanations
Little Genie is a new concept of green home teaching kit presented with Living Plants. The plant inside the bottle is clean and healthy cultured on colorized solid nutrient media. The plant will grow and when it overgrows the size of the bottle, you can deflask your plant into a pot. Once the root system is well developed. Follow the steps to deflask and after-care instructions.
Growing bacteria at home is actually pretty simple. With adult supervision, kids in grade 3 and up can experiment with bacteria found in the air, on household surfaces, and even on their own hands!
You might be wondering: Aren’t bacteria too tiny to see?
Well, usually yes.
But with this bacteria growing kit, you can culture microbe colony that’s large enough to see without a microscope. Kit includes prepared agar, Petri dishes, bacteria growing guide, and more.
The Moshi Mushi Growing Kit is a kid friendly, easy-to-cultivate way to enjoy growing mushrooms at home. This kit is made up of a strong producing commercial oyster strain that produces many mushrooms. It comes fully colonized and ready to fruit. These are great mushroom to sauté and serve on anything. Grey oyster mushroom has many health benefits, including being just as dense in protein as meat and providing excellent benefits to the immune system due to its antioxidants and high in vitamins properties. The required temperature range for your kit is 18-30 Degree Celsius. You can harvest fresh mushrooms up to at least 3-4 cycles.
The growth of a seed into a young plant or a seedling is called germination. Planting seeds and watching them grow is a wonderful activity for kids. There are lots of opportunities for experimentation while learning about how plants grow.
The seed germination pouch was developed as an inexpensive, space-saving replacement for pots and similar containers used to grow plants. Seed Germination Pouch allows kids to watch how seeds sprout, which is a process normally hidden by dirt.
Seeds are placed in the trough formed by the paper wick, water or a substrate of choice is added and the seed germination pouch is placed in an upright position. The composition of the nutrient solution can be varied as desired.
Most seeds can be grown in the seed germination pouch. However, if the seed is very small, such as tobacco seeds, it is better to moisten the paper wick before placing the seeds. This will prevent the small seeds from falling through the perforations. This pouch dimension is suitable for small seeds such as Wheat, Cotton and Rice.
If the seeds is dicotyledons (such as soybean) or hard seed coats (such as rice) we advise to put the seeds in the seed germination pouch after soaking.
