JrPonics Set Will Get Kids (And Adult Kids) Excited About Hydroponics and Aquaponics

hydroponics-set-1

Aquariums can be tedious and hard to take care of. But the JrPonics set, pictured above, is designed for kids. That means it’s so simple to maintain, well, even a kid can do it. And he’ll learn all about hydroponics in the process. See, the JrPonics kit combines a little herb garden that sits atop a fish-living compartment. The plants grow and eventually feed off the fish’s, uh, excrement (not exclusively, however) while simultaneously oxygenating the water. Your child will witness a symbiotic relationship that could spark interest in a host of educational and intellectually motivating topics.

The JrPonics kit comes with the following:

Air Pump, Tubing and Air Stone Gravel Mix Net Cups, Grow Stones and Foam Pucks Basil & Mint Seeds FritzZyme® Nitrifying Bacteria Nitrozime® Seaweed Extract General Hydroponics® FloraDuo® A & B Hydroponics Nutrients Betta Bites® Fish Food 1oz Foliar Spray Bottle 30-page Full Color Instruction Manual.

For $65, this can make a great Christmas gift for anyone looking to steer their kids away from the mind-numbing presents most people are likely to get this Holiday season.
