Self Watering Planter & Aqua Tank
Back to the Roots brings the wonders of a vegetable or herb garden into any indoor space with our handy little Water Garden. Aquaponics kits have been growing in popularity over the past few years, since they’re a simple, eco-friendly way to garden in an indoor space. Our Water Garden (formerly known as the Aqua Farm) is a self-cleaning fish tank that grows food in a small indoor space. It’s a closed-loop ecosystem – the fish feed the plants and the plants clean the water. Which means you get all the joys of growing your own organic food – without any stress or extra labor.
The Water Garden includes:
- Fish tank and gravel
- Organic seeds and grow stones
- Natural fertilizer
- A coupon for a Betta fish
- Fish food
- A silent, submersible water pump
Unlike other aquaponics kits, our Water Garden is all designed and manufactured in the USA with sustainable products.
The Benefits of Aquaponics Kits:
Aquaponics is a closed-loop, sustainable farming method that combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). It uses 90% less water than traditional farming.
Here’s how aquaponics kits work:
- Fish produce ammonia-rich waste, which can become toxic for your fish if allowed to accumulate.
- Beneficial bacteria in your Water Garden convert the ammonia into nitrates. These naturally occurring bacteria grow really well in your plant pots.
- Nitrates are amazing food for plants! As the plants continuously uptake the nitrates as nutrients for growth, they are also cleaning the water for your fish.
You can grow anything from basil, to salad greens, to hearty root vegetables in our Water Garden.
Health Benefits of Our Water Garden:
Organic, non-GMO produce is costly, and the alternative is dangerous for your health. What’s more, some organic vegetables spray pesticides derived from natural sources that can sometimes be very dangerous to your health as well.
Aquaponics kits can produce a steady supply of organic, pesticide-free vegetables and herbs. The system functions completely without manmade pesticides or fertilizers, and is 90% more water efficient than standard gardening practices – which means more access to healthy vegetables for you and your family.
Vegetables grown in our Water Kit mature more quickly than traditional planters and in-ground gardening. They are much more flavorful than store-bought produce, since they can be picked when fully ripe on the vine. Even organic vegetables in super markets are usually picked before they’re fully ripe so they can endure the trip to the super market. There is a much higher nutritional value and flavor to fully ripe foods.
With these aquaponics kits, you can have a continued supply of organic, non-GMO vegetables that have no need for any type of pesticides.
