I hate to start seeds indoors. Do you? I find it is really a giant hassle to set it all up in my living room (lights, tables, dirt, shooing my cat away from nibbling seedlings, etc.) I have decided without a green house it simply isn’t worth it. The plantarium garden lab on the other hand has some potential.
For 40$ you get a set of 3 plantariums. Using a nutritive and non-toxic gel created in collaboration with NASA scientists, Plantariums allow you to watch plants grow both above and below the surface. Seedlings can later be transplanted into your garden and the kit even includes mini-pots and peat pucks. What I would love to see is the gel and parts available individually, so that I can use other glass containers I have around the house to temporarily re-purpose into plant starters that have a bit of style.
