- Where are the roots? Review by Zarah
This was a lot of fun to set up and put together, but I never did see any roots show up in the viewing window. Maybe I'm just impatient, but I grew the vegetable seeds it came with for 2 months and I finally pulled the carrots and they were tiny! If I did this again, I would plant the seeds closer to the front. (Posted on 5/31/13)
