This transparent "nature's window" allows gardeners of all ages to watch seeds sprout and grow into plants-right before their eyes! Children observe roots developing and growing in the soil through the large, transparent Sprout and Grow Window. Comes with a step-by-step guide that provides instructions, suggested activities and journal pages to fill in observations, while following the process from seed planting to full-grown plants.
The Sprout and Grow window is narrow enough to show the root systems of the included peas and beans as they develop, but the window is also wide enough to allow the sprouts to grow. With regular attention, gardeners of all ages will be able to see their efforts in as few as five days, as the seeds become sprouts. Are you looking to do a section on plants during the winter? The Sprout and Grow Window is perfect! You can grow your peas and beans year round. Recommended for children ages 5 and up.

- Excellent visual for students Review by karen engates
There are several brands of these "grow windows" out there, and this one is a delight. It was easy to set up, required little space on a window ledge, needed little water, and showed the growth process quickly with our seeds. Students had fun just "growing" the water from the soil tablets, so that was a science experiment in itself! Students get a really good idea of what roots look like, their extension patterns, different types of roots, etc. This was easy to clean when we were done too -- a few taps and everything came out -- and ready to use again.
