Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

Watch scented bio seeds grow in front of your eyes - with no soil or water! Using a nutritive and non-toxic gel created by Globus International in collaboration with NASA scientists (and tested on a space shuttle!), Plantariums are life-giving ecosystems in which seeds rapidly germinate. The colourful gel’s transparency makes the seedling and it’s roots visible throughout the entire germination and early plant-growth process! Simply press the seeds into the gel and close the tube. As germination starts, the Plantarium’s plastic vial works as a greenhouse and a miracle of nature unfolds! After the seedling reaches the top of the vial, it can be transferred to soil to fully mature.

Kit includes: 1 gel-filled, kid-friendly plastic vial, specially designed to allow the scent of the plant inside to be smelled without opening the lid; special seeds; wooden planting stick; and detailed instructions.

Ships in assorted seed types and gel colours.

Measures approximately 7" high.
