Why people love it
  • A miniature indoor countertop garden
  • Grow up to 7 plants at the same time
  • Easy to use, foolproof operation

This countertop hydroponic kit is perfect for those who want to grow herbs in their kitchen rather than their backyard. If you don't have a lot of garden space but want to plant and grow, this is the reliable planter for you.

The buttons are a bit clunky and the plastic is flimsy.


Setup: This is one of the easiest hydroponic systems you'll ever set up. It takes literally minutes to fill the water tank, assemble the layers, add the growing media, and plant your seeds/seedlings. You'll love how easy it is to get the garden growing, and the package actually comes with seed packets for 7 gourmet herbs, including Thai and Genovese basil, Thyme, Dill, Chives, Mint, and Curly Parsley.

Ease of Use: The hydroponic system is supremely easy to use, thanks to the built-in LED control panel that gives you all the watering and aerating options you could want. The control panel will let you know when you need to add water, more nutrient solution, or growing media. The LED grow light will help to speed up growth of the plants, even if your mini-garden is indoor and out of direct sunlight.

Capacity: The garden can hold up to 7 small plants at once, and it's designed to be compact and used indoors. Don't expect enough plants to feed a family, but it's more than large enough to grow herbs for use in your cooking.

Price: At $215, this is definitely the most expensive of the hydroponic systems on our list. However, given its automated operation and ease of use, it's one worth considering if you want to grow your own herbs indoors.
