Literally a window into an unseen world, the Root-Vue Farm enables students to observe and chart the development of a plant's root system. A fun way to learn that there's much more to a plant than (usually) meets the eye. The complete package includes the durable, molded chamber; soil; plant labels; root growth rate markers; three packets of fast growing seeds; and instructions. The chamber incorporates an angled viewing window with a removable light shield to keep roots close to the window surface. A drainage basin/reservoir and self-watering device regulate soil moisture for optimum growing conditions.
