Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor instructions and insufficient supplies I just received the Water Garden materials. Most look fine, but the water lilies (really the main plant in the garden) came with no instructions for planting. When I looked up how to plant them online every place said they needed to be placed in soil and then covered with small stones, and that they need to have an active growing tip. This kit has you just place the stones at the bottom of the tub (per the instructions) and only one of my 6 water lilies (I have two sets) has an active growing tip. I will try just rooting the lilies in the gravel/stones, but am concerned they will not grow. Maybe they will and I can change my review, but I am not thrilled with the lack of instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snails everywhere! The kit includes everything but the water! The oxygenating plants anchored under the gravel at the bottom just fine. The plants and duckweed appear to replace themselves as the old parts die. In my water garden, the lily pads are struggling but they are not getting as much sunlight as required and the temperature is cooler than it should be. All snails delivered lived and I have MANY tiny little snails that have reproduced since delivery! The kids love it and I have gotten several writing pieces just off of observations.
