DuneCraft is a great company that creates innovative, interesting indoor growing kits. “The company started with a single kit that grows over 25 different varieties of cacti from seed. That kit, called Odd Pods, is still a classic today.” DuneCraft’s products have grown to a vast assortment of products that appeal to children everywhere.
What does DuneCraft have to offer?
DuneCraft has light cubes, hydro-dome terrariums, rock gardens, cactus gardens, science kits, and more. They all come in various styles that may fit your child’s liking. Under dome terrariums you can find a dinosaur dome, farmer’s garden, outer space dome, carnivorous plants terrarium and more. I particularly fell in love with the Fairy Triad, which I am happy to say I get to review!
The Fairy Triad includes Great Blue Lobelia to attract fairies, Thyme to enable you to see them, Evening Star to make fairy brews, clover, a Fairy, Fairy bells, Magical Pinwheel, and Rainbow gravel. Wow! This is enough to create an indoor, magical, fairy garden!
This came with peat pellets that dissolve and turn into soil with water. You wait a little bit, stir, break it up some, and stir some more. I let my soil sit a little while before planting. They suggested placing the decor and rock first before adding the seeds as well. I struggled a little getting the fairy together, but it’s overall cute. I gave up entirely of getting the wand to stay in her hand, because I broke a piece by accident. I decided she dropped her wand in the garden and is looking for it. (I placed it within the soil sticking up.) The windmill is cute and does fit under the dome, which I wasn’t sure if it could. The little bells didn’t come with string or anything, so I have them just sitting in the soil. I may attach those to a stem when we get something growing.
I made mounds like suggested and planted my seeds. Now there weren’t many seeds included, besides the clover. The clover had a lot. I will see in some time, whether or not I get some flowers and thyme with this, but I know I will at least see clover. If I don’t see anything, I may just buy some seeds and add them myself. Giving this review is going to take a few weeks to know whether or not they grew nicely, I will be posting a follow up when I see something sprout!
For now, it’s cute and was easy to get started. The instructions actually do include some Irish folklore in it and story telling for you to tell your kids some more about fairies and the specific plants they included. We managed to set it up nicely and my daughter is excited about possibly seeing fairies. (Yes, I know they’re not real.) We have the fairy triad placed in the bay window where the dog is always looking out. Now when the dog barks, I tell my daughter “she must’ve seen a fairy!”
