  1. Let me start by saying I know nothing, absolutely nothing, about growing anything. I can kill plants very easily. If I tried to care for a weed it would be doomed (maybe I should try that in my yard instead of paying a landscaper!). So, like many others, when we need fresh herbs for whatever I head to the store, use what we need and the rest usually goes unused, and I’m tired of wasting good food.I went in search of something I could use indoors and something very simple and inexpensive and this is what I chose. With prime, got it in 2 days, washed the jar and set it aside till I had time to read the instructions and set it up. Monday, two days ago as of this writing, I found that time. Read the paper that came with it, set it up (planted the seeds) and found a spot for it. The best windows in my house for things like this are shaded by large trees outside so I just set up a swing arm lamp over it and put in a regular $5 grow light bulb (60 watt GE grow light), plugged the lamp into a cheapie mechanical timer set for 14 hours of light and of course 10 hours off per day. I did go online to get a little background on herbs, in particular, basil, to see about how much artificial light to provide and came up with an average from a couple different sites. So today is Wednesday (remember I planted these Monday) and I checked in on these this morning, not expecting to see anything, or perhaps the smoldering remains of the thing. I was shocked to find 4 tiny specks of very light green spots among the pith, the “dirt” that came with this. I got a magnifying glass and verified that these are the very beginnings of surface life of the basil plants. I just checked them again, around 5pm and this time I counted 13 distinct tiny green, I guess you would call them stems, starting to poke up out of the soil. I am impressed, for me who does not have a green thumb but rather a death thumb, this is a big deal! I don’t know if this is normal (I think the instructions said you should start to see something in 3 to 5 days), if this is good or, I don’t know what but I do know this is encouraging and if I can actually get some edible basil out of this thing, I’m going to see what else these guys have kits for. I’d also like to have some thyme and rosemary plants and perhaps a few others. I wish I had a time lapse camera I could aim at this jar and record it, it’s happening that fast. So the plan is to keep you notified of what takes place, because if I can actually get these things growing then this company deserves all the praise. But if I end up fouling this up, I won’t blame them because to me, this has already made the impossible happen. I guess some of you plant people are thinking “what a idiot”, or worse, but this is big folks… Real big, stay tuned if your thumb is deadly also.********Update********The photo is progress after 5 days (almost to the hour) since setting this up. I’m pretty happy. Could anyone that is an experienced plant person tell me, is this normal, better or worse than average?******* Update #2*****The second photo shows progress after 9 days. The instructions suggest when you see good growth you can change the original water and add an eighth of a teaspoon of the included plant food and I did exactly that. Literally, that is all I’ve done to this. The bulb and timer take care of light and the included wick takes care of self watering of the plant. I remain very happy with this product and unless something bad happens I will probably not update this again until I can actually harvest some basil and at that time I will update the most important aspect of the whole project… The taste.*******Final Update*******Sorry folks, I forgot I promised one more update, got busy with other projects, there was an earthquake, a terrible flood, a…well, you get the idea. Quite simply I’ve got basil coming out of my ears! I’ve made about 4 or 5 large pizzas, a few gallons of tomato sauce and a few other things and it just keeps growing. I guess I’m going to just have to pick it and mince it up, mix it with olive oil and freeze it in ice cube trays because I’ll never be able to use it all fresh. As for the taste, it’s every bit as good as the fresh stuff I buy at the store, Living Harvest or Living Herbs or something to that effect is the name of what I usually find in the produce section of my store. Needless to say, I am very happy with this product…and it’s not done producing yet. I have no idea how long these things live or keep growing the leaves because quite honestly, I’ve never had anything I planted inside grow before, let alone wondering about how long it will live. So there you have it.Just for the record, I’m not affiliated with this product in any way whatsoever. I was not given this item not received any promotional pricing. I’m just somebody that likes fresh homemade pizza and hates to go to the store, go shopping etc…My 5 stars stand for this item!

  2. Horrible!Did not grow. Tried everything. Even put in fresh soil and new seeds in one of them and put fresh soil and seeds in a plastic cup. The one in the plastic cup is still flourishing. The one in the jar is dead.Save your money. Use a disposable plastic cup to grow your herbs, or go to your local grocery store and get a plant for $1.99.

  3. I received this set as a gift after putting it on my wish list. First saw the kit in Oprah magazine.Got it for Christmas but waited until warmer weather to start growing the herbs. Once I followed the directions, which were incredibly easy, I waited a few weeks and out sprouted the basil, mint, and parsley. This kit is amazing. The herbs are growing great. And I have used them all for various recipes. So happy with this kit that I also requested an addition to the three. I recently received the cilantro jar. Can’t wait to grow it. You’ll be so happy with these herb jars.****AFTER READING MANY OF THE REVIEWS BELOW, here are some tips that helped me:1. LOTS OF SUN LIGHT. I put these jars on a sill that was southern facing and got Sunlight for 5-6 hours/day. I rotated the jars so each part of the plant got light.2. METICULOUS WATERING. While “self-watering” you still need to add water to jars3. USE THE PLANT FOOD. The plant food helped nurture the herbs. ItReally made a visible difference!4. PICK AND PARE DOWN THE GROWTH. I’m going to dry out my bounty for winter soon and I hope I can keep these through the next season!5. TREAT THE PLANT LIKE A PET. Seriously, it’s a living thing and when we went on a week long vacation, I had my neighbor care for them so they continued to thrive. On shorter trips I added water to fill the jar and took them out of sunlight.

  4. All of my herbs and containers have mold on them, and I am going to have to throw out the entire product as it does not come with additional supplies. The jars were beautiful, but the herbs are not.

  5. I used this product I think for about 3-4 months. Bought around Sep. 2015. I am only reviewing now, Oct. 2016 because I found the desire to reuse the jars.My cilantro sprouting was successful. It had a few months grow time, not nearly as good as my parsley but way better than the basil. It mostly produced enough for me to be garnish, but would quickly replenish so I didn’t kill the plant. It never got big enough to flower so not enough to bolt and taste gross. I could never really get cilantro in time to grow outdoors or even in a container so it was nice to have it through winter.My photo is from 2015 and is with all 3 of my herb jars.I just recent rewashed all the components and as much of the white growing material, and cant wait to start using them again. Need more seeds and some coco fibers and it should work like last time, I hope. Its been raining but I have a sunny window as always with south facing sun. All. Day. Might as well take advantage of it!

  6. I used this product I think for about 3-4 months. Bought around Sep. 2015. I am only reviewing now, Oct. 2016 because I found the desire to reuse the jars.Few of the basil seeds sprouted, which made me suspect poor quality or I messed up and made the majority mold. The basil was a little hard to manage but it had a second wind. Basil got used for pizza toppings and salad, not enough for pesto.My photo is of all 3 herb jars going at once. Got them separately before they the 3 packs.I just recent rewashed all the components and as much of the white growing material, and cant wait to start using them again. Need more seeds and some coco fibers and it should work like last time, I hope. Its been raining but I have a sunny window as always with south facing sun. All. Day. Might as well take advantage of it!
