    How are you supposed to rinse the tank? Ordered salad pods. Came missing 2 domes. One pod did not sprout.

    • Hello Carole, The best way to rinse the tank is to pull the top deck off with all of your plants, put it aside somewhere safe, dump all the water out of your bowl and proceed to clean it/ rinse it. You can even put it in the dishwasher if you would like. Just the bowl. Then refill with fresh water, replace the deck with your plants, and that's it! You could also purchase from our website the rinse and refill siphon, where you will not have to move your garden at all. I am sorry about the missing domes, I can not help you through our blog, but the quickest way to reach our customer service team is through facebook messenger. I am sure they can help. Thank you
