Growth guaranteed

The seeds are organic* and the growth guaranteed

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

Our seeds all come from French seed sellers. More than half of our seeds are organic. The substrate in which they grow is made from coconut peat and coir. The Pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

includes all the ingredients needed to ensure the best growth possible for your plants: water, light, and nutrients. If your pod happens to be a little mischievous (which can happen, as with every other living product), we'll send you another pod! You can check out our FAQ for more information.

* Almost all of the seeds we work with are organic.

Système hydroponique

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Thanks to our patented Float® design, you only have one thing to do: add water once every two or three weeks when the floater sinks. The plant takes all mineral salts it needs out of the water (these are released into the water over the weeks). Discover the Prêt à Pousser technology.

Questions /Answers

    • I have two plantlets of Salad, can't I just keep both?

      Not in the pod, they will become each others competitors. Choose the prettiest one and let it grow in peace. If you are really not ready to divorce the other plantlet, repot it in soil.

    • There are algae on my pod!

      No worries, it's pretty common. Virescent Salanova® takes some time to germinate, and the rich environment of the substrate is helping the development of algae or mold. Once your plant starts to sprout and grow, its strands will cut off the access to light of the algae, and they will disappear. If the situation seems out of control, do not hesitate to send us a photo in the "Assistance" section of the application.
