"If you have two plantlets, make sure to only keep one. Remove the smaller one to let the biggest one grow unhindered into a nice salad.Make sure that the plantlet you are keeping is far from the grid of your indoor garden. If it's not the case, turn the floater so the plantlet will be on the outerside." — Our mate the gardener

Guaranteed

Your indoor garden supplies all ingredients for a beautiful harvest: water, light and nutrients. In the case of a pod that doesn't sprout (which can happen as we work with natural materials), we will send you a new pod free of charge. Take a look at our FAQ.

Natural

Our seeds are organic

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

The seeds come from special selected seed companies in France. The aromatic seeds are organic and grow in peat and coconut fiber. Our pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

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.

    • Some sort of stem is coming out of my salad, is this normal?

      That's a sign that your Salad is starting to grow old. Either it's too old or it's too far from the light. In the first case, it's time to consume it. In the second case, lower the light.

    • The innermost leaves of my Salad are looking burnt. What should I do?

      This happens to old salads, it can be caused by the light being too strong or a lack of oxygen. Please make sure that your light is at least 10cm above your salad.
