Recipes for oregano

Chef's specials

Make sure that your Oregano is well dried before you use it, otherwise the taste may be bitter. Well known in combination with tomatoes and pizzas, Oregano is also good in combination with fried potatoes with (Jerusalem) artichokes.

It will grow!

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 about oregano

Questions /Answers

    • Can I use the fresh leaves of my Oregano?

      You can, it is not toxic, but the taste will be a bit bitter. It'll be better to dry them first.

    • My Oregano doesn't seem to germinate…

      Oregano is very likely to germinate slower than its neighbours (this can take up to two weeks). Apart from that, if it is also next to a Basil -one of the fastest germinating plants-, it could look like your Mint is even slower. If you haven't seen anything happening in two weeks, don't hesitate to contact us in the "Assistance" section of this app.

    • There are algae on my pod!

      No worries, it's pretty common. Oregano 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.
