Who are you Spicy bush basil?

Study session:
The original name "Basil" comes from "basilicum" in Latin, which means "royal". Rumour has it that this plant was born to adorn the Queen's pizzas... Anyways, the rowdy Spicy Bush Basil beats cousin Basil in terms of fragrance #FamilyRivalry. Dare to tame this fiery bush and it's slightly spicy flavour, and your cooking will be of noble status.

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

    • My Spicy Bush Basil takes a long time to sprout!

      Spicy Bush Basil might take a longer time than it's neighbours to germinate (up to two weeks longer). Next to an early bloomer, you might be under the impression that something's gone wrong! If after two weeks you've still got nothing, send us a quick pic via the "Assistance" page on our app.

    • There are algae on my pod!

      No worries, it's pretty common. Spicy bush basil 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.
