Wherefore art thou Tropical sage?

There is something mysterious about this perfectly bicoloured plant. As if the scarlet flowers of Tropical Sage (also called: scarlet sage) took extra care to grow away from the leaves, well in the sight of all.

It will grow!


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.


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

    • The leaves of my Tropical Sage have a strong smell, is that normal?

      Yes, completely. Your plant naturally secretes some components that can smell strongly.

    • Is my plant edible?

      No. Even though Tropical Sage is family of (regular) Sage, it's a decorative plant. It's not edible.

    • Can I repot my Tropical Sage?

      No, your Tropical Sage is an annual, after the flowering it tires and dies…
