Let its tangy flavour pique your interest.
As an aquatic plant, Watercress gets its name from the shores of the small brooks where it usually grows (a real fish out of water). Its tangy leaves have been said to carry a good number of healing properties ever since Antiquity: it's even supposed to prevent baldness or being an aphrodisiac... #gettinghotinhere. Want to give this bit of green magic a try?
"Chin up, Watercress! With its falling leaves, this plant will stand lower than its neighbours in our gardens, so don't forget to bring it closer to the lamp by propping its pot up on some boxes or old books #vintage." — Our mate the gardener
Watercress is Mustard's and Horseradish's less temperamental cousin, but can still hold its own in dinner arguments with its relatives! It has the same tangy, peppery taste. Tame this Colonel Mustard by blending its leaves and stems into a potato soup with a heaping dollop of cream, or enjoy its full character in a goat cheese and apple slices salad to die for #cluedo.
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 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.

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.
No worries: it's in your Watercress's nature to let its hair down! No need to put stakes, just enjoy this luscious, green waterfall. However, you must always keep your light source less than 10cm away from your plants. If your plant stands lower than its neighbours, you can prop it up with boxes or old books #vintage.
No need to worry: Watercress takes a little long to sprout, and the richness of the pod soil makes it likely to grow algae or fungi. Once your plant starts to sprout and grow, its leaves will cut off their access to light, and they should disappear on their own. If there still seems to be a little too much algae, please send us a picture through the "Help" section of the Prêt à Pousser app.
