Instructions for Growing Your Chia Pet® Planter

The following Instructions are different than those printed on Chia Seed packages but are procedures used by JEI

Step 1: Soak your Chia Planter in water for half an hour.

Step 2: In a separate container, mix 2 teaspoons of Chia Seeds with 1⁄4 cup water. Stir mixture occasionally for half an hour to form a gel-like paste which will help seeds adhere to your Chia Planter.

Step 3: Empty excess water from your planter and place planter on the drip tray provided.

Step 4: Spread the chia seed mixture evenly on the grooved surface of your planter, using a small knife, a spoon or your fingers. Depending on the surface of your planter, you may not use all of the seed mixture. Don’t water your planter for 2 days to let the seeds adhere to the planter so they won’t slide off. NOTE: Don’t worry if the chia seed are looking very dry, they will start to sprout once you add water.

Step 5: After letting the seeds adhere to your planter for 2 days, fill your Chia Planter with water. Place Planter in drip tray. Keep your planter filled with water daily. Once you add water to your Chia Planter, the dry seeds will become moist and begin the growing process. TIP: Place a plastic bag loosely over the Chia Planter for a few days until the seeds sprout or mist your planter daily to moisten the seeds.

Step 6: When the growth appears leggy or overgrown, it is time to remove the old growth. Chia Planters should be washed and can be replanted indefinitely.
