- Preferably before tearing open the bag, turn it over and carefully
make about 10 small holes in the bottom with a ballpoint pen, large
paper clip or other sharpish, poker-type thing. PLEASE be careful not
to poke your fingers or other body parts!
- Tear open the bag at the top, where there’s a conveniently-provided
notch for this purpose. (Note: we’re not at the cutting-the-bag-with scissors
part yet – that comes in step 4)
- Remove the small foil packet of seeds and the laminated growing
instructions card from the bag. Oh! Maybe you don’t have the little
card, which is why you’re reading this instead. Makes sense.
- Now you can cut the bag along the dotted line where the little
scissors symbol appears (about halfway down the bag.)
- Open the foil packet and spread the seeds evenly across the top of
the soil. Then lightly mix the seeds into the top 1/4 inch of soil – just
enough so that they are covered, but not too deep.
- Place the bag on a saucer or in a shallow bowl. An aluminum pie pan
works great, too. CAREFULLY pour about 1 cup of water into the bag,
trying not to disturb the seeds as much as possible. Once the water
soaks in, if there are a lot of seeds resting on top of the soil you can
just poke them down a bit with your finger.
- Place the bag and saucer/tray in a warm, out-of-the-way place that
does not get a lot of light. Check the bag daily to make sure the soil
stays moist, and water as needed.
- Your seeds should start to sprout in about 3 days. Once you see the
little sprouts poking up out of the soil, move the bag and saucer to a
bright, well-ventilated location (although not in direct sunlight). At
this point you want to water about every 3 days, or more frequently if
necessary to prevent the soil from drying out completely.
That’s it! Your Pet Greens Garden is ready to be enjoyed by your pets when
the grass reaches about 2 inches in height. It can grow up to 7” high, but
should be trimmed at about the 5” point to keep it fresh and healthy. For
more information and tips on keeping your grass fresher longer, please see
“Grass care Instructions” on this website.
Pet Greens Live Grass typically lasts about 2-3 weeks. Follow the
instructions below to maintain healthy growth and keep your Grass fresh
and delicious for its full life-span. Grass cannot be re-potted and should
be replaced on a regular basis.
Water your Cat Grass about twice a week. The best way to water your Cat Grass
is to place the container in a saucer and water it from the bottom. Make sure
the soil stays moist but do not let your Cat Grass stand in water.
Place your Cat Grass in a bright, well ventilated location. Avoid direct sunlight
and/or hot locations. A bright kitchen window is ideal! Cat Grass is considered
a leafy green. The best way to extend the life of your Cat Grass is to put the
container in the refrigerator at night.
Feed to your pet as a healthy reward or snack. Cat Grass can be fed to cats,
dogs, birds, reptiles, and small animals. Adjust the serving size according to the
size of your pet. Reptiles and small animals should only be fed small amounts
of Cat Grass. Consult your veterinarian for more information about the proper
serving size for your pet.
