......... ABOUT OUR DESKTOP BIODOMES .........
These clear cups are made entirely from plants: corn. Each one is 100% compostable and biodegradable. Growing with these cups helps seeds to sprout because they seal in moisture. The top features a vent hole with removable cover so you can let out excess moisture if it becomes too humid inside the biodome. The covers are labeled with the seed type. When you upgrade to the greenhouse biodome, you also receive a larger gift box, for a bigger, more impressive gift that is twice the size. After the seeds have sprouted, you can re-use the biodome for more seed sprouting with another pot and then compost it when done.
......... ABOUT OUR BIODEGRADABLE POTS and PAPER .........
These fiber pots are a more environmentally sustainable choice than peat-based paper and plastic pots (peat takes thousands of years to form before it can even be harvested). These plant fiber pots also create a wonderful growing medium that can help seeds germinate and plants to grow. They are made from the fiber between the husk and outer shell of a coconut. Seedlings flourish in them and, because the pots can be planted right in the ground, root system and all, stress to delicate seedlings from being transplanted is reduced.
Growing with a biodegradable pot makes everything easy — just plant the entire pot right in the ground. No plastic waste left over.
The fiber inhibits mold growth and helps plants grow stronger root systems. The roots grow right through the sides of the pots instead of balling up inside a plastic pot. When using coir, plants require less fertilizer and are more resilient to disease. The fiber improves moisture flow and actually helps seeds sprout. All pots are made from 100% peat-free renewable fiber.
The seed paper leaves are made from recycled paper and embedded with the seeds to start the garden. Each leaf contains a specific seed type. To start the leaf growing, simply wet it and press it into damp soil.
Made with eco-friendly packaging that is either recycled or meant to be recycled. It is easily biodegradable and compostable.
All paper is made-to-order to promote freshness. Through winter, the wait time after most orders are placed is about 4-7 business days before an order ships.
