Sprout is a pencil that grows. When Sprout is too short to use as a pencil, plant Sprout to grow herbs
Most pencils, once sharpened down to a stub, serve no further use. At Sprout World, we have created a solution to combat this waste. A pencil with a water activated seed capsule, Sprout can be planted when it becomes too short to use. What was once a writing utensil soon grows into an herb.
How to Plant:
Press the green end into the soil, covering only the capsule. Ensure that you plant Sprout in a location where it will receive plenty of sunlight.
Water your Sprout in order to activate the seed capsule and begin the seed’s germination. Continue to water every day so that the soil stays moist.
If there is still a pencil stub leftover, it can be used as a helpful plant label or it can be removed.
We have planted hundreds of Sprout Pencils and found that they usually germinate in about two weeks. We encourage storing Sprout in a cool, dry place until planting time. For best results, plant Sprout by its first birthday and follow gardening best practices.
