Care instructions


Birky contains coconut fiber granulate, clay granulate, compostable planting pot and a plant seed packet.

  • Carefully peel off the sticker.
  • Open the seed packet and put seeds in a glass with luke warm water. After 24 hours remove seeds from water and plant the seeds about 1 cm below the surface of the granules in the Birky. Slowly pour approx. 30 ml of water into the Birky.
  • Place in a bright, very warm place (temperature above 20°C) and water moderately until germination (approx. 20 ml about every 3 days). The granules should not dry out – avoid waterlogging! Cover the planted seeds with a glass.
  • Remove glass daily for 1 hour to give plant air. The banana plant will begin to germinate after about 2-4 weeks, sometimes it can take up to 4-8 weeks. Continue watering the plants moderately.
  • If the plants get too big, simply transplant them with the compostable pot into a flower pot with some soil. The Birky can then be used as a pen holder, for example!
