Care instructions


ecobox contains coconut fibre tablet, wooden plant stick for writing on, compostable planting cup and a plant seed bag.

  • Remove the sleeve, slide the lid off the box and take out the contents. Paint the wooden box with the included coloured pencils.
  • Open the plant seed bag and place the seeds in a glass of lukewarm water overnight to soak.
  • Place the compostable growing pot in the box, fill it with the coconut fibre tablet and slowly pour water up to about 2 cm below the edge of the cup.
  • About 5 minutes later, the coconut fibre tablet has transformed into coconut fibre soil as if by magic.
  • Label the plant stick (e.g., with the planting date) and/or paint it and carefully place it in the ground. und. Scatter the pre-soaked seeds on the ground and cover the planted seeds with some coconut fibre soil so that they are completely covered.
  • Place the ecobox in a bright, warm place (e.g., on the windowsill) and only water moderately (about 40 ml about every 3 days – avoid waterlogging!). Cover the box with a glass. Now it's time to be patient! Remove the glass for an hour daily to provide the plant with fresh air.
  • After about 12-18 days, the mimosa will start to sprout. Continue to water the plant moderately.
  • Flowering starts about 3-4 months after cultivation at the earliest.
  • As soon as your mimosa gets too big for the ecobox, you can transfer the plant with the compostable seed pot into a flower pot with some soil. You can use the wooden box itself e.g., as a pen holder, gift or toy storage box!
