Care Instructions


ecocan contains certified organic seeds and special growing media.

  • Simply open the container by breaking the two glue tape strips on the side of the lid. Use the cover as a coaster.
  • Carefully pour about 60 ml water in the pot.
  • After 5 minutes, peel off the sticker on the bottom of the can to drain any excess water.
  • Keep the ecocan in a bright, warm place and water moderately until plants are germinating (approx. 40 ml every 3 days). Make sure that the granulate doesn‘t dry up – avoid waterlogging!
  • After about 6 to 18 days, the plants will start to grow. Continue to water moderately.
  • Herbs can be harvested after about 3 months.
  • After 8 months, the entire container can be replanted into a larger pot with soil in it. The ecocan will be slowly composted and thus turns into valuable nutrients for the plants.
