Care instructions


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

  • Slide the lid off the wooden box and remove the contents. Paint the wooden box however you like using the included coloured pencils.
  • Open the mimosa seed bag and place the seeds in a glass of lukewarm water overnight to pre-soak. Then place the brown growing pots next to each other in the box and divide the coconut fibre tablets evenly between the cups placed. Slowly pour water into each cup up to about 2 cm below the edge of the cup. About 5 minutes later, the swelling tablets have magically transformed into coconut fibre soil.
  • Plant the pre-soaked mimosa seeds in a seed pot, cover with some soil and cover the planted seeds with a glass. Open the remaining seed bags, plant one variety in each of the other two cultivation pots and cover them with a little soil so that they are completely covered. Label plant markers and carefully attach them to the respective plant variety so that you can then distinguish between the plants.
  • Place the wooden box in a bright, warm place (e.g., on the windowsill) and only water moderately (approx. 40 ml about every 3 days – avoid waterlogging!). Now you have to be patient!
  • After about 10-20 days, the first green plants begin to germinate and grow slowly. Remove the glass for an hour every day to provide the mimosa with fresh air. Continue to water ecogarden only moderately.
  • About 3-4 months after cultivation, the mimosa slowly begins to flower. After about 3 years of growth at the earliest, the cactus develops a small, yellow flower.
  • As soon as your plants get too big for the ecobox, simply transplant them into flower pots with a little soil using their compostable cultivation pots. Alternatively, you can move the Christmas tree outdoors.
  • You can then use the wooden box itself as a practical pen or toy storage box, for example!
  • About 6-7 years later, the tree can be decorated as a small, living Christmas tree in a flower pot.
