Description

Wherefore art thou Chives?

It's quite hard to find another plant that is even close to being as cool as Chives is. The only thing it demands from you is a nice hair cut from time to time and Chives is willing to flavour up your meals with its characteristic flavour with hints of onion and garlic.

It will grow!

Guaranteed

Your indoor garden supplies all ingredients for a beautiful harvest: water, light and nutrients. In the case of a pod that doesn't sprout (which can happen as we work with natural materials), we will send you a new pod free of charge. Take a look at our FAQ.

Natural

Our seeds are organic

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

The seeds come from special selected seed companies in France. The aromatic seeds are organic and grow in peat and coconut fiber. Our pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

Système hydroponique

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Thanks to our patented Float® design, you only have one thing to do: add water once every two or three weeks when the floater sinks. The plant takes all mineral salts it needs out of the water (these are released into the water over the weeks). Discover the Prêt à Pousser technology.

Questions /Answers about chives

Questions /Answers

    • My Chives don't seem to grow very strong!

      Your Chives will strengthen once cut them, so there's no need to worry, they will always start out very thin. Cut them regularly, but make sure to always keep at least 15cm.

    • My Chives aren't growing straight up!

      Make sure that your light isn't more than 10cm from your plants. If it's too high, it's normal for your plants to fall.

    • There are algae on my pod!

      No worries, it's pretty common. Chives takes some time to germinate, and the rich environment of the substrate is helping the development of algae or mold. Once your plant starts to sprout and grow, its strands will cut off the access to light of the algae, and they will disappear. If the situation seems out of control, do not hesitate to send us a photo in the "Assistance" section of the application.
