The cutting edge of houseplant cultivation. This terracotta kit has a glazed interior and is outfitted with a passive hydroponic system known as “wicking,” which brings water and nutrients up to the plant's roots. So whether you forget to water, overwater, or both, this planter's got you covered. Comes equipped with everything you’ll need to start growing, just add water and set in a sunny window.

How long does it take to grow?
Bonsai seeds take 2-4 days days to sprout.
How much sun will it need?
Bonsai trees thrive in temps between 72°-90°F and with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight (an unobstructed south or west-facing window is best). Starting in Mar-Sept will provide longer days and thus optimal light. If starting during cooler months, it’s recommended that you supplement natural light with a grow light (fluorescent or LED).
Can I put it outside?
This Grow Kit is designed to grow a bonsai tree; however, you can transplant the plant into a pot or the ground for a larger and more robust plant. Transplant outside into a location with full sun after the threat of frost has passed, and sprouts are at least 2” tall. Harden off plant for 5-7 days by placing it outdoors in partial sun during the day, and bringing it indoors at night.
How is it reusable?
The stainless steel net pot and recycled glass grow medium can both be reused—simply rinse with hot water. Add new seeds and use soil or coco pith to help seeds germinate. Use a water soluble fertilizer and follow its instructions.
About Modern Sprout:
We got our start by being really into eating (who’s not?). The fresh, homegrown herbs that we desired were not supported by our yard-less home and busy lifestyle.
Determined to find a solution, we turned to our windowsills and put pen to paper. By making our own hydroponic system that hadn’t yet existed in a seamless, beautiful and accessible way, we grew foolproof plants and even maintained our self-esteem (after a few tries).
We’re you. Modern Sprout was founded by two regular thumb-colored people inside our Chicago home. We create thoughtfully crafted products to simplify plants and indoor gardening, so you feel good.
Modern Sprout Mission:
At Modern Sprout, we see gardening as meditative and thoroughly rewarding, yet we understand it’s not without its headaches. Our mission is simple: uncomplicate indoor gardening. By using the logic of hydroponics redesigned into beautiful, space-savvy products, we help you overcome modern gardening challenges. Modern Sprout products are thoughtfully crafted to bring you the holistic qualities of plants, frustration-free.
