Because there is never enough green at home, I offer a small tutorial to easily grow its seeds, indoors or outdoors. In a few days, you will be able to enjoy the decorative aspect of these funny pots with green hair or decide to make them a spring cut to decorate your dishes. Sprouted seeds are very rich in nutrients and vitamins!


- Cotton wool - 2 white cups - Seeds to choose according to your tastes - A marker - Self-adhesive eyes (found at Sostrene Grene)

Budget: 15 euros Duration: 2 weeks to taste your shoots For what age group? : achievable with children from 2 years


1. Stick the sticker eyes on your mug

2. Using your marker, draw the mouth of your character.

3. Add the cotton wool you have moistened to the cup. The cotton wool should almost fill your cup.

4. Generously sprinkle with seeds. You can mix different kinds of seeds but they will not grow at the same speed.

5. After 2/3 days, you will start to see the first shoots point the tip of their nose. Note that the speed of growth depends on the type of seeds you choose. Radishes, watercress, peas grow quickly. Remember to re-moisten your cotton wool every 2/3 days.

6. After about 2 weeks, your cups will have beautiful vegetable hair. You can keep it as a decoration until you want a touch of freshness on your plate. It is then enough to cut your shoots using a pair of scissors.
