The decorative wood box is filled with oats, rye, wheat, and barley and they only take 4-6 days to grow
Gives cats a safe alternative to nibbling on your houseplants, which can be potentially toxic to them if swallowed
All you need to do to serve your cat is place this garden near your kitty's food dish or in an area they frequent and they'll find it
Please note seeds come in one bag that you disperse into the four compartments.
Remove the netting from pellets and replace into each compartment. Pour 3 ounces of warm water onto each pellet in your planting container. Wait 10 minutes for the pellets to absorb the water. Remove about 1 teaspoon of soil from each pellet and set aside. Open seed pack and stir seeds into the soil. Using the soil that you set aside in step 4 cover the seeds and lightly mix. Add water if necessary to keep soil and seeds moist-however, over watering can lead to a fungal and mold growth. Drain any excess water from the bottom tray. Do not allow the seeds to dry out. Lightly mist your garden daily to keep moist. Keep in a location that is between 65-70 degrees F. When the grasses are 3” to 4” tall, you can treat your kitty to its garden.
It’s good for the price if you don’t use all the seeds at once
on May 25, 2020
Bought this and it came very fast. I’ve tried cat grass before but never growing it from seeds. I followed the instructions and they were pretty clear and easy to follow, I did not use all of the seeds my first try. It seemed like a lot of seeds to use for the tiny sections you have. I used plenty but still saved some for another two rounds and for that I think the price is worth it. I do think you need to water it regularly and have good air flow by it. I would move it outside for a few hours a day and then back in. My first round the grass/soil produced mold bc I kept it indoors in a cooler area of the house.
Won’t buy again

The planting of this was fine. But on day 3 I couldn’t keep my 2 cats from digging in the soil and pulling out the seeds and sprouts and eating all of it , then throwing up with all that soil they swallowed! I live in an apt so have no access to grow it outside away from them - had to hide it high on a bookshelf where there’s barely any light. Perhaps that’s why I never got that rich green color? When it grew it was all barely green, more yellow- like wet hay. So - no go unfortunately. Also - my smaller- sized girl couldn’t manage eating it at all- her mouth is too small. I have to chop it into her food bowl.
on second thought

we've purchased several of these planters for our own cats at home, and as gifts for cat loving family and friends over the years. we've been finding the refills unnecessarily wasteful, though, with our collection of dozens of (double) plastic refill containers that are not biodegradeable or earth friendly stacked in a corner and growing, in hopes of a possible future use. now, with refills no longer available, the planters themselves are a sad waste. Why does Smartcat not offer bulk seed bags and bulk soil disks, without the individual, single serving waste and, over time, unwarranted extra expense to customers who are already buying the planters and would appreciate a kinder, more appreciativewe've purchased several of these planters for our own cats at home, and as gifts for cat loving family and friends over the years. we've been finding the refills unnecessarily wasteful, though, with our collection of dozens of (double) plastic refill containers that are not biodegradeable or earth friendly stacked in a corner and growing, in hopes of a possible future use. now, with refills no longer available, the planters themselves are a sad waste.

Kitty loves this!
on Apr 12, 2020
One of my cats constantly destroys houseplants, so I've given up on anything that I can't keep out of her reach. I got this hoping I might get her to eat this instead. The seeds were quite fun to watch grow, and my cat loved eating the grass once it was ready. She still tried to eat other stuff, but I'm happy to be able to give her something safe.
The grass lasted me about 4 weeks, and that's with me being terrible at upkeep. I definitely did not spray it as recommended and I'm amazed it lasted as long as it did. Also, the kit comes with way more seeds than you plant at once so you can re-plant several times. Definitely recommend!

I tried growing this grass and the dirt stuff they send with it does grow mold fast so I threw it away and bought some miracle grow potting dirt and re-planted more seeds. It does come with a big bag of seeds so I have plenty to last me a couple times of growing grass. I love the box it comes with it’s so cute and sturdy it also has plastic pegs on the bottom so it stays in place.
Company did not respond back
on Apr 24, 2020
My tray is cracked from shipping. Which made it inot attractive. It leaked in the wooden tray. Which made it leak on the floor. I could not get it replaced. No response back from the company. Plus I though it would have some cat nip in it ....it did not! That was the main Reason why I purchased it. Not Having the company respond back to me was reason enough not to purchase it again.
Perfect Grass for Indoor Kitty!
on Apr 5, 2020
My kitty loves this!! It was simple to plant -- I covered my planted seeds with cling wrap to keep soil moist until seeds sprouted which I recommend -- and within a week it was ready for kitty to start eating! It came up very quickly. I had it in a window with southern exposure. The wooden container it is in is very sturdy & does not tip over with kitty chows down. The plant cells lift up & there is a trough underneath -- I keep water in this & water the grass from below instead of pouring water into the little cups/cells. This works great. Kitty is SO happy!!

Thought the product was ready for planting. It needs peat moss and there's no instructions. There's a round disk and a package of seeds. May sound stupid, but I'm not sure what to do with them. Just received it so I can't comment on how easy it grows and how popular it will be with my cats.
placement of directions grew mold
on Apr 10, 2020
I understand this is partially my own fault but when I first received it, I was confused as to why there were no directions. Turns out the directions were wedged right under the soil. After a few days I noticed mold and tore the plant out of the box, finding the palate directions wet and covered in mold. I will order another because my cats love cat nip and now I know to take the whole thing apart first.
Dont use turf tablets, use only water
on Apr 12, 2020
Don’t use the turf tablets , these are made of hors or cow stinky poop and get moldy. I tossed the turf and replanted the seeds just in water. It always works better for me. I got the set only because I was curios and liked the box. But you literally can by seed at wholefoods for less than $1 and use any vanity to grow the seeds.
