Chia Pets are American styled terracotta figurines used to sprout chia, where the chia sprouts grow within a couple of weeks to resemble the animal’s fur or hair. Easy to Do. Fun to Grow! Even as a planter killer like me, you can simply grow it. Simply plant the seeds in the container or if you want, you can use similar herb seeds such as basil, alfalfa, marjoram or thyme. Usually, wait for 1 – 2 weeks and your chia pet will have a full coat then.
Both kids and adults will love to watch Chia planters sprout and develop into a hilarious creation. The variety is endless! Chia Pets come in all different shapes and sizes. We handpicked some of your favorites below and you can find more on amazon. Since the spring is coming, maybe we should start to celebrate it by “adopting” a pet and add some green on the table.
