Egglings are precious porcelain eggs that contain a mix of peat and herb seeds! It looks and feels like an extra large egg, but crack the top and discover a garden ready to grow. Eggling cultivation is easy; just water and place in a bright spot. Your Basil, Mint or Spicy Red Pepper will grow for up to five months in the eggling, after which it can be planted directly into a larger pot of soil.
These fabulous gardener gifts are extremely popular in Japan, where they're hand made from white porous ceramic with a terracotta tray and full instructions included. They also come with an extra pack of seeds, so you can ensure your egg hatches something! They make a unique stocking filler or Birthday gift for children or adults!
HOW EGGLINGS WORK:
Place upright and crack the top carefully with a spoon. Tapping too hard may cause the whole thing to shatter!
Place on its terracotta tray. Water slowly until water begins to drain into the tray from bottom of the egg.
Put in a bright room with temperature of 60º F or higher.
Over-watering may cause the seeds to sink too deeply causing them not to germinate.
Once seeds sprout, place in a sunny area. Continue adding water to the tray whenever it dries out, to keep the soil moist.
