Care Instruction

Growth conditions and cultivation results vary depending on the cultivation environment such as weather conditions, area, and altitude.

* When sowing seeds, avoid midsummer and midwinter as much as possible, and choose a time that is easy to manage. (If the temperature does not reach the optimum temperature for germination and cultivation, germination may not occur or growth may be poor.)
* Be careful not to dry the soil surface until germination and in the early stages of growth.
* Do not use seeds for food or feed.
* Please handle with care so that children do not accidentally put seeds or soil in their mouths.
* Please keep away from direct sunlight and humidity and store in a cool place until you start cultivation.
* Sunlight is required for plant growth. Please cultivate in a place exposed to sunlight such as a balcony or a window.

How to start
The tail strap is a water-absorbing strap. Water is sucked up from the tail and connected to the basket, and the plant grows.

Cultivation points
After germination, place in a sunny and well-ventilated place. For watering, add water when the cup runs out of water.
