I just bought this Vita Grass and used it for the first time recently. It is a complete kit that comes with everything you’ll need to grow cat grass for your pets. In the box they give you 4 bowls, 4 mesh bags with twist ties, a bag of wheat grass seeds and a bag of millennium soil crystals. It was easy to “plant” set up and no mess which was great.
I love the millennium soil! It comes in a bag looking like small crystals and you only use one teaspoon of them added to the bowl full of water. After 2 hours of soaking in the water the crystals grew huge and they feel like jello. This is what you will be planting the wheat grass seeds into. You sprinkle 4 teaspoons of the seeds evenly over the millennium soil and with your hand or a spoon push them down into the soil. Once you have planted the seeds put the bowl in one of the mesh bags. This will keep it safe and if you drop it nothing will come out.
The seeds sprouted right up immediately after being planted. I’d say it took a day and a half before you can see the seeds begin to open up. The directions say that it will take 2-3 days before they sprout. If you want them to start quicker then for the first 24 hours put them somewhere dark like a closet and the following day bring them out. Once they sprout they will shoot right up so fast. You could almost watch it grow right before your eyes.
The Vita Grass doesn’t need sunlight just put the container anywhere that is convenient for you. I put mine where my cats hang out so that it is always available and within their reach. After the grass has been growing for a while you may need to add some water to the bowl. You will notice the crystals shrink after time but as soon as you add water they will soak it up and perform just like new.
So, did my cats like the Vita Grass? They went nuts for it! They loved it just as much as they love catnip. I have 4 cats and every single cat from my oldest to my kitten ate some of the Vita Grass daily. They seem to enjoy it the most when it just sprouts I think that it may have the most nutrients then.
Vita Grass is 100% organic wheat grass that contains enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids. Wheat grass is known to control hair balls, bad breath and increase energy. It is safer and healthier than letting your pet eat outdoor grass which could contain pesticides. Dogs like the Vita Grass too. This was definitely a great purchase I paid around $10.00 for the kit and I still have 3 more bowls to plant. We are still on the first one and it hasn’t died yet. I have a 6 year old and he really got a kick out of this “science project”. This is a great educational activity to do with children. To me this product was worth way more than $10.00.
