Catit Senses Grass Planter

Getting Started

Thank you for having purchased a Catit Senses Grass Planter!
Please make sure to follow the planting instructions in order to get as much fresh cat grass as possible.

Planting instructions

Fill the Grass Planter base with water and allow the seeds to soak overnight.
Cover the bowl with a sheet of paper towel.
Rinse and pour the seeds into the bowl to let dry for a few hours.
Afterwards, keep the seeds moist with a wet paper towel or spray bottle.
Keep at it until the seeds have sprouted. Lift them out by holding the paper towel by its corners.
Add the bag of vermiculite to the bowl.
Spread the sprouted seeds evenly onto the vermiculite surface. Do not mix.
Add the grid cover once the grass starts growing.
Water every so often. After a few days, the grass is ready.

Tips for best results:

  • Keep the Grass Planter at ambient temperature near a light source.
  • Add water according to your local environmental conditions. Consider when and how much water is given at any point in time, as overwatering will cause fungi growth.
  • Push the grid cover down every once in a while, as the growing grass can push it up.


How long does it take for the grass to grow?

It takes about 10 days for the grass to become fully grown.

How long does the grass stay good for once it is fully grown?

Always keep an eye on the overall condition and freshness of the grass, as to judge when to plant a new batch. On average, the grass will stay fresh for about 1-2 weeks once fully grown.

The seeds seem to have become moldy. What can I do prevent this?

It’s important to keep the seeds moist, not wet. Water the seeds according to your local environmental conditions. Consider when and how much water is given at any point in time. If you give the seeds too much water, they will start to rot and mold will appear.
