Buche - Cultivation Set

Tree Cube

One tree produces enough oxygen every day for 15 people and binds 12 kilograms of climate-damaging carbon dioxide every year. A tree provides shade and protects us from storms. A tree has strong roots and is home to many animals and insects. A tree shows age and dignity, has scars and nests and often accompanies us all our lives. By planting your tree you give life.

Step 1

Take the seeds out of the bag. Fill drinking glass with 2dl lukewarm water. Put the seeds in it for 24 hours.

Step 2

Place the square yurt sack on a saucer (leave compressed soil in the yurt sack).

Pour 300ml lukewarm water into a yurt sack and watch the coconut earth swell. Press the yurt sack a little from all sides to allow the soil to swell completely. Make sure that the soil is completely moist. If necessary, add some more water.

Remove the seeds from the drinking glass and drain. Press 3x holes with a depth of 1 cm into the soil with your finger and put 1 seed in each hole. The holes should be 2-3 cm apart.

Find a location with natural light.

Add some water every day to keep the soil moist but not wet. Touch the earth. Trust your instinct.

Product content

Planting a tree is one of the easiest and most powerful things you can do to have a positive impact on the environment. Here is a description of what is in the tree cube:

Seeds

Seeds of the highest quality and traceability from the region, because the genetic characteristics are of enormous importance for the growing plant material.

Plant pot

The plant pot is made of yurt, which is 100% biodegradable. Simply repot the yurt bag together with the plant into a larger plant pot. In this way, you avoid a re-potting shock.

Earth

Peat-free substrate made of coconut fibre (coconut pulp) awarded the Blue Angel of the Federal Government of Germany for environmentally friendly and sustainable products.

Instruction & Packaging

The instructions made of grass paper. The packaging is made of sustainable raw materials with FSC® certification.
