It’s empty in here!
I've tried various cat grasses over the years. I use only half a pack, sometimes just a third, wet it thoroughly in the dish and drain; then every day wet it through, then drain immediately. I use the Catit grass system as it reduces the mess when they pull out grass strands and growing medium. No problems with this approach, all packets have grown well. I plant every 10 days or so, have a new one growing on the windowsill while the other is in use.
Nice Grass grows quickly and the cat likes to chew on it, however, the last batch I bought, all 3 packs have these tiny black flies hatch out as the grass grows and the nestle amongst the grass flying out when the cat moves it but they settle around it again. We are hoping its just a contaminated batch
If you want to purchase a cat grass that actually grows this is the one! My cats love to chew on grass and mainly stay indoors so I have tried every type and very few grow but out of 30 packs every single one has worked and grown and not expensive! This one is perfect.
I wouldn't be without this in my household, all my cats are indoor cats and each room has a pot of this on the window sill, the cats graze on it when needed, invaluable and popular with all my cats, easy to grow too, a little difficult to grow in the winter as the days are shorter just takes a little longer, but all in all very easy and within a few days you have growth from the seeds!
My cats were always eating my house plants, so decided to purchase this as my plants were looking so sad. Sow the seeds, I used a pot and I put a plastic bag over the pot and left it for several days then I had a magnificent grass plant that the cats munch at, perfect, no longer are my own plants being eaten to pulp and these seeds grow so quickly, very impressive! Plan to stock up with more, and have grass pot plants scattered around the house for when the cats have the need to munch =^..^=
My house cats love to nibble on grass, but some brands are rather expensive for the time they last. This is a very economical 'grow your own' product. This grass sprouts quickly, and lasts a long time. Coming in a triple pack, it's easy to have the next tray growing ready for the cats to enjoy. Excellent value!
I have been growing his for Sylvie for about 2 years. She eats grass several times a day and I keep 2 bowls available always. I put a layer of about a cm or dry product in a ceramic bowl, keep it damp for several days (careful not to drown at this early stage) and hey presto! It needs to be watered regularly and will only smell if it has a swampy mess under the grass. If this happens, lift the grass out gently (it will come out in one solid piece with a root ball underneath), rinse the bowl and replace grass. This really is essential for an indoor cat!
I used this with miracle grow compost into a 2 inch deep tray - within 10 days the grass was ready for my cat to nibble on! Almost 2 weeks later & the grass is now falling over as there is so much of it! So i think for the next lot of seeds i start off i will share 1 packet of the seeds into 4 or 5 seperate pots deeper than 2 inches that way it won't fall over after a couple of weeks like before & my cat will have a few pots of cat grass located in different areas of the house which he will like! Overall a good quality cat grass, i will buy again.
It took me a couple of tries to get this right - I put too much water in the first lot and drowned the seeds, you need to just put in enough to wet the mixture, but not have it floating in water. However, having got it right I'm really pleased with the results and more importantly so is my cat! She loves to chew, sometimes eat, and also plays with the blades of grass. I'm just about to order some more!
The refill grows just as well as the ready-boxed type and is greener because you can reuse the old box again and again. It's cheaper too.
I put one bag of these seeds into a 150g tray and 10 days later the grass is so dense it is quite difficult to find space for water! This is a better result than any of the other grass sold by Zooplus - and I've been pleased with all of them. Wonderful value for money - and Sylvie is munching away happily!
