A friend discovered I didn't know what a chia pet is, so she got me one. Wish me luck!

Day 4

This is a day after filling the planter with water, after letting the seeds dry out and stick to the planter for two days.

You can see the seeds starting to sprout.

The "bonus seed goop" that I put in a pot didn't have to go through the drying process, and is already sprouting up.

The seeds on the planter are visibly sprouting.

The seeds in the pot are preparing to take over the world.

Day 11

The planter has mostly sprouted, except for some patches were seeds were too tight together.

The sprouts in the pot are going strong.

Day 15

The planter is a little more sprouted, but unevenly so. The sprouts on the window-facing side are less leggy than the ones on the inside.

The seeds in the pot are starting to make their first set of "true" leaves.
