$1.95 $3.90
Chia is the common name for Salvia hispanica, which is a plant from the mint family. This plant has edible chia seeds. And aside from being used for sprouting a Chia Pet, they’re also highly nutritious. Chia seeds can also be grown in pots as plants or eaten in raw form as they are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

Growing Instructions:
Chia seeds are tiny. You don't need to dig a hole to bury them. Lightly ruffle an area of your weed-free garden with a rake or, if you only have a few seeds and are spacing them carefully, simply loosen the earth with your fingers. Sprinkle a few seeds over the soil and rub gently to cover them. Water the seeds daily, and within about a week you can expect to see chia sprouts. When planting chia seeds directly in the garden, I create a carpet of chia and then thin the plants as they grow. Chia seeds can also germinate successfully in pots. If you want to start your chia plants indoors or close to your garden tap, sprinkle the seeds lightly in your pot and water regularly. When the sprouts are about three inches tall, they are ready for transplanting.
