Thats right! You can grow your very own Pitaya farm straight from our smoothie packs. You might be wondering how that is even possible...? Well, one of the benefits of producing 100% RAW, USDA Organic smoothie packs is that they are actually still 'alive'! Because we don't pasteurize like other superfruit companies, all of our enzymes are still alive and kicking. Not only are these enzymes super healthy, they also enable you to grow your very own Pitaya superfruit right from the comfort of your own backyard.
Each Pitaya smoothie pack contains roughly 300 living seeds and because we didn't pasteurize them, these little guys are just waiting to grow!
Follow along below and learn how to grow your very own Pitaya superfruit cactus!
What you'll need for this step by step process:
- 1 Pitaya Plus Pack
- 1 Seed Starter Kit
- Pots (Amount depends on how many you plant)
- Soil for Pots (Amount will vary)
Leave a single Pitaya Plus pack outside of the freezer until completely thawed.
With a loose grip, hold the pack upright and cut off one of the top corners. Then pour entire pack into a small container.
With a spoon, scoop out as many Pitaya seeds as you'd like and fill in each germination pod. We suggest 10 seeds per pod:)
Once all the pods are full of Pitaya seeds, cover the pods with the humidity dome. The humidity dome holds warm air and moisture to ensure productive growth of the seeds. Having a clear lid also gives the seeds the benefit of sunlight.
Follow the instructions from your seed starter kit on how much and how often to water your pods. Different kits have different requirements:)
After 1-2 weeks you should start seeing your Pitaya growing in each pod.
Once your Pitaya grow big enough, you'll want to move them into bigger pots with new soil.
Follow the instructions on how much and how often to water your Pitaya in the new soil. Again, different brand soils have different requirements:)
After a few more weeks and months... you'll end up with your very own Pitaya farm:)
We hope you liked this fun project. Let us know your thoughts on the story or if you've grown Pitaya before:)
Thank you all for the support and happy gardening!
