Lil Critter Grass Kit
3 lightweight plastic containers for planting/growing along with 3 solid bases to capture water (this is basically a house plant after all), 2 pounds of Wheat Grass Seed, a 3 month supply (13 pre-cut pieces) of Baby Blanket planting medium, Printed Instructions. Keep your Guinea Pigs, Gerbils, Hamsters, etc. supplied with fresh, nutritious, delicious, tender Grass for months. We added this kit in honor of Lori's brother Dan, who has long fed Wheat Grass to his much beloved Guinea Pigs - Susie and Sara. We include extra planting containers (they are about 4x4 inches by the way) in case any break. Our Wheat comes from a source which is certified organic.

My guinea pigs inspired me to try sprouting, since I buy so many fresh veggies for them, I thought about growing my own.
They fight over the wheatgrass, pry it from the growing container and even eat the tender roots. I enjoy growing my own wheatgrass and the piggies love it!
The small trays are great for growing grass for small pets. Here's a way to use wheatgrass that I'm sure few have thought of. If this kit still comes with clear containers it's wonderful for showing young children how roots (and plants) grow. Unlike soil, you can pick up baby blanket to show the growing roots, or just pick up the clear containers and look underneath them.
Wheatgrass grows fast and my preschool students were amazed to come to school and see how much bigger the grass had grown. When the pre-cut blanket and seeds are eventually gone I'll buy B.B. in bulk and order another pound of W.G. seed.
