growing a daisy ecocube

I must confess that Geoffrey bought me this cube of daisy seeds nearly two years ago. I remember because it’s the first time that I noticed that my favourite flower is also known as ‘Marguerite’. A few days after learning this, we watched the zombie film “Maggie” and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter, Abigail Breslin, is also named Marguerite. I thought it was a strange coincidence.

Getting back to the cube, I never could bring myself to open it due to a few reasons. One is that I can’t grow anything that isn’t a succulent. Two, the packaging itself was too darn cute. Every time I was about to open it I found myself putting it right back down next to my other plants. I kept telling myself “next month.” 

That month never came. Until recently, that is. Nearly two years later, I’m getting rid of things we no longer need. This includes furniture, baby items, and throwing out dying plants. I knew that it was now or never with growing this daisy cube. 

The instructions of the ecocube are as follows:

1. Open and pull back sticker.

2. Carefully pour 30 ml of water into the cube.

3. Keep the ecocube at a bright, warm place.

4. After 7-14 days, the daisy will start growing.

5. After another 10 weeks the daisy will start blooming.

6. After about 12 months you can bury the entire cube in a pot.

7. The ecocube slowly decomposes and turns into a valuable fertilizer for the plant.

Right now I’m probably on week 3. The seeds have begun growing but are nowhere near blooming. I’m hoping that they will. I really love the idea of an ecocube.

Do you have experiences with anything similar to this?

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
