Background: Willie gave me the chia pet for Christmas and up until just this week, Hippo has been sitting in his box.
Elliott and I decided we needed a friend in the house, so thus enters Chia Hippo. After 24 hours of soaking, we applied the seeds yesterday. They were slimey and yucky and I washed the remnants that were stuck to my fingers down the disposal. I hope we don't sprout stuff out of the sink.
We will keep you updated on his progress. He should be covered in green in 1-2 weeks.
