At Sprout we wanted to face the whole throw-away culture, starting with the most basic of our everyday utencils: What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away you could plant them and have them grow into something delicious, beautiful, and fun?
We asked ourselves this question, gave it a shot and Sprout was born.
We’re really happy to present the world’s first pencil that grows!

Sunflower is both grown for decorative purposes and for its delicious kernels. It origins in South America but is grown almost worldwide, for instance in the southern part of Europe where you can
Our Pencils are to sprout Sunflowers!
watch fields of yellow sunflowers turning their heads against the sun.
The plant thrives in a hot and sunny environment and does not tolerate frost. It can be sown indoor in the spring, but will grow best outside. At 15-25 degrees, it takes 7-14 days for the seed to germinate.
In the Sprout Pencil you will find a blend of sunflower seeds called Autumn Beauty. The seeds can grow into 1,5 m tall plants with flowers in beautiful autumn colors. Sunflower is annual, meaning that it will grow from seed to flower in one summer – app. 3-4 months for a full life cycle.
The sunflower is an adorable ornamental plant. Cut it early in the morning for long lasting bouquets or enjoy it in the garden. When it has finished to bloom carefully remove the flower head and leave it to dry. Then you can either harvest your own seeds for growing more sunflowers next year or you can feed the seeds to the wild birds.
Sunflower seeds are lovely to eat, but they can also be used for oil. The cold pressed oil is used for cooking and the warm pressed oil can be part of soaps and lacquers
