About

Share the fun of playing with nature with your family and friends and send them a Growing Greeting.

We designed greeting cards that grow "vegetable confetti". Your loved ones will see microgreens grow in front of their eyes and in only a week they can use them in their cooking recipes. 

It is always amusing to see a seed turn into a plant, but even more so if it turns into a monster, a beard or an owl! 

At Clorofille we see plants as more than decorative, but essential to a happy and healthy life, and that’s why you can eat the microgreens right out of your card! We teamed up with Tiny Gardens to bring you the perfect microgreens experience. It takes only a week to have tasty microgreens, just watering each day.

Microgreens are a great way to spice up your dishes. They might be micro but they are actually full of nutrients! Researchers have discovered that microgreens like red cabbage contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts. The flavour of microgreens is also more intense, so a little bit of these card-grown greens can go a long way to enhance a meal for a loved one.

We have designed 4 different cards that can appeal to anyone, ranging from normal food-loving human beings to hipsters and even kids :)

Grow Your Own Beard!

Are you old enough to grow a beard? How about a veggie one with red cabbage microgreens?

Grow Your Monster!

Should your home-grown monster have legs, tentacles or antennas? You can cut out the pieces and add it to the cards to have your personalised monster. 

Choose between:

  • Yellow Monster with Green Rucola Microgreeens.
  • Green Monster with Red Mizuna Microgreens

Grow Your Owl!

Grow microgreens as feathers of this cute bird. The owl comes with chia sprouts.

How does it work

In every card you´ll find  a package of seeds and a hemp mat  where you can saw your seeds.

  • build your monster,
  • water it 
  • saw the seeds,
  • the next day water it again just enough so you can feel with your finger that the hemp mat is wet
  • keep watering for 7 to 10 days until you get your microgreens!

About us

Clorofille is a green startup coming out of the Let It Grow accelerator in Amsterdam. We make products which let you play with nature!

Our passion is to show that plants are more than just decoration: they're sources of entertainment and can connect us to a lifestyle full of whole green experiences.

We produce experimental urban farming kits and green greeting cards - and we love every leaf that grows from them.

We believe nature can bloom everywhere also in the city!

Tiny Gardens wishes to spread the opportunity and joy of cultivating and eating your own sprouts, thus inspiring a healthy and green lifestyle. We also help to create a more inclusive labor market by being a workplace with room for diversity.

Risks and challenges

We have working prototypes, we printed the cards and we have tested them. However, we cut each one of them by hand and that´s not ideal, so we decided to start a kickstarter campaign to be able to produce the matrix that will automatically cut the paper.
