• Wikipedia:Chia Pets are grown by applying moistened seeds of chia (Salvia hispanica), the aromatic annual from whose common name the Chia Pet gets its name, to the clay, grooved figurine body. After three to five days consisting of filling and refilling the Chia Pet with water as well as discarding water that has accumulated in the provided drip tray, the seeds sprout, having formed a gelatinous coat that adheres to the Chia Pet's body. At this point, little effort is required to maintain the Chia Pet, whose plant counterpart grows into a verdurous covering. Enough S. hispanica seeds are provided with the Chia Pet for three plantings. Additional seeds can be purchased for use with the Chia vessel, which is reclaimable. Several Chia Pet animals are currently available, including a turtle, pig, puppy, kitten, frog, and hippopotamus. Sculpted "Chia Heads" and "Licensed Chia Pets" based on popular cartoon characters like Garfield, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Shrek, and The Simpsons can also be found.
