the seeds and seed pads are tailored specifically to your ingarden device and have undergone thorough testing phases. the seeds we use are 100% organic, vegan, non-gmo, and lab-tested. additionally, the seeds are specifically cultivated to grow within about a week. the seed pad that encapsulates the seeds is designed to optimally transpire the water to the seeds from below and protect them from environmental hazards from above to ensure a high-quality product. as we cannot guarantee optimal growth and equal quality with third-party seeds used with your ingarden, we are currently not offering the option to grow other seeds with ingarden seed pads.
