The only pencil that grows into a christmas tree! From a tree to a pencil and back to a Christmas Spruce tree.
When it's too short to use, plant your pencil to grow your spruce tree
This high-quality and sustainably harvested cedar pencil have a clever water-activated seed capsule in the tip.
So when you've finally shaved your writing instrument down to an unusable length, simply flip that pencil round and stick it in the ground.
With a little love and tenderness (water and sunlight) your scrumptious Christmas tree will rise from the soil like a photosynthetic phoenix and the remaining pencil acts as a helpful labelled planting marker.
The seed capsule tip will not work as an eraser, though you're welcome to try!
If you are in the habit of chewing on the end of your pencil the sprout will probably activate and dissolve in your mouth. We think this is a great tool to break yourself of that habit.
On a lighter note, the sprout is entirely non-toxic!
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now” Chinese proverb
Follow Sprout planting guidelines. It can easily germinate and grow in a window sill. You can plant Spruce in sun, shade or partial shade and it grows justthe same. It is tolerant of poor soil, but also grows in rich soil
The tree grows slowly in the beginning, only about 5-10 cm the first year. Spruce can become very tall - up to 40 meters high.
What is the Latin botanical name of Spruce? Picea abies ( just so you sound like a clever clogs )
Seed capsule contains three seeds to maximise the chance of successful sprouting.
The pencils even smell great too.
