Our wedding day is near, so near that we are a bit frazzled with the details we have yet to finish. One of which is finalizing the giveaways we will hand out to our guests. Since last year, I’ve had a love affair with plants, or planties as I would lovingly refer to it. It all started with a succulent I bought last Mother’s Day and my affair lasted up to this day.
I wanted to include this love for plants in our special day because that is a unique trait of mine that E supports (so much that he buys me planties here and there). I don’t want to giveaway the usual stuff as well. I was also inspired by pinterest pins which showed succulents as wedding favors set up in a desk with the words “Let Love Grow.”
We have already a supplier for the succulents but I felt like for the cost there must be an alternative choice available in the market. Lo and behold the MNL Grow Kits. Before fully investing on 50 or more kits, I wanted to do a dry run first. I have the whole month of July to grow plants and see if the MNL Grow Kits are better than succulents as give away.
After 3 days of waiting the MNL Grow Kits arrived. I have chosen Basil, Sunflower, and Pepper as my trial kits.
The boxes were easy to handle and looked good already. In terms of personalizing it, we might just have to add a tie and a card saying thank you for our coming and let love grow in their houses with kits.
Unboxing the Kits
Inside each kit was the complete set anybody would need to grow their own plant sans the water spray, plastic cover, and rubber band.
What you see first when you open the box. The warranty:
The instruction guide, seeds, and fertilizer.
Basically with the kit you will have:
- Warranty Letter
- Planting Guide
- Chosen Seeds
- Plant Marker
- Coco Husk
Planting The Seeds
I carefully followed the instructions detailed in the kits and I labeled each one. I will check on it every day to see if there has been any sprouts shooting up. I will do another post to document the whole process of growing the plants.
So far, I am honestly leaning towards the MNL Grow Kits vs. the succulents. Although succulents are nicer to the eye, it is not that easy to take home and you won’t actually see it grow since it is already planted for you. Our whole concept of let love grow fits perfectly with the kits.
What I like so far with the kits are:
- Easy to handle
- Good packaging
- Carefully laid out instructions
- Complete planting set
- Coco Husk – which makes it easier to transfer the plants if needed and the roots grow out vs. ordinary pots
Cons so far:
- No readily available plastic and rubber band needed for germination
Overall so far I give the MNL Grow Kits a rating of 4 out of 5.
