The dark green capsule is made from corn starch and is 100% biodegradable. The lead of the pencil is lead-free and made from a mixture of clay and graphite.

Your logo or your message is engraved in the pencil by laser and the packaging can also be individually printed with your message and your commitment to ecological sustainability.

As soon as your customers and their families know that your Sprout graphite pencil is turning into a plant, it is sure to put a smile on their faces. The transformation of the Sprout graphite pencil into flowers, herbs or vegetables is a clear message and a smart way to make sustainability visible to others.

Key features


Sprout graphite pencils are made from PETC / FSC certified wood. These global certification programs confirm that the wood used comes from fully sustainable forests. In other words, a new one is planted for every felled tree needed to make the graphite pencils.



With popular herb and flower seeds such as basil, sage and sunflower - each pack of pens is topped with a biodegradable seed pod. All seeds are GMO-free and are selected because they are easy to grow - even if you don't have a green thumb!



Each part of the Sprout graphite pencil is non-toxic and does not contain lead. The graphite pencils are also approved according to the European safety approval EN-71. So if it happens that the pens are eaten by a child or pet, there is no need to worry as they are completely harmless.

Planting instructions

Use a saucepan with a drainage hole in the bottom. Place this on a saucer and fill it with suitable potting soil. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. Insert the pen at an angle and not too deep. The soil should just cover the seed pod.

Place the pot in natural light, but avoid direct sunlight if possible. A temperature of 20 ° C / 68 ° F is ideal. Add water to the saucer regularly. The first shoots should appear after about one and four weeks. 🙂
