How to Grow Oat Grass for Your Kitties 😽😽

For indoor cats, nibbling on grass is excellent for digestion, and brings a little of the outside in. Buying cat grass kits can be expensive, but this is a great way to do it often for mere pennies.

Use everyday potting soil and place into pot or container of your choice. This time I used a container specific to growing cat grass, but I use various pots of all shapes and sizes.

Don't fill the container to the top, leave about half an inch to an inch of room.

Next you'll sprinkle your seeds on the soil. You can use oat grass or wheatgrass. These grass types will grow the quickest, and produce the best results.

Sprinkle the Oatgrass seeds evenly over the top of the soil, no need to space them at all just try not to have them piled on top of one another. You definitely want a nice layer of seeds.

Turn your kitchen tap on to a light trickle and evenly trickle water over the top of the seeds and soil gently soaking it.

Now sprinkle a light layer of soil over top of the seeds. Just enough soil to completely cover the seeds.

Once the seeds are completely covered it will look like this. Once more trickle water over the top of the soil, to soak it.

It will take approximately 5 to 6 days before the grass seed starts to sprout. Keep it out of direct sunlight. I usually keep mine on top of the fridge while its germinating.


Every day you will need to lightly trickle water on top of the soil to keep the seeds moist while its germinating.

Here's the final result! Just like regular grass, as long as you water it and trim it, it will keep growing. You can make each pot last approximately 2 1/2 to 3 weeks.
