One may also ask, are chia seeds the same as a Chia Pet? Q: Are the seeds used to grow Chia Pets the same ones found in trendy recipes? A: They are! But the chia seeds used in the -terra-cotta pets, which made their debut in 1977, shouldn't be eaten—they aren't -approved for consumption. Chia seeds are a good source of fiber, calcium, and omega-3.
Similarly, how long do chia pets last?
10 days!! that's it! I did like it! The plants are just salad sprouts of some kindso they grow and don't last forever, but you can plant more. The chia pet itself is terracotta or something like that.
