“It’s not only fun, but it’s also teaching kids about gardening and plants, and things like that,” said Randy Seagraves with Texas A&M AgriLife.

Once you put together the Monster Plant, it should begin growing green hair in three to four days.

Children and their parents are being encouraged to share pictures of their monster plants.

Pictures can be emailed to with the city, state, and child’s first name. They can also be shared online and include #JMGkids and #MonsterPlant.

“We actually have a special contest we’ll be posting on our website as well, so if kids want to submit a gallery, they’ll have a chance to win a garden book as well,” said Seagraves.
