How Plantable Paper Works
What is seed paper?
Plantable paper is a handmade paper made from post-consumer and post-industrial paper waste. Plantable paper includes any number of seeds that are still able to germinate after the paper being made and they can sprout once the paper is planted in soil. It’s biodegradable and the paper composts away, making this a unique and fun experience of growing pretty flowers in your garden or house.
HOW TO PLANT SEED PAPER
What you will need:
- Plantable paper
- Sunny corner
1) First begin by filling your pot 2/3 with soil. Tap down the soil, don’t flatten it too much, you can also add more soil if you need to.
2) Place your seed paper onto of the soil and spread another 1/8 inch of soil over the seed paper. Tap the soil down gently ontop.
3) Make sure you give it a good soak, but don’t drown it in water as the paper and soil need to be damp. Water is necessary for germination, so in the first 10 days, make sure you keep your paper and soil moist at all times.
4) Continue to paper and soil moist once the sprout appears, but make sure you don’t overwater it. You can water your pot as needed once sturdy plants appear. You can cut the flowers that start to blossom and place them in a vase to enjoy or keep them in the pot.
