- Soak the Seed Paper:
Before planting, soak the seed paper in water for a few hours or overnight. This helps soften the paper and activates the seeds.
- Prepare the Planting Area:
Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil for planting your seed paper. Ensure that the area is free from weeds and debris.
- Planting Depth:
Plant the seed paper at a depth of about 1/8 to 1/4 inch in the soil. Gently press the paper into the soil to ensure good seed-to-soil contact.
Water the planted area thoroughly after planting. Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, until the seeds germinate and establish.
- Germination Period:
Be patient during the germination period, as it may vary depending on the seed mix. Typically, germination can take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks.
- Thinning (if necessary):
Once the seedlings have sprouted and developed a few true leaves, thin them to allow proper spacing for healthy growth. Follow the recommended spacing for the specific plants in the seed paper.
- Care and Maintenance:
Continue to water the seedlings regularly, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist. Gradually reduce watering as the plants mature. Fertilize as needed based on the specific requirements of the plants in the seed paper.
Depending on the seed mix, you can expect flowers or herbs to bloom in the designated time frame. Harvest flowers as they bloom, and herbs when they reach the desired size for culinary use.
Enjoy and Share:
Once your seed paper has blossomed, enjoy the beauty of the flowers or harvest the herbs for culinary delights. Share the joy by gifting seed paper to loved ones.
