Here’s how to get started:

1. Gather the supplies.

Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You will need:

  • Plantable seed paper from 21 Fools
  • A pot or planting area in your garden
  • Quality potting soil
  • Watering can or spray bottle
  • Sunlight or a grow light (if indoors)

Having these items ready will ensure a smooth and enjoyable planting experience.

2. Prepare the seed paper.

Take your plantable seed paper and cut it into small pieces. This increases the surface area and allows more seeds to make contact with the soil, enhancing the chances of successful germination. If you’re planting a larger piece, ensure it fits comfortably in your chosen pot or planting area. Our seed papers come in various sizes and shapes, so you can select the one that best suits your needs.

3. Add water.

Next, you’ll want to soak the pieces of seed paper in water for about 10-15 minutes. This softens the paper and activates the seeds, making them ready for planting. Use a shallow dish or bowl and ensure the paper is fully submerged. As the paper absorbs water, it will start to break down, which is a good sign that it’s ready to be planted.

4. Plant the paper.

Once the seed paper is adequately soaked, it’s time to plant it. Fill your pot or garden area with a layer of potting soil. Place the wet seed paper pieces on top of the soil, ensuring they are spread out evenly. Gently press the paper into the soil, making sure it’s in good contact but not buried too deep. A light covering of soil, about 1/8 inch, should be enough to hold the paper in place without suffocating the seeds.

5. Place in the sun.

Seed paper needs sunlight to germinate, so find a sunny spot for your pot or planting area. Most seeds require at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight each day. If you’re planting indoors and natural light is insufficient, consider using a grow light to provide the necessary illumination. The right amount of light is crucial for the seeds to sprout and thrive.

6. Watch it grow! After a few days…

With the seed paper planted and positioned in the sun, it’s time to water it regularly. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Over the next few days, you should start to see tiny sprouts emerging from the soil. Continue to care for your seedlings by providing consistent water and sunlight. Depending on the type of seeds embedded in the paper, you could see flowers, herbs, or vegetables beginning to grow in just a few days to a couple of weeks.
