Growing Seed Paper

Growing Seed Paper

Seed paper has had seeds embedded in the paper during the manufacturing process. Seeds need to stay damp in order to start growing so it is important to keep seed paper moist, but not too soaked as the seeds will rot.

Keep seed paper protected from frosts & extreme heat. There are many seeds embedded inside the paper & not all are visible. Plant ‘bumpy’ side up for best results.

If multiple plants start to grow, remove all but one plant from the pot when the plants are around 4-5cm tall. Store seed paper out of direct sunlight & extreme temperatures before growing.  

Stated growing times are only approximate and it may take longer for seeds to start growing depending on conditions. If you don't have any growth after 21 days check that the spot is warm enough and that you have been watering regularly. Seeds need to stay damp in order to germinate. 

You can speed up growth by placing the seed paper or pot in DIY mini greenhouse - a recycled plastic container with some holes. A recycled tomato or strawberry container is perfect.
