How to plant your seed paper
Make sure you keep hold of this paper and give your vessel a new life.
We recommend planting within the first year of receiving your seed paper product and do not plant it in nature.
For optimal results, only plant mid to late spring or early summer—winter is not the best time for plants growth.
Once you have finished burning your candle, simply follow the instructions below to use the seeded paper and repurpose your candle vessel as a plant pot.
STEP 1—PREPARE YOUR POT & PLANT THE PAPER
After candle is fully used, clean the container. Put some stones at the base of the plan pot to increase drainage. Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil and add more if necessary. Dampen your seeded paper in water until soft. Take your seeded paper, cut in small pieces and cover with a thin layer of soil in the prepared pot with the paper. Spread a 1/8 inch layer of soil over the seed paper and tamp down gently on top.
STEP 2—CARE DURING GERMINATION
The seeds in the seeded paper require a little bit of care through- out the germination period. After planting the paper in your pot,
give it a good soak. You want the paper and the soil to be nicely damp but not swimming in water. During the first 10 days, keep the paper moist at all times. The water is necessary for germination.
STEP 3—ENJOY A PLANT OF CYPRUS
With bees in mind
Germination time is 1-3 weeks. Once your small plants have grown, keep your pot protected from extreme tempera- tures, and strong sunlight. Continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once the seedlings are well established you can then transfer them in a bigger pot.
