Seed Paper

If you landed yourself on this page, it most likely means you received one of our little seed paper thank you cards in your package with your Jewelry, so we will say it again - THANK YOU!

How to plant your wildflower seed paper:

the following information is taken from botanicpaperworks.com/learn-more

 

1

Prepare your Pot

Fill your pot 2/3 full with good potting soil. Tamp down the soil and add more if necessary. You want the pot to be firmly full, but not packed. The paper can be planted indoors or outside, so you get to choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting (we don’t recommend planting outside if it’s blizzarding or desert-hot!).

2

Plant the Paper

Take your plantable paper and cover the soil in the prepared pot with the paper. It’s okay if the paper overlaps. Spread a 1/8 inch layer of soil over the plantable paper pieces and tamp down gently on top.

3

Water during Germination

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.

Care after Germination

Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy plants appear, water as needed. The images below are what the pot looks like after planting a greeting card.
