- A sustainable pot for planting (usually made from recycled plastic)
- Some good potting soil
- MOMEN paper label
- A sunny corner
Prepare your Pot
Fill your pot 2/3 full with potting soil. 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.
Plant the paper
Take your MOMEN paper label and cover it with soil in the prepared pot. It’s okay if the paper overlaps. Spread a 1/8-inch layer of soil over the MOMEN paper label pieces and tamp down gently on top.
Water during germination
After planting the MOMEN paper label 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.
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.
