Planting your seed paper

Welcome to our guide on how to grow seed paper and transform it into beautiful blossoms! At Little Green Gifts, we believe in the importance of sustainability, and our seed paper embodies that ethos perfectly. While we provide instructions to help maximize your success, it's important to note that various factors, such as climate, environment and care, can influence the outcome. Though we can't guarantee every seed will sprout into a flourishing plant, we encourage you to embrace the process and enjoy the magic of watching nature unfold. Follow these steps with care, and let your green thumb lead the way to a blossoming garden.


Soak in water for 24-48 hours.

Fill a shallow container with room temperature water. Gently place the seed paper into the water, ensuring it's fully submerged. Allow the seed paper to soak for 24 to 48 hours. This time frame allows the seeds to absorb water, kickstarting the germination process.

Step 2

Transfer to a pot with compost, water regularly.

After soaking, prepare a pot with well-draining compost or potting soil. Gently transfer the soaked seed paper onto the surface of the compost. Lightly press the seed paper into the compost to ensure good soil contact. Water the pot regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can continue to leave the seed paper in water until you notice the seeds starting to sprout, and then transfer them to the compost.

Step 3

Keep in a warm place (very important!) with natural light.

Place the pot in a warm location with access to natural light, such as a sunny windowsill or greenhouse. Ensure the temperature remains consistently warm, as this is crucial for seed germination. Aim for a temperature range of 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 24 degrees Celsius). Provide adequate ventilation to prevent mold growth, especially in humid conditions. Monitor the moisture levels in the soil, making sure it never dries out completely. However, be cautious not to overwater, as this can lead to rot or fungal issues.

Step 4

Enjoy your blooms!

As the seeds germinate and grow, continue to provide care by watering as needed and ensuring they receive sufficient light. Over time, the seedlings will develop into mature plants and eventually bloom, providing a beautiful display of flowers. Enjoy the fruits of your labor and the beauty of nature's cycle from seed to plant to bloom!
