How does it grow?

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.

2) Write the wish you want to send - You'll need to write down the wish on your wishful plantable card.

3) 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.

4) 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.

5) 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, and watch your wish grow into beautiful flowers!
