This Growing Paper collection is handmade paper cards with a twist. Each card is made using recycled paper collected from local schools in South Africa. The paper is then embedded with seeds that will grow into flowers or herbs once you have planted your used greeting cards or gift tags.
As with any seed, care needs to be taken while the seed germinate, in other words the plants
need to be kept moist and in a warm place where direct sun exposure is available for half the day.
It is always a good idea to plant your paper in a small pot/pots for the germination period.
How to Plant:
Prepare some weed free soil in a pot. moisten the paper as well as the soil.
place the paper a few millimeters under the soil (or just spirnkle some loose soil over the paper.)
Water and keep moist during germination ( but don't drown the seeds)"Watch your little plants
grow from paper!
To ensure that the paper stays moist during germination, you can prepare the soil and paper in a
glass jar and keep the lid on so as to keep the moisture in.
