Here are a few tips on how to use toilet paper rolls to house seedlings:
1. Using the paper toilet roll provided, soil medium, and seeds.
2. Place the seed pots on a tray, plate, or bowl. If the seed pots seem wobbly, you could also use the plastic bag as a terrarium-greenhouse.
3. Fill the paper towel roll with soil (it may have dumped out in transit, moisten the soil, and plant your seeds. Keep planted seed inside the toilet paper roll in a sunny location.
4.Typically, you will have to wait a few weeks before you can remove the plants and embed them into the garden. You may want to acclimate the plants to the garden before putting the pods (or just the plants in the pods) into the ground. To do this, take your tray or seeding bin out to the garden for a few hours each day, this will ease the stress of the plants.
5. Plant the toilet paper seed pods in the garden, cardboard tube and all. If the cardboard is sticking up above the soil's surface, simply tear off any excess. If you don't, it will wick moisture away from the roots. You can also cut off the bottom and just plant the tube of dirt that was sitting in the toilet paper pod. The cardboard will biodegrade and hopefully, the plants will thrive.
