Planting & Growing Instructions
Once your candle is burned, place your vessel in an oven set to its lowest temperature or in warm water to melt the remaining wax. Remove and recycle the metal wick tab. Use warm, soapy water to clean out any remaining residue.
Add about ½ cup of water per soil pod to a shallow baking dish. Add your soil pod and allow it to expand for 10-15 minutes. Once the pods have expanded to seven times their height, drain excess water. Remove the wrapper from the soil pods and transfer the soil into your vessel.
Tear your seed paper into small pieces, about 1cm big. Compress the pieces into the soil, but do not cover. Fully saturate the paper with water and place vessel in a sunny spot.
Keep the soil moist, but not too wet. As most of the vessels do not have drainage holes, you'll want to be careful not to overwater. After sprouting, keep the seedlings moist until they are about 6 inches tall. After that, wildflowers prefer minimal care, so simply keep them in a sunny spot and water occasionally.
Nearly all of the flowers in the mix are annuals, which means they will not regrow on their own. However, you can collect the seeds and replant them! We recommend this website for information on collecting and preserving wildflower seeds.
Otherwise, once the flowers have reached the end of their life cycle, you can compost what remains. Then simply wash your vessel and share with us what new use you find for it!
