Every household has plenty of tp tubes. They make great seedling pots, so why not reuse some of them instead of recycling them. :)
- toilet paper tubes
- Cut the TP tube in half. Then make 4 cuts that are approx. 1/2 in., creating 4 flaps of equal size.
- Fold one flap inward, then working clockwise, fold the other flaps down. Tuck the corner of the last flap under the corner of the first flap. (Like when you are closing a cardboard box.)
- Turn them over and gently press them down on a flat surface so make the bottoms flat, so that they will stay upright.
- Turn them over, fill with soil, and plant your seeds. Once the seeds have sprouted and are ready to go into the ground, just plant them with the pot. The cardboard will disintegrate in the soil.
