Tissue Seedling Starters

I have my medicine in my purse so I always stuff the doser cup with toilet tissue or facial tissue. It makes these darling little seed starters. I am going to make some of these for this spring, and put a little bit of honey in the bottom of it and then keep them for the spring. I wonder if it will keep the shape or if I should wait until spring actually gets here? After

four hours of being in the doser cup, they hold their shape!

They are so cute. Honey is a homemade antifungal or rooting hormone for plants roots to keep them from getting root rot.

So how does one start seeds in those little cups with cotton in them and honey? Please give me the scoop, would love to start a bunch of seeds using this unique idea, thanks.

I actually put honey in the bottom of the cup, put in the tissue.

Push it down in the cup and then you take out the tissue. The cups are stand alone, at least the way I use them. Then you put your seed into the bottom, nearly of the tissue, and then in the spring you plant the little tissue plugs into the ground.


In order to start a seed indoors, I would put honey, smear honey on the bottom of this cup and keep the tissue wet, and then put a seed in it and then keep the tissue moist but not gathering water in the bottom of the cup!

You can also put honey on the bottom of a cut plant to keep it from really getting root rot in water, such as roses, etc. At least I have done that before.

Blessings, Robyn
