1. Tear the paper into small bits. Spread them onto some soil (preferably compost) in your home (outdoors or indoors). Cover them with about 1cm of soil.

2. Water the seeds every day. The soil should be well-drained so that the seeds are moist but not water-logged, as this may cause rotting.

3. Share a photo or video on your own social media with the hashtag #SDPPlantablePaper.

4. Be patient, as the seeds take one to three weeks to grow.
