If you intend to grow your Chamomile seed paper indoors, it is important that you have a sunny window that the seedlings can thrive in, as Chamomile needs sunlight to grow. The best spot for growing your chamomile seed paper indoors would be in a south or west facing window that gets at least 6 hours of bright sunlight. Chamomile can be planted 6-8 weeks before you plan to transport them outdoors.
How to Plant Your Chamomile Seed Paper Inside
1. Tear up your seed paper into 6 smaller pieces
2. Fill your pot with rich, well draining soil about ⅔ full
3. Place your seed paper pieces on top of the soil. Try to spread them out. This will help prevent the Chamomile from crowding each other during growth.
