Directions for Use:
- Wet the all natural hemp-mat with heavy mist or a quick dip in a water bath. Let excess water drain. Sprinkle seeds evenly and to the desired density, then mist until seeds are soaked. (The mat can support tightly packed seedlings and hold 100x its own weight in water)
- Cover the seeds with another tray for 48-72 hours. Mist once per day.
- Remove the lid and place under a light source. Keep mat wet until harvest time. 1-2 waters per day.
- The hemp performs best when not over watered. The amount of water will vary depending on the system used. The felt should be kept moist, not saturated. Water level should not be higher than the top of the medium. If water pools in the felt, reduce flow.
- When ready, harvest crop with scissor and enjoy!
