- Punch a hole of 5 to 10 mm with a thin pen or pencil in each Spongepot.
- Place a seed in each Spongepot. Seeds can be planted in any way you cannot go wrong. The plant will naturally find its way up.

For step 5, you can use a propagator or cutting container with, for example, perlite on the bottom. You can fill the propagator with the water you have left from step 2. If you do not have a propagator, make sure that you place the Spongepot in a small, humid room. Use a small transparent bowl and cover it with cling film. Check the Spongepots daily to ensure they are still humid and water them if necessary.
Usually the seeds germinate within a week. After the cuttings appear, the Spongepots can be placed in the following (organic) medium such as a pot with soil.
