What is the Flame To Flora Collection?
The Flame to Flora collection is an introduction to a zero waste journey. A homemade coconut and soy wax candle accompanied by a Flame to Flora seed kit. This kit allows you to economically recycle your used candle jar by transforming it into a home for a new plant to grow.
175ml homemade coconut & soy candle in a reusable jar
Plant Seeds- Choose between Flower, Herb or Polka Dot plant seeds
Instant Soil Pellets
Reusable Muslin Bag
TIP: You can reuse your Flame to Flora muslin bags as scent bags for your drawers or even use it to store your jewellery.
How Does It Work?
Step 1: Burn and enjoy up to 35 hours of blissful scent. It's never easy to say goodbye. But it's time to stop burning your candle when there is around 1 - 1.5cm of wax left on the bottom of the jar, otherwise it may get too hot and become a fire hazard.
Step 2: Remove excess wax from jar. We've got an easy trick for this one. Pop the jar into the freezer for a few hours or until the wax is frozen. When this is done, you'll find the wax will have loosened from the edges of the jar. Then just use a fork or butterknife to remove the wax block (you may need to carefully crack it first to get it out). If there is remaining residue, simply rinse the jar with soap and warm water.
Step 3: Expand soil pellets. It's time to use the soil pellets from your FLAME TO FLORA seed kit. Remove the protective netting on each pellet by carefully pinching the edges and unravelling the thin and transparent outer layer. Pop the pellets into the jar and fill up 3/4 of the jar with warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes as the soil expands, then stir and even out. Add more water as required so that the soil is moist but not soaked. Just like that - you're ready to plant.
Step 4: Plant the seeds.
Open your FLAME TO FLORA seed packet and press the seeds into the surface of the soil, spread evenly apart. Be sure to refer to the sowing instructions on the back of the packet for a guide on how deep to sow the seeds, as this may vary depending on the seasonal seed. You don't need to use up the whole seed packet, spread them out evenly to give each seed some space to grow. If you plant too many, weed out to the strongest 2 or 3 seedlings.
Step 5: Water and grow.
Follow the care instructions on the back of your FLAME TO FLORA seed packet. Pop it on your windowsill or in a sunny spot, and watch as your little seedlings sprout. Make sure to water as per your seed instructions, being careful not to over or under water. Harvest herbs regularly or for flowers, transplant to a bigger pot once the seedlings outgrow the jar; then start fresh with a new plant and continue your zero waste journey.
