Planting the seeds
This chapter explains how to plant the seeds that come with Billy-Billy.
It is advisable to start planting with Billy-Billy turned off.
To make it easier to fill the inner pot with the soil and seeds, or to avoid damaging Billy-Billy during this step, it is recommended to remove the inner pot before adding the soil.
Fill the inner pot with the supplied soil without pressing it.
After the pot has been filled with the soil, it needs to be compressed a little. 2 markers have been provided to indicate how deep the soil should be pressed.
The soil needs to be pressed down until the bottom mark is visible.
Once the soil has been pressed, the seeds can be distributed on top of the soil bed.
By filling up the inner pot up to the edge, the seeds will be covered.
Take care when pressing the soil that the top layer is not too dense, so air can still reach the seeds. Do not repeat Step 5-6 if there still is some soil left.
By inserting the inner pot back in Billy-Billy, the status of the plant can now be monitored. You may now switch Billy-Billy on if you haven’t done so already.
Add some water to the inner pot. Please wait for a while to allow Billy-Billy to start measuring the humidity in the soil.
