Wait until the baby plants are at least 4 inches tall before re-potting them into individual pots. Save money on containers by reusing drinking cups as plant pots.

- 4-5 inch deep plant pots
- Nutritious soil/compost
- Small trowel, and flower labelling stick (or small flat spatula)
- Empty trays to store new pots (I use unwanted stationery trays found in schools)

Happy planting. (:
