How to grow your own tea plant (from a teabag)

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Speaking of tea, here is a random yet genius little idea to re-purpose your used tea bags as seed starters! Supposedly if you place a used teabag in a shallow dish and keep it moist like you would with seed starters, it will sprout in no time. After it grows tiny leaves, you then plant the whole thing in a pot! Brilliant and nifty, isn’t it? I’m going to try it tonight. You?

P.S: Also, use, regrow and repeat and all things pineapple plant.
P.P.S: Plus, how to create your own urban herb garden.

You post the best finds. I didn't even know it's possible to grow a plant out of a tea bag.

does it actually work? wouldn't boiling water have burnt and killed the plant? i'd love if it worked though :)

you are just using this as a seed starter. not actually growing a tea plant. the tea is your planting medium...

Would be good to know if the seed actually sprouts and gets enough growrh for planting out. Perhaps a update?
