How do I take care of my candle?
Ensure that the entire top layer of wax is melted all the way to the edge of the vessel. If not, tunnelling (a "funnel effect") will take place. On the next burn, trim the wick so that ¼ of an inch is exposed through the wax.
What do I do if the candle starts tunneling?
You may try burning the candle for a longer period of time, around 2-3 hours. If not, you may also wrap the candle with aluminum foil and burn for at least 2-3 hours. To prevent tunneling from the start, read our candle care instructions above.
How do I clean out the wax from the pot?
Freeze the candle using the freezer. You may then scoop out the remaining wax with a spoon after the wax contracts.
How do I remove the metal wick bottom?

There's no hole at the bottom of the pot, do I need to drill one?
It is not necessary as the plants will still be able to grow. However if you want to drill a hole at the bottom, you may do so as well.
How should I store the seed paper while I use the candle?
Store it in room temperature. Ensure that you remove the seed paper before burning the candle and keep it away from the candle to avoid it from catching fire.
How do I use the seed paper?
Tear it up into small pieces and place it just beneath the expanded magic soil (see instructions below on how to expand the magic soil before use). You don't have to use all the seed paper, just a quarter or half of it for one pellet of magic soil will do.
How long does it take for the seeds to sprout?
It will take approximately 2-3 weeks.
What kind of flowers or plants do the seeds consist of?
It will either be wildflower or herbs.
What is magic soil made of?
Magic soil is basically compressed and dehydrated soil held together by mesh netting.
How do I start using the magic soil?
Place one pellet into the empty candle jar. You just have to add approximately 2-3 tablespoons of water for each pellet. Wait for approximately 5-10 minutes and watch as the soil expands. The mesh netting may cover the top of the soil slightly and if that happens, just tuck it away. Thereafter, add the torn pieces of seed paper just beneath the first layer of the soil.
Do I have to water the soil regularly?
As the magic soil is compressed, it will usually be kept moist after the expansion. However, do add water to the tray once in a while whenever the pellets start to turn light brown but be careful not to over-water.
