  1. How often do you put water in the bags? Is it every day? Or do you just observe what happens from the first day? Thanks!

    1. When the paper towel starts to dry out, the kids pour enough water to wet the towel. Sometimes there’s a bit in the bottom that the towel can soak up (1/4-1/2″). If you have more than 1/2″ water in the bottom of the baggie, you have too much water. Hope that helps.
