1. Fill the lower capsule of the Bios Urn with ash (any amount, regardless of how little can be used.) The Bios Urn can be filled by a crematorium, or by the individual user. Thanks to its double capsule design, the Bios Urn locks into place, so that a crematorium can give the ash back to you ready to plant. Once the ashes have been transferred to the lower capsule, close the lower capsule with the top capsule by sealing it into place (place the top capsule on top, and then twist it slightly to the side). TIP: If you only use a portion of the ash, be sure to fill the remainder of the Bios Urn with soil from the surrounding area as well so as not to leave a gap present.
2. Choose the location or planting spot for your Bios Urn. If you need assistance with this, please contact us here or check out our recommended places to plant.
3. Plant your Bios Urn! Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the Bios Urn. Generally around 15-16 inches (380-410 mm) is a good depth, with a width of 10-12 inches (260-310 mm). Plant the Bios Urn inside, leaving the soil surface a couple of fingers above the top of the urn. TIP: water the entire hole before you plant the Bios Urn into it, as this will help begin the process of biodegradation.
4. Remove the seal from the top capsule, unpack the growth medium and place it in the top capsule. Place the seedling gently combining its soil with the growth medium and adding on top – if the case – additional soil from the site where you are planting the Bios Urn. TIP: In case the seedling and the soil fit perfectly in the top capsule, you can mix and add on top growth medium and soil of the site (point 5).
5. Cover the Bios Urn with soil from the surrounding area, and thoroughly water the spot you have planted it. None of the Bios Urn should be exposed, it should all be covered by soil.
Simply plant your urn where you want your tree to grow and take care of it. Always plant all of the urn, which is 100% biodegradable and won’t damage the soil. You can plant your Bios Urn using a tube-stock, seedling or shrub, as you prefer. We generally recommend planting during the appropriate season according to your tree. If you have questions about when to plant your Bios Urn according to your location, message us, and we will assist you with this process.
Remember that Bios Urn can be saved for as much time as you want because it doesn’t have an expiration date. Thanks to the materials used to create the Bios Urn, you can keep the urn indefinitely. To favour its preservation, we recommend storing the urn in a dry place away from extreme heat, or humidity.
