Japanese Paper Pot Transplanting...amazingly quick way to transplant

Stumbled upon this video recently…quicker, environment friendly-no plastic.  See both videos.

Quite interesting.

I believe the machine is overkill, but even if we manage to have the paper ribbon + cups, the ribbon can be manually transplanted pretty fast.

On a separate note, I had something similar in mind for small seeded plants like onion and carrot. I was thinking of having the seeds glued to a newspaper ribbon so that they get spaced appropriately and then planting the ribbon in the soil.

Growing saplings in paper pots and transplanting them into the beds is a very easy and convenient way.

There is another method of making paper discussed in the following links
