If you are worried that your pots will fall apart, try using a little tape.
To avoid dampening the newspaper, water the plant with a spray-bottle.
For a different look try using paper from magazines or heavier scrap-booking paper.
I bought one of these for myself and one for a friend. I have already started about 20 seeds with it. It workds great! My only word of caution is that once the pots are wet and full of soil they are a bit delicate. I had cat step on one and nearly destroy it.
But all in all, I love this tool. I like that i is good for the seedlings, good for the environment, inexpensive, and a great way to use my newsprint junk mail. This tool is a winner!
