I started collecting seeds this year. When I started, I was using paper plates and paper towels. I found that the seeds, especially petunias and hibiscus would roll right off the towels if I bumped them or tried to pick them up. One morning while making coffee, I discovered a great little tool. Now, my workbench is covered with 4 cup filters with all kinds of seeds drying. The coffee filters seem to wick the moisture away faster since the edges are off the surface of the table.
Just thought I'd share.
