Toilet Paper tubes as Jiffy Pots

So I saw this picture on pinterest the other day showing  toilet paper tubes as seed starting cups. I thought that was a pretty genius idea, so I'm trying it for myself. I'll probably have to still buy some Jiffy Pots, but if I can save myself a few bucks by saving toilet paper/paper towel tubes, why not?

The little cups were really easy to make. Just cut a toilet paper tube in half, cut four slits an inch or so up the sides and fold them in! Here is a picture for those of you who are so inclined:
