        I use this for seedlings. Keeps small pots nice and moist. Wish it were black or gray instead of white. Would not show the dirt as much.

          I use it as part of a self watering system for seedlings.
          I only have to add water to the system once a week.

            I use it as the wick when setting up plants for self watering. It works great and I typically clean and re-use it, too. The picture on internet/catalog shows a product that is black on one side. I have used the black, and also this white. This white product works well and doesn't seem to shrink like the black does when washing/re-using it.

                  It has made watering a breeze and encourages the seedlings to root deeply.

                    I use it as replacement capillary mat for seed starting kits and once my plants are transplanted into peat pots, I use a humidity rack topped with a capillary mat in a tray to provide even moisture to my new seedlings until they are planted out in the garden. It provides even moisture to the roots without sitting in water.
                    I also use it to line my coir plant hangers.

                    I bought this matting for my seed starting set up. I am disappointed that it is the the black backed matting as shown in the photo. I am afraid that roots will burrow into this matting and create problems come plant-out time.

                    Comments about Capillary Matting, 3 Yards:

                    This came with my two-tier seed starting stand. After uses of one month, I took the seedlings in their pots off of it (to "pot up").
                    There were many roots growing in it.
                    I tried to scrub the general junk off of it with a soft scrub brush, thinking that I could reuse it next year, if I take very good care of it the rest of this season.
                    No way.
                    While I am impressed with the watering ability of this mat, I thought that I could use it more than one season. This is just my assumption. I will order it next Spring, and will be prepared to factor in the cost of my seedlings.
                    I rated it as average as the pros and the cons cancel out each other, basically.

                      I used your self watering trays for years but they finally wore out. So I bought the capillary mating. It works great. I use it under seed starting trays and put the cow pots directly on it

                        I've been growing most of my plants from seeds for several years now and decided to construct my own self-watering seed-starting trays. So far, the capillary matting has worked as I hoped and has relieved me of the chore of frequent watering of my seedlings.
