Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

At first, I bought large sets of seed starters thinking it was cheaper per cell. Now, I realize that bigger cells and a tall dome allow for the plants to grow stronger before transplanting. Also, different seeds need different care, so several smaller seed starters is better. This is a good side and a nice sturdy plastic that will last long enough to justify the higher cost.
I'm using it for tomatoes, basil and other seeds that will need to stay indoors until it get warmer.

    Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

    I am very impressed with this seed starting setup. It is so much better than ones I used last year from a local home and garden shop. This is a nice study setup with heavy-duty trays and cover. I expect it to last for many years so it's well worth the money spent.

      Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

      The shells are an excellent size for starting plants. With the 3 1/2" size I don't have to repot the plants before transplanting outside. Love the water reservoir that is built in for continuous moisture but not too much.
      I only wish it had a few more cells.

        Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

        The wicking concept was appealing but the shallow water reservoir and short absorbing mat will cause me to make modificatons. I intend to use this to start seedlings and grow to transplant size. The tall dome should allow that.

        The dome arrived smashaed and I will repair but better packaging would have prevented that. I know I could return it but consider that a waste of everybodies time when I can fix it with some transparent tape.

            Comments about Deep Root Seedstarting System:

            if the water level in the base comes up over the platform and wicking mat, the cells can get oversaturated and develop mold. I start over 70 varieties of tomatoes and two to three seeds per cell of each. Depth of cell means I can reduce my need to transplant seedlings by half.

            Cover was slightly scratched on each one ordered and was surprising considering the expense. We have tried and it works very well and was easy to set up. We would have purchased 2 more but could not afford at this price.

            These starter kits are great. Better than anything I have ever used. You do not have to worry about watering. I have 4 of them. They are really heavy duty construction. You have vents at the top to control heat. They are awesome.

            I actually bought this kit a year ago and wanted to try it out before I did a review. Finally a seed starting kit I can use over and over. The cells are nice deep so the plant roots have enough room to grow. Would be nice if it came with an extra mat.
