Comments about : Deep Root Seedstarting System, Black:

I used it to start herb and tomato seeds. Seedlings grew faster than in the trays with smaller bins, and they are ready for repotting well before the seedlings in the smaller trays.

One problem: the covers cracked when I lifted them from the short sides.

    Comments about : Deep Root Seedstarting System, Black:

    I planted tomato seeds and they germinated in 3 days. The plants are growing and very healthy. I would recommend buying these units. Unfortunately, they went out of stock early. I used the other seed starting kits from Gardner's Supply but the seeds do not germinate like in the deep root system. They are good systems just don't germinate as fast as the deep rooted systems.

          This year I am trying this unit to start my peppers. With a heat map the jalepeno peppers are already sprouting and my hope is that I don't have to repot and that they will grow healthy. If that happens, then this is a 5 star unit. The self watering feature is really nice and the unit is very sturdy.

              Nice seed starting set for deep rooted plants. I only gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because with condensation the lid leaks onto the table. I need to put a plastic tray under it.

                  Unlike most seed starters, this one comes with a wicking mat that brings the water up from the reservoir so that the seed cups are not sitting directly in water. The kit is sturdy, easy to use. The double vents allow incremental adjustments to humidity.

                    I can start tomatoes early indoors and only transplant once into permanent bed. Other seed start trays work well, but I have to transplant into pots before they can go into permanent bed. Healthier plants, less work, cannot complain
