  • Seed starting success starts here!
  • Self-watering; prevents over- and under-watering
  • Dishwasher-safe so it's easy to clean between uses
  • Made from heavy-duty, recycled plastic

You’ll be amazed at how fast and healthy your seedlings grow. We’ve solved the challenges of over- or under-watering with the no-fail self-watering feature. Simply fill the reservoir and plants get the water they need, when they need it. That’s worry-free watering! Forget flimsy, single-use look-alike seed starting kits; our heavy-duty system is reusable, again and again. It includes an extra-sturdy leak-proof reservoir, platform and planting cell tray that are all dishwasher-safe, making them easy to clean and sterilize between uses. And the capillary mat, which delivers moisture as seedlings need it, can be used over and over; simply hand wash between uses. A clear germination cover maintains proper humidity while the seeds are germinating. The support platform that holds the planting cells doubles as a seedling ejector. All at an unbeatable price! We recommend using our Organic Seed Starting Mix, sold separately.

    Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

    I have loved every product I've bought from GS, except this one. It's awful. I wanted to love it, as I had just used my old self-watering styrofoam cells for the last time. The old system was flimsy, but the styrofoam cells each had a large hole in the bottom of them for ejecting the seedlings without disturbing the roots. Everything came out nice and clean with little stress to young plants. With these, the hole is way too small and the platform that is supposed to double as a seedling ejector does not work. It just pokes up through your seedlings' roots without popping out the plant. So, you have to dig, with a butter knife, your finger, whatever and "hook" the plant up and out. The roots get torn, most of the soil they've been growing in gets left behind, and the plants sometimes do not recover from the stress. Not to mention digging the plants out that way makes a huge mess in your potting space. These have been used for the first and last time. It pains me ever to throw away anything made of plastic, but I cannot use these. I will need to look for another solution for starting this year's fall seedlings because it looks like GS only sells this design now. It's awful.

    Seeds start well, but hard to get plants out of cells

    By vtdog

    from Manchester NH

    Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

    This is my first year using this system. I have the "old" styrofoam system (some are pushing 30 years!) and would have bought more, but they are not available. This version seems to start seeds well and germination was good throughout all types and sizes of seed. The big problem I noted is the same as many others: It is very difficult to extract plants from the cells. My fat fingers are too large to push through the small hole in the bottom. I used a tongue depressor around the perimeter of each cell and then used it as a lever to get the soil block out. It works ok, but some of the time the seed block fell apart.

    All in all I would rate this a "B"

    So much easier to use!

    • Always the right amount of water

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

        These really make it easy to hit the fine line between over and under watering. A wee bit complicated to set up, but once done all you have to do is check the water in the bottom tray and add as needed.

        No more worries about too much or too little water!

                all seeding of any plant types; the cells are nice and deep; wicking mats do well with keeping water in the cell packs; I also like the ease of cleaning and reusing, including being dishwasher safe !

                Great seedtray

                Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

                I like these sturdy seed trays and the easy watering with the wicking fabric. I like that I can pop them in the dishwasher after using them (the trays, not the fabric) and clean them. I use the handle of a wooden spoon to push the seedling out of the tray when it is time to transplant them.

                    I grew seeds for the first time in my house this year under grow lights and this took the guesswork out of everything. The plants are always moist and are very healthy.
