Additional Information

Exclusive | Easy-Care, Earth-Friendly Seed Starting Kit — 100% Germination Guaranteed!

  • 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.

not as great as APS but many of same benefits

By Ell

from Michigan

Pros

  • durable trays
  • replacement parts available
  • self-watering

Cons

  • rigid cells, tiny holes make removal impossible

Best Uses

    Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

    My first choice for seed starting is, by far, my old APS's. But increasing price, decreasing quality and, now, lack of any replacement parts, led me to try these. After seeing all the comments on the difficulty or impossibility of removing plants, I cut the bottoms out of each cell so they are more like the original APS's.

      when you are ready to plant or transplant the whole in the bottom is too small for your finger. I like the old APS system which they have discontinued.

      I use this for seed starting. I love that it gives my seedlings consistent water and I don't have to water everyday. It's easy to remove the seedlings, I just use a plastic fork. I use these with my 3 tier seed starting grow light from gardeners as well, and they fit perfectly. I'm also thrilled that they are reusable and dishwasher safe!!! Although I haven't washed them yet as it's the first season using them, I'm looking forward to being able to reuse them.

      So worth it! (But read my super secret tip)

      By Tracey the Garden Grandma

      from Kaysville, UT

      Comments about : GrowEase Seed Starter Kit, 12 Cells:

      I am a plant killer. I mean like trays and trays of carnage. Bottom watering flats was a pain (pouring out the extra water) so I'd get lazy and water from the top and they'd die from damping off. OR I'd over water. OR I'd get busy and under water. But this year is different! I have bought at least 7 of these kits. (I also have 8 of the 24 cell version.) I use Gardener's seedling mix in these trays and in the last 3 months I have successfully grown herbs in these and have beautiful plants to show for it in my kitchen. (Also LOVE their self-watering cube planters.) I now have onion and flower growing happily under T5 lights getting ready for planting season. Tomatoes and peppers get started in a week or two. In my pictures you can see that my onions had some mold and algae growth and this is where my super secret tip comes in. I found that when I followed the instructions my humidity dome was perfect at keeping in the heat from my T5 lights and promoting very fast germination however there was just too much moisture in there. I found that besides removing the humidity dome immediately once the plants emerge I had much better results if I only moistened the seedling mix and DID NOT put water in the reservoir until AFTER germination when I removed the humidity dome. This seemed to be the magic answer to fast germination without mold or algae problems. (Note that I just scratched off the surface fo the soil slightly to break up the mold and algae slightly and my plants are fine but it could have been a bigger problem.) I am just over the moon with my results and love the ease of bottom watering now. I will run these trays through the dishwasher when I'm done and have everything I need for years to come. And I can start new herbs whenever the urge strikes me because I always have clean trays ready. I really feel like my investment was worth it!
