  • Watch: All About Peel Away Pots
  • 2" square pots are just the right size for starting seeds
  • Reusable fabric pots air-prune roots for healthier transplants
  • Self-watering tray keeps soil moist and reduces watering chores
  • Choice of Red or Brown
  • Set of 12 pots with tray

The Peel Away™ Seedling Pot Kit is an innovative, effective and convenient seedstarting system. The pots are made from VELCRO® brand fabric, which air-prunes roots so plants form healthy, dense root systems. This ensures optimal water and nutrient uptake and eliminates spiraling, which results in vigorous, robust plants. The self-watering tray uses a reservoir and a wicking capillary mat to deliver water to plants as they need it, eliminating over- and under-watering and minimizing problems with damping off. When it's time to transplant your seedlings, the peel-away sides make it easy to remove plants without disturbing roots, minimizing transplant shock. Pots are washable, reusable and store flat. The Peel Away Seedling Pot Kit includes twelve 2" square pots plus a self-watering tray.


  • VELCRO® brand fabric, recycled plastic, polypropylene
  • Pots are 2" square x 2" H
  • Reservoir holds 5 cups of water
  • Handwash pots and tray for reuse
  • VELCRO® is a registered trademark of Velcro Industries B.V.
  • Imported

mixed feelings

By asunda

Verified Buyer

I feel mixed about these little pots. Had high hopes for them. But because the fabric inside is a texture, the roots get caught on them and tear when you remove the cube from the pots. I'm thinking of placing a thin piece of cardboard on the bottom next time I use them.
But I do like that they are reusable. I use a soil block press and that's good for small seeds. For larger seeds like squash and cucumbers these were great.

    • Seed starting

    I used the 2" pots to start seeds in 2014 and am ordering two more for 2015. I loved using them! I started my tomatoes, squash, and eggplant in these. I found them easy to use: I lined up the holes on the bottom first before attaching the sides. It's best to use all of them in the tray so that they keep their square shape. The self-watering (wicking mat) was a nice feature for a novice seed starter. It was easy to lift up the tray to see if it needed more water. Once the plants were big enough, I transferred them to newspaper (origami) pots. It was easy to remove the baby plants and all of their soil without harming them or the roots. When the season was over, I rinsed them out and dried them outside. Then I stacked them flat and put them in a small box. I bought these because they're reusable and store flat. I'm so glad I did!

    pots are awful , terrible design

    By nicknack

    from NH



        Best Uses

          the pots do not air prune roots at all, they actually entangle them on the sides and bottom, so you are actually ripping roots off when you remove them to plant. whats wrong with the regular plastic pots , you can see through the drainage holes when they are ready to transplant and that works just fine. This is an unecessary invention it really has no positive extra benefits compared to conventional pots. i say dont bother with these overpriced useless pots.

          small, awkward

          By highlands gardener

          from Carmel, CA

          Verified Buyer



            • Flimsy
            • Hard to put together
            • Too small

            Best Uses

              I intended to use these pots for seedlings that had sprouted on pellets. However, the Velcro edges were very difficult to line up square. The material was too soft to function as a pot. Worst of all, they were too small to be of any use anyway. Completely bad idea.

              Still under review

              By KT

              • Reusable


              • Large Drainage Holes

              Best Uses

                I ordered two sets of the pot kit. They came with instructions on putting together the pots, but nothing about using the tray. For example, should I put water in the tray first, then the capillary mat, then pots? I first tried placing filled pots onto a dry tray and I think I run the risk of floating the seeds out of the medium. It seems obvious after making the mistake, but wish I had the Peel-away seed starting kit guide for dummies. My young son helped put together one kit and it was an example of why the pots need to be square (so that all 12 fit into one tray). I bought the red color, which is rather attractive, but may prove to be a sub-optimal choice later if the soil stains them. I plan to update after more use.
