Rootrainer ™ Seedstarters Encourage Healthy Root Growth

  • Grooved growing cells promote healthy, downward root growth
  • Roots don't spiral, so seedlings transplant better than pot-bound seedlings
  • Growing cells hinge so it's easy to remove plants without disturbing roots

Rootrainer seedstarters have grooved cells that promote downward root growth and discourage spiraling, yielding deep-rooted seedlings that transplant easily and adapt quickly to the garden. Cells are 1-1⁄2" square at the top, and they hinge so you can monitor root growth and remove plants without disturbing roots. Made from plastic; may be reused. The Deep Rootrainer has 32 cells with a holding frame; no waterproof tray or cover.

  • Plastic
  • 11-1/2" L x 9" W x 3-1/2" H overall with 32 1-1/2" square x 5"H cells
  • Includes holding frame
  • Waterproof tray and cover not included

Comments about Rootrainer™, Deep:

I am a master gardner. I grow my own vegatables each year from seed. I bought this to see how well it worked. This was great for my plants. They did develop great roots and grew very well. I was hoping to get multiple uses out of it, however, most of the sections ripped when I removed the plants. It is rather expensive for a single use product. I would highly recommend this product if it were made of a heavier plastic and could be used several times.

      Comments about Rootrainer™, Deep:

      i'm very excited to try these out. i love the way i'll be able to easily pop out the seedlings and their roots when i'm ready to transplant them in the ground. i have doubts about the durability of the plastic. i'd hoped to get more than one seasons use out of them at their price. i'm unsure if that'll be possible.

      Comments about Rootrainer™, Deep:

      These will do the job but they are made of the flimsy plastic that many of the seed starting trays are made of. I was expecting a more durable plastic. Another thing to note, they will not stay closed unless all of them are packed into the tray they come with. I was expecting more but they'll work.

        Great for plants with long roots. The roots don't circle around the planter they go down. So far I have had no problems with putting them together or with the lightweight materials.

          Comments about Rootrainer™, Deep:

          I have only so much space under my grow lights. With this clever system, I can start twice as many plants, without crowding the roots. Easy to remove. Just love it. I got them when many of my seedlings had already been planted, but I did get to use them to plant a pack of summer blooming annuals. Fabulous.
