Missnamed-not "self-watering"

By Hiker Jim

from Sierra Mountains

About Me Avid Gardener

Pros

  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Flimsy
  • Needs Water Every Day
  • Thin Plastic Trays
  • Very Shallow Reservoir

Best Uses

    Comments about Self-Watering Transplant Pots:

    The bottom tray is very thin plastic and will be a single-use tray. The water reservoir is only 1/4" deep, so still needs to be watered daily. I was expecting a deep reservoir with platform and wicking mat, like my seed-starter kit. Very disappointed!

    Comments about Self-Watering Transplant Pots:

    I really like these pots in all sizes for growing seeds indoors. The others are cumbersome and difficult to manage. That said, I am getting mold, but that has nothing to do with this kit.

        Comments about Self-Watering Transplant Pots:

        The bottom reservoir does not have an obvious fill area once the top plant area is placed. And, after 2 weeks I already have a leak in one of the bottom reservoirs (I bought 2). The starter sets that I have had for 5 years have a much more sturdy base than these. I would not purchase these again unless they were upgraded

            I already own a set of the 2" reusable pots and have been well pleased with them. I decided to buy a set of the 4" transplant pots to grow my plants to the proper size for planting in the garden. It's perfect for my needs, the plants thrive in them and I won't be buying as many peat pots.

              Rather expensive, to be honest, but so absolutely perfect for transplanting indoor pepper and tomato starts and use under grow lights.

              Comments about Self-Watering Transplant Pots:

              I have used the 2" and 3" pots for many years for transplanting many varieties of flower and a few common vegetable seedlings from seed starting cells. They work beautifully! I love the bright orange pots; when I transplant the plants into the garden, I never lose a pot. The pots are sturdy enough for my purposes, and I have never broken one. The rest of the assembly could be made of tougher stuff, though. My best recommendation to Gardener's Supply is to please, please make an intermediary size: perhaps 24 to 30 2 1/2" pots. This would exactly suit my needs, and I would be surprised if it did not suit those of other gardeners as well.

                I ordered this particle product because I couldn't get what I wanted. What I really wanted was a tray that held only held 12 pots but 2inches in diameter.
                I have a grapefruit tree in my yard and I wanted to start new starters. Twelve trees are certainly enough trees to start off and each seed certainly doesn't need a four inch pot.

                Comments about Self-Watering Transplant Pots:

                I have used the APS seed starters for years and now that they aren't readily available this item seemed like a decent option. I didn't look over the water tray close enough and found out after I had filled it I had a weeping leak. As I had the pots already filled with seeds I grabbed the marine caulking and did a quick patch and put it to work. I did get quick results and all the seeds came up, so I did like its propagation ability.
