          Best Uses

          • keeps seedlings moist without over watering

          Comments about Capillary Matting, 3 Yards:

          I used this to line seedling trays this year. In the past I had trouble with damping off and the ridges in the bottoms of plastic trays holding seed packs made for inconsistent watering. This year I lined the bottoms of trays with this mat and my cell packs seemed to be more uniformly moist when I watered. Much better seedling germination and survival.

              I line all of my planters and baskets with this matting. It keeps the roots moist and prevents them from drying out in between watering.

              Good product. I bought it to replace older mats from grow systems. Works great. Would have been better if dimensions fit the standard trays better.

                  I needed to set up a self watering seed starting system for 4 flats of tomatoes. The capillary matting was much less expensive that having to buy four seed starter kits with self watering mats. The capillary matting let me use the equipment I already have and to modify it to suit my needs. The matting hits all my major needs on cost, functionality, flexibility, and durability.

                      I have used this product for a couple of years, and was dismayed this year, because the felt is not the same - much thinner. I don't know how it will work yet, but I am not happy that I ordered what I thought I had been buying, and got something different.
