Product Description

The Jiffy-7 42mm pellet is made from sphagnum peat from specially selected peat bogs. Lime and a special fertilizer with a low ammonium content are added to the peat in order to stimulate growth. The pellets have a pH of approximately 5.3 and are wrapped in a thin, degradable net. Ideal for starting your seeds indoors! Just put a few seeds in each pellet and add water. Each pellet has its own compartment.

This is a fantastic product, but yet someone posts a one star review for the product because they found it cheaper somewhere else. The review is for the product. If the product is excellent, you don't give it one star!! Amazon should just delete those kinds of reviews that aren't relevant to the quality of the product.

What I like about these is the sprouts that come out of them seem stronger and they can continue to grow from this pellet right to the garden. The little plastic solutions are good, but they require transplant or the plants grow right through the bottom and you have to damage the roots to get them out if you leave them too long.

That said, a good plastic base with egg cartons works surprisingly well. The cartons hold water well because they absorb it like a sponge and the roots can't push through the bottom.

You can get these peat pellets in different plastic growing containers ready to go, which I found incredibly useful and the container kits are cheap! The peat pellets hold water for an incredibly long time keeping a moist environment for the plants longer than even my egg carton solution. If you want easy sprouting, this is the way to go.

Nice product good for growing cuttings or starting seeds. Just water and watch these lil pellets swell up before your eyes. So easy to transplant too! Peat moss is good for encouraging root growth and I am having great sucess starting seeds with these.

I had some of these that I bought in case I ever needed them. They were easy to toss in a drawer in the greenhouse and were ready to go when I did need them. They are an effective way to start seeds.

Just don't allow the seeds to bury themselves so far down in the material that they can never find their way to the light of day. That's true no matter what kind of seed-starting material you use, of course.

The Jiffy Peat pellets in the 200 count are larger than the peat pellets that come in the Jiffy seed starting kit with the plastic clear dome and the holding trays so you cannot replace the peat pellets in the trays of the seed starting kit. HOWEVER, you can simply take out the trays and put these peat pellets on the water soaking carpet underneath the trays. This is actually better because you can fit more pellets into the dome. So, if you have the seed starting kit, I would recommend getting these peat pellets and just taking out the holding trays.

After ordering a couple other of the wrong size pellets, I was excited to get these under the impression that they would be the correct 42mm size. As received by seller toolboxsupply, these are the 36mm pellets (which, by the way, seem to be much more widely available; I'm having problems finding the 42mm size anywhere, but I was REALLY expecting these to be that size because the product's title explicitly states this).

I assume this might depend a bit on the seller--but I doubt I'm going to try buying these from Amazon again, this being my second attempt. I am hesitant to rank the *product* down for that reason, but it's really apparently a problem with this *listing* and one that I don't want others to fall into this trap. I'd avoid this unless you don't really care which size you get--but if you have the flats already (and I don't know why or how you'd use these without them), it *does* matter.

I'd like to give the product itself more stars: while perhaps more expensive than loose seed starting mix, these work well and are very easy to use assuming you follow the directions. Plus, the netting is easy to remove when transplanting or potting up with minimal root disturbance (as long as you don't let the roots get so big they creep through the netting). But it seems exceptionally difficult to find correctly-sized, reasonably priced pellets for your existing Jiffy flats (they make at least four sizes I know of, ranging from 30-50mm). But because of problems with the listing or at least some sellers, I don't think I can do that. I'll revise if this problem is ever fixed, because the product itself does work well if you manage to find the right one among Jiffy's lack of size labeling (and apparently Amazon's or others' confusion).

Most of my gardening is done indoors or on my terrace, since I am an apartment dweller. These pellets contain everything necessary to grow healthy plants, and do not produce a mess for you to clean up. Easy to use, and producing beautiful healthy plants. I love growing things!

I do use them for starting seeds indoors and they work well. The one thing I don't like is the mesh. It's supposed to decompose but years later, some still show up. I found a solution, as soon as the roots of the little plant start to show I take off the mesh (carefully). When the plants are ready to plant outside I never have a problem getting the peat to stay together. As to the person complaining about the price, I agree. Walmart now has the small size in 36 count boxes for a lot less per pellet and that's without the shipping. Bulk prices should reflect the fact that you are buying in bulk.

These were exactly what we needed. We got some cookie pans with a clear plastic cover and almost 100% of our tomato, pepper and bean seeds started growing within a couple weeks. They are a bit bigger than the traditional ones. Measuring about 2.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide. Just make sure to keep them moist as they act like a sponge.
