I ordered these from Hirt's via Amazon.com and I was just looking for seed starting greenhouses that were smaller (25 pellets is a nice size) and that shipped via Prime.
As the other reviewed noted, the listing is inaccurate. Really inaccurate.
BUT the product I received works really well and for me is more enjoyable and less messy than traditional peat pellets and from what I have been reading the coir (coconut fiber) pellets and planting in coir (google it, YMMV, I'm no expert) can make the difference between fungus and fungus gnats and avoiding those little flying bits of evil (that just destroyed a whole pot of Chinese Lantern seedlings after transplant. Grrrrr.)

So here is what you do get: a 25 pellet PLA Watering Tray, PLA Clear Greenhouse Dome Lid, 25 netted coconut fiber pellets, 25 pellet plant-o-gram.

The wrapping says that the tray and lid are PLA a 100% renewable resource, non fossilfuel thermoplastic, degradable, and industrial compostable is certifiable to ASTM 0-6400 or ASTM 06868-03 as compostable. They are recycling symbol "7" if you choose to recycle them.

Other than that and the coconut fiber, they are pretty much like any other seed starting plastic kit- not the strongest plastic, probably not meant to be moved around a whole bunch and the lid just rests on top, doesn't "snap" on, which had me concerned now that I'm all freaked out about seedlings getting munched by flying critters (I'm container gardening on a screened lanai, but some buggies are small enough as juveniles to get through... Grrrr.)

The plant-o-gram is a sheet of paper with coordinates so you can keep track of what was planted where. The tray design is channeled, so water poured around the edges goes to all of the pellets.

The only reason I ordered this specific kit is because I used it before and I really liked the results. When I got my order it was an ecofriendly kit but not the one shown in the picture and as decribed. I think it might be a new version from burpee but since its not as described or what I thought I was ordering I dont know how well this new product works. They should really change the picture and description if this is a new product and the old one which is shown is no longer available. Update the product info. I'm keeping the kit and trying it out because I even went on[...] and they don't have the product either. Hopefully this new kit works just as good.

dared to buy one of these and the lid is so poorly made and warped that it absolutely will NOT stay in place, its bow inward and leaves giant air gaps that will lead tot he 'soil' drying out quickly in my home. Going to rip it apart and try using tupperware to make something that's actually useable.

I've been a regular gardener for about six years. I live in South Florida, garden year-round, warm weather, plenty of rain. I usually start seeds indoors to give myself a bit of leeway with the plants that are still producing in the garden. I've started hundreds of plants indoors. I generally use the Jiffy peat pellets, which are terrific, but the weren't available recently when I needed them, so I gave these a try.

The instructions are okay. The pellets expand in 1 oz warm water per pellet. There's a dimple large enough for tiny seeds, like lettuce or carrot seeds. Anything larger, even cucumber seeds, requires you to enlarge the hole. At this point, the peat starts to disintegrate, and you get large chunks of peat all over the place. After planting your seeds in the pots, the peat doesn't really compact down over the seeds well. Add water, and it just washes away what peat is left on top of the seeds.

Although I fully covered the seeds, they didn't germinate well for me. Furthermore, some of the young seedlings died after transplant to the garden. I assume that had something to do with the entire pot disintegrating during transplant.

I highly recommend the Jiffy peat pellets instead. The peat is smaller "grind," so it remains more compact, delivering water to your seeds and seedlings without drowning them. If you need to enlarge the holes, the peat acts more like soil and stays in the pot, and can be compacted back over the seeds. The mesh net removes easily, and the pot still stays compacted, so roots aren't damaged by the pot falling to pieces. I've had a lot of success with germination and transplant using Jiffy pellets. Now I know not to use anything else.

Super easy to use. The greenhouse kit came as described. 4 stars only because I saw it at Home Depot later for the same or lower price.
