It is now April 23, 2013. My seedlings are now mature "young adults" and most are happy. The seeds planted in these pellets, however, are not doing as well as they could.
I'll write about what I believe to be pro and cons, and you be the judge.
PRO: CONVENIENT. You can't beat the convenience of having these pellets delivered right to your door.
CON: THESE PELLETS ARE WAY OVER PRICED. You can get a Jiffy Professional Greenhouse 72 pellet set from Home Depot for 6.98 (I just verified the price today).
CON: THESE PELLETS CANNOT ACCOMMODATE LARGER SEEDLINGS. My young seedlings of larger plants were cramped from the very beginning. Lettuce seeds and other small seeds are really the only type of seed that these pellets can reasonably accommodate.
CON: MOISTURE RETENTION EXTREMES. These pellets are a nightmare of extremes when it comes to watering. They absorb water very quickly and immediately become soggy (you want moist, not soggy). Soggy roots means risk of rotting roots. Soggy seed starters also mean extreme risk of rotting seeds. Many of my seeds that take longer to germinate (nasturtiums in particular), simply rotted before they even sprouted roots. At the other extreme, these pellets dry out quickly. You really have to keep on top of them to avoid super thirsty seedlings.
CON: MATERIAL WRAPPED AROUND PEAT IS VERY HARD TO TEAR.Read more ›
Let me state that I have, however, used these pellets for the last couple years with great luck. They are very easy to use: pour warm water on, per the directions, for the pellets to expand, then start seeds per seed instructions. A plastic cover is included (with the flats, not this product here) as a dome for the flats during germination. I have good luck with germination rates, plus it's less messy than working with "loose" seed starting mix. Additionally, because I grow many of my transplants under lights for a period of time, I like that it's very easy to rearrange these, which is harder in peat or plastic flats where they are all stuck together. They're also very easy to transplant without much disturbance, since the netted "lining" around the expanded pellet is easy to remove (some people say they just leave it on, but it doesn't seem to disintegrate by the end of the season and I don't like dealing with it then).Read more ›
