I've been using jiffy products for years -- I swear by jiffy pellets. I prefer them over rockwool cubes, rapid rooters, and soil starters.
The pH of the jiffy pellet is always perfect, the pellets hold a good amount of moisture -- you wont need to water for 2-3 days, and the pellets make it very easy for roots to grow.
I highly recommend this product for people working in small spaces, but I DO NOT recommend you purchase this item online -- I've seen this exact same item for half the price at my local drug store and dollar store. Shop around before you make the purchase, but this is definitely the item you want to get!

If you've never used these before, there is a plastic tray with 12 starter pods included. You add a bit of water, which expands the starters. You then peel back the netting--with a toothpick or something of comparable size--and add two or three seeds. A plastic top is then put on the container and within a few weeks, the seeds turn to plants. You then acclimate your plantings and pop the whole thing in the ground.
The only problem I have with these things is that the unit is not particularly stable. The plastic is somewhat flimsy, and the plastic cover 'rests' on top, but it doesn't seal. This means you must have an out-of-the way location where wind, kids, cats, or others won't bump into them. I set mine in a large plastic tub below a window in our guest room.
The other thing to keep in mind is that you want to make sure you have 'tight' rooting before you plant these. If there is not a sufficient root base (knotted and firm), the plants don't take off very well and some might even die.
Anyhow, this is an efficient product for getting your seedlings started; I can't think of anything I would prefer over these.
1) Pour warm water into the black dish with the pellets in there.
2) Let it stand for a few minutes until all the water is soaked up by the pellets, any excess water should be blotted out.
3) Drop seeds in each pod. I recommend cutting the fabric at the top bigger for more dirt surface area.
4) Put clear plastic lid on top.
5) Give it lots of sunlight and warmth for a 1-2 weeks. Open the lid and spray lightly with water on the top every other day to prevent any mold from growing.
6) Remove the lid completely once the sprouts reach about 2 inches, before it touches the top of the lid.
7) Let it grow to 3-4 inches before transplanting into a bigger pot. Pay attention to soil, it will dry out quicker so water every few days by pouring warm water every few days, again blot any extra.
8) Cut the fabric at the bottom, or cut holes around the pod so that roots will be able to grow out of it.
9) Fill a small (4-6") pot with potting soil, place pod in the middle of the soil and throw some light dirt on it to cover the fabric.
That's it! It all seems complicated but it can be quite fun, and very fulfilling once your seedlings sprout. I've never had issues with sprouting seed by using these pellet mini-greenhouses. Recommended.
The only reason I'm giving the Mini Greenhouse a 4 star rating is the "clear plastic top is very light weight". It will blow off, unless you put something on top of it.
