Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yuna perfect seed starter for adenium obesum
i got this for my desert rose(adenium obesum) seeds and they all sprouted with the help of heating pad. sorry homedepot doesn't have refill for this. it says check the local homedepot but it doesn't allow me to order it or anything. the home depot near my house doesn't have it... so i'll have to get it from burpee website.
it will be very nice if there is an easier way to check the water level. i killed few seedlings because i forgot to fill up the water tray.
and the lid doesn't close the kit when you set it up. and as it grows the lid is too low... so i had to get a small green house for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gsrdl Best "Greenhouse" ever!
I have red other "Greenhouses" like this before. It works great. Every two or three days you put water in the bottom tray and walk away. Started my seedlings about two weeks ago and have 3 inch plants! Wonderful item!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Travlguy Hasn't worked
I have used these type of seed starting kits frequently in recent years to grow a variety of peppers. Normally works great but this one hasn't produced anything. Doesn't seem to hold moisture and create the required greenhouse effect as others i have purchased. Normally inner lid is very wet but this one is nearly dry. Air escaping somewhere..... Must have defect......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jake2259 Grows Plants Fast!
This particular seed starter kit is excellent. I planted seeds that were supposed to take a week to come up and only took 3 days, and some seeds that should have taken close to a month, accordint to the package, that sprouted after 2 weeks! The plants do great in this. Be careful when initially watering the pellets though because the pellets take a second to absorb the first bit of water and will float right out of the container if you pour too fast. I do wish that it were made of a more solid plastic that could be reused each year instead of the flimsy plastic made for just being a one time seed starter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteelBlue48310 Decent tray for a few plants
The little cubes took quite a while to break up and saturate, but overall the tray worked well. Difficult to move once water was poured in, so plan on a small board under it if you plan on moving it around at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Asvy STAY AWAY!!!
Two years in a row I buy this kit to start growing my tomatoes and peas and other plants (2 containers last year and 1 this year), second year in a row all of my plants die from verticillium wilt. This "is caused the fungi Verticillium albo-atrum and Verticillium dahliae. These fungi live in the soil and attack plants whose roots are stressed." The combination of the bacteria living in the soil and the rampage of the roots causes them to get sick and die. Only some flowers survive (I assume because they have less roots).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WorkinginLilyDale Early start for the plants
Wife wanted something to get the seedlings an early start, looked and the higher priced ones and this seemed to do the same job.
She is very happy with the results so far.....lets wait till planting time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jake2259 Excellent Product
This seed starter tray is wonderful. If you want to get your plants to sprout quickly, then this is for you. Seeds were supposed to take 7-10 days, and mine were up in 3. It's been 5 days total and I have 4 inch shoots already. Today I'm going to have to by bigger pots to transfer them to.
