Customer Questions & Answers

I'm wanting to start ghost peppers which says 80 to 90 degrees should I place a starter heat pad under or not needed.

Asked by: Frank
Pepper seeds need heat (and patience) to sprout. Keep the seeds moist and at least 80 degrees. I use three thermometers and low wattage light bulbs (a string of Christmas lights works well) underneath to supply the heat, moving the bulbs closer or farther away as needed. 85 degrees F is ideal. Do not allow the seeds to dry out but not soaking wet either.

Temperature &

At what temperature should I keep Kit after adding seeds(min & max temp.)? What vegetables can kit germinate!
Asked by: Yousef
The soil temperature for germinating seeds actually varies by the seed type, but most seeds germinate best at 70-75 degrees F. You can start any seed in the kits that are recommended to be started indoors, such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplants. Do not use them for direct sow crops, such as cucumbers, beans and peas. Whether they should be started indoors or direct sown will always be included on the seed packet. Happy Gardening!

Can I add miracle grow in the water?

Asked by: Mark
We would not recommend fertilizing your seedling until they are 3-4" tall and in that case we recommend a liquid balanced houseplant fertilizer at about 1/4 - 1/2 strength. Miracle Grow is too strong for seedlings.

Seventy-two cells allows for starting quite a few plants in a compact space. It is a bit fussy in that you have to rearrange the pellets so they sit correctly in the bottom of the individual cells before adding water. Also, they don't all expand to the same height in the cells if you don't pour in the same amount of water in each cell. You may have to fuss with the pellets a bit after they expand so they fill each cell completely. I set the completed tray on a heating mat for seed starting to get things growing more quickly. Time will tell how well my newly planted seeds will germinate.

I had no trouble with the same product last year. This year, after buying two of the 72-cell self watering kits from HD, no amount of adding warm water to the individual pellets in each cell would cause them to 'fluff up' so that you'd want to grow your seeds in them. It took me a full hour and a half of slowly pouring warm water in each cell, after carefully placing each pellet flat side down in the cells, using a spoon to mix each cell and trying to penetrate the hard-as-rock pellet, before anything happened. Even then, the growing medium only filled about one-third the cell, necessitating the addition of another growing medium on top of it in order to have any growing space for the seedling. There is definitely something wrong with the hard-as-rock pellets this year; do not waste your time trying to get this product to work. At the price Burpee charges, it should work easily and flawlessly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the cost The lid doesn't fit right - slides off and onto the seedlings - and some of the pellets didn't absorb water, leaving 4-5 empty spots. I'd buy a tray without pellets and use my own soil next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money, worst kit I've ever used I've used the Burpee 36-cell tray in the past and had been pleased, so I gave the 72-cell tray a try since we expanded our garden this year. As other reviewers have stated, the soil pellets don't expand and absorb water evenly and needed to be manally "fluffed". I too had issues with mold/mildew and excessive wetness of the soil pods, leading to seedlings failing to sprout or dying - I have never had less than 100% sprouting success with the 36-cell tray. The seedlings never developed a strong root system, even after 6 weeks (good old New England weather delayed transplanting a few weeks). This became obvious at planting time, when this tray proved its uselessness in spades. I couldn't get the seedlings out of the tray without destroying the root ball, or ultimately cutting the tray into pieces. Of the seedlings that actually sprouted and lived to move outside (maybe 75%), I lost another 25% after transplanting thanks to weak and ruined roots. I found this kit frustrating while indoors, and infuriating outdoors. I will not be using this it in the future, and highly recommend using another product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product could be strudier 72-Cell Self-Watering Greenhouse Kit was a real disappointment. The assembly as a whole was rather flimsy. The instructions state to place the kit in the area where you want it to stay before planting and watering. That is a great idea considering the fact that it is so flimsy. The initial watering of the kit was easy enough, but the manufacturers could have made it a lot more convenient to replace water in the reservoir if they had left room on the sides to add water. The expanding pellets were less than effective. After adding water they only expanded to fill about half the cup and I had to add extra potting soil to ensure the seeds were set correctly. The clear plastic covering did not fit securely or firmly over the kit and would become dislodged at the slightest bump. I would recommend not wasting your money on this product.
