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.

72-Cell Self-Watering Greenhouse Kit is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does the job While itdoes what it is supposed to the lid doesn't fit. I found out later that this is a common issue Also, the tabs did not expand on their own, we had to help them out. Would not use again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed already I purchased this Burpee seed starting tray at Home Depot. After CAREFULLY following instructions, the pellets did not only not expand in "seconds" to fill the tray, none of them expanded to fill the tray. A few expanded to resemble fat cigars stuck inside the tray, with space all around them. Despite pouring much more warm water than recommended, and waiting and waiting, it was clear they were not going to expand. I ended up having to break them up with a fork, and even then, the amount of dirt/peat only filled the individual cups about half way, so I had to add some potting soil to make them viable for planting. Not impressed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Biggest Waste of Money Just do it the old fashion way. The seed cells are too compact and don't open up.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me I was really excited about getting this kit. I wanted to get some seed started for my garden. Unfortunately, this kit was a disaster for me All I grew was a mold that killed a few seeds that were actually growing. It was a waste of my money

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Go with the Jiffy self-watering kit. I bought one each of the Jiffy kit and the Burpee kit. The Jiffy one seems to be of higher quality, and costs $2 less. Its pellets also have the benefit of being wrapped in a light mesh making transplanting a little easier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money The self watering is a joke. The water never leachs into the soil. I also cant seem to find any seed pellets that go with the kit for a second use. Over all i would suggest using a egg carton and a pan of water.
