Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KateNIn Great for starting seedlings
I've used Jiffy Peat pots off and on for the last 5 years. If kept wet, they decompose readily, and I've had no problem with my tomatoes continuing to root beyond the boundaries of the pots, however, if I had really dense soil, or my seedling was slightly rootbound, I would score the sides of a damp pot with a razor knife, to encourage the roots to come through. Overall, aided by common sense, I have been more than pleased with the result of using jiffy Peat Pots, and will continue to use them well into the future.

great for starting seeds to put outdoors, use a mister at first to keep soil moist and not to damage the young plants. and it will dry out faster then a regular pot due to its construction. when planting in spring tear off bottom to promote plant growth and water generously with some good slow release fertilizer.

Item works well. Person prior review says it prevents the roots from growing not true. It will continue to grow through the pot. Also if that is an issue transplanting is very easy to do with this pot.

If you start your seeds early, these are great. It takes a few weeks for them to breakdown, so for early planting these work well.

These seed starters do not decompose in the soil as stated. They will prevent the roots of your plant from reaching deeper soil, do not use!
