Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaniLou Every seed germinated
Contrary to another reviewer, every single one of my seeds germinated and continued to grow without any burning or chemical issues. I followed the instructions almost exactly. It's 80 to 90 degrees in my climate so I put them outside from day 1 on a covered porch so that they would not receive direct sunlight all day. I have used several of these trays for everything from flowers to vegetables (tomatoes, beans, peppers, squashes, etc.). Now granted, my bf bought a tray at the same time as I did and shared seeds with me and very few of his germinated. The only thing we could figure that he did differently is perhaps pack the dirt down too tightly over the seeds.

I started tomatoes and peppers under a grow light. Once they had germinated, I removed the top and put the planter in the sun. Later that day, the seedlings looked burnt, so I took them out of the sun. Several days later, tried the same thing with the same results. Put the survivors in another container and they are doing well. I think that the sun reacts with the container plastic to create a chemical that is toxic to small plants.
