Rated 4 out of 5Â by GardenGal Exactly what I needed
This seed starting kit is exactly what I needed to get my garden started this spring. Also bought a heat mat locally to give seedlings another boost. (That would be a nice addition to the kit, or an optional piece.) Arrived quickly, was well-packed and easy to set up. I like that the light can be set at two different heights (I also bought a shorter dome locally to get light closer to seeds initially -- another nice option to think about for the kit). Seeds are sprouted and looking good.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by paul instructions with no diagrams - it works though
There are no instructions on how to use it for it's purpose; growing seeds. It's designed for two lamps but only one lamp comes with it. I don't know where you buy a second lamp separately, couldn't find it on the home depot website. There are instructions to hard-fix the lamps, but I couldn't follow them and you don't really need to as the lamps just sit on the frames. The seeds actually do grow quickly with this design. I like how it's designed not to over-water (water drips into a bottom pan). Once the seeds sprout and have leaves you can flip the lamp frames over to get the lamp closer to the plants (I think that's what you're supposed to do, but again no instructions). I wish it had instructions to tell when to replant the sprouts.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Phoenix This product is not for everyone.
This product is a one light system and you must purchase a second light from another source Home depot does not carry the light for this system nor do they carry the tray or the stand or the cover . If you have a issue with any of the parts in the system you must find a second source for replacements. But I will say that if you are new to this than it maybe what you are looking for. As to quality the cover is very flimsy my came already with a crumple corner even though the package was in good shape and the light is very cheaply made the power switch does not want to stay in the housing. Now the value since having to research for another light a came across several other source were the parts can be purchased cheaper than the complete or almost complete setup here. In conclusion if you are looking for a complete one light set than this is for you if you are someone who does not mind looking around for the part to put this together than this is not for you.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by teddyburker flimsy and cheap.
Dome is very flimsy and lightweight.
The light is worth about $30.00.
Better products on market for far less money!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by FridayMusic Really works. Would recommend.
I really like this product, but do feel it's a little pricey. The major drawback is that there are no instructions included for setting up the light or how to use the peat cups included.
