Thank you for your question. In effort not to be vague it really depends on the variety you are growing and days to germ. Rule of thumb is when starting seed indoors, in any kit, you want to start approximately 8-10 weeks before your average last frost date or when you plan to transplant into the garden. In regards to your average last frost date you can do a search for your zip code or city and it should come up. If by chance your not able to transplant as planned, on most varieties you can leave in kit for another couple of weeks or longer. During this time, after 12 weeks, if you start seeing roots come to the top of the soil then it's best to transplant into garden or a large peat pot for example. Most stores carry the Jiffy 4" Round Peat Pot or sku 1001054321 to aid in this. If you do move to a peat pot you can plant pot and all into the soil with no harm to the roots and plant. In hopes this helps and if we can be of further assistance don't hesitate to reach out to our customer service team at 508.285.5800 and our best to you this season.

As long as your soil isn’t too wet you should be able to pop them out from the bottom.
I have used mine more than once. Before re-using, I have treated them with a sterilizing solution.
well, if there is a water tray under the seed tray than it would wick up from the water tray...but, I have only seen this with other trays not this particular product...I would think that someone else could answer that has actually purchased this tray from HomeDepot
No soil is included. I bought a small bag of potting soil as regular soil is not recommended. I used some peat pellets in some hexagons, but the potting soil did better and did not dry out as quickly. The hexagons are fairly small, so my guess would be 1-2 quarts of soil.
I make a 75/25 blend of garden soil and peat moss. Stir it in a bucket and push it down manually. I like it tight enough so that when I remove the pods the soil holds together. I then soak the whole tray until it puddles on top, lift the inner tray and drain the remaining water. The new seeds don't drink much water so sometimes once is enough, if anything, you can add one more shot of water. Go easy if you need a second watering. I use a spray bottle and water the seedlings generously allowing the runoff to permeate the soil pods.
#6...steer clear will leach and not good for you or your plants!
