best way to start seedlings
Since I cannot edit my previous review, I will start another one. This year I started green peppers using 3 methods. The 1st method was peat pellets. The 2nd was jiffy strips with potting soil. And 3rd was the root trainers with the same potting soil used for method 2. The difference is striking. The peppers in the root trainers are much larger than peppers in methods 1 and 2. The roots have filled the root trainers nicely without growing out the bottom or becoming root bound.The roots of the peppers in both methods 1 and 2 have grown out of their containers and into the adjoining containers. So, I am pulling roots apart as I transplant them. The peppers grown in the root trainers are off to a much better start than in the other 2 methods. This is 2 years of testing with repeating results. I will be buying more root trainers as soon as they become available.
Great for seed starting
I bought one of these this year to try them. They are great. The plants started in them developed great root systems. The depth and the volume of these starting cups provides enough room for a really great root ball to form inside the cups instead of in a mass all tangled together in the bottom of the tray. I will buy more this year. I want to get enough to start all my plants in them. They are sturdy enough to last many years as long as they are taken care properly.
