32 XL Cell Self-Watering Eco Friendly Ultimate Growing System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice idea I bought this and planted seeds in winter for a spring plant. The self-watering feature appears to work well. The thin plastic sheet to hold moisture in works ok, but a clear plastic dome would be better. It was very difficult to remove the seedlings from the tray when attempting to plant, but they were still rather small and I do not know if that had an impact.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not what I expected from Burpee. I bought this to expand my germination products. I grow several plants that require bottom watering to germination. With that said it did the job very well. Now to the reason I will not order this or anything from Burpee. I have been involved with Burpee for years. The materials used for the the water tray and the cells in garbage. I experienced the cells breaking and cracking with the simplest activity. I have other systems that I am still using from 4-5 years ago. This one didnt make it the first year. Burpee I find this to be against everything I believed you stood for; quality gardening products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tore after having for less than a week I had a seed starter kit from this company before that wasn't the XL. I loved it and wanted to get another. When transporting outside to harden off the seedlings, it tore and the seedlings were damaged. The bottom is made of cheap plastic and for it costing me $30+, I believe it shouldn't have torn as quickly has it had. I did like how quickly the seeds sprouted from the growing medium, but the material of this product brought the rating of the product so low.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it! The watering tray was cracked and useless when I received. Cheaply made. I followed directions to the letter. Some of the 32 pellets expanded as they should. I had to break the rest up by hand. Much simpler to use a bag of seed starter mix. Invest in a different system!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works I placed the tray under a four T5 lights in a plastic greenhouse. I achieved a 98% germination rate, on some difficult to germinate seed like pepper plants. My tray did not crack. Chief complaint is that Burpee does not supply enough labels for all the cells in the tray. Anyone that experiences problems with getting certain type of seeds to sprout, I highly recommend they use this system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality The premise of this system is great "self watering", however the quality is really poor. Only lasted one season, tray easily cracks then leaks. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy it feels like cheating This system is pretty idiot proof. I had great success with these when starting tomatoes and peppers indoors. I left my seedlings in this tray for a few weeks before I separated/thinned them into individual peat pots. The best part is that you can keep the system and reuse it over and over, all you'll need is more seed starting soil or pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing growing system!! I have tried many different indoor growing systems and this one surpasses them all. I am no longer dehydrating and then drowning my seedlings anymore. The self water system is the best because I don't have to remember all the time to check and make sure they have just the right amount of water, the growing system does it for me. I bought one and had to buy another. I also like that the sections are large enough that you don't have to transplant the seedlings right away and they have some time and space to develop their root system. All I can say is I love it and recommend it to everyone!
