    72 Cell Self-Watering Ultimate Growing System is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Soil pellets do not expand, clear top does not fit. Seems poorly designed. Would give zero stars if possible.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete Failure Bought this for the wife's flower seeds. Followed instructions to a tee, but pellets failed to expand properly (they may have doubled in size, but that's all). We wound up breaking up the pellets and adding seed starting media. A waste of money. Burpee, you need better QC!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Somethings Changed. I've been buying your seed starting tray for 4 seasons now, and part of the reason why I loved them was because your pellets expanded fully to fit the wells without much fuss and I would get 90% success in all of my seeds. But this year, I'm disappointed. Not only did your pellets fail to expand like they have in previous years (they barely filled half of the well), but less than half of my seeds got past the 2 leaf stage, if even emerged at all. I liked your system and the success that it provided, but now, I don't. Bummer. :(

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Instant Swelling I regret to say that I ignored the reviews that I read that suggested that the pellets would not swell in seconds as advertised. The watering system seems cool and with a bag of potting soil, I can get it to work. But my advice is to NOT buy this if you are counting on instantly swelling pellets.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work as advertised. I followed the directions exactly, but the cells did not expand in seconds like it said they would. After adding more water and giving plenty of time, I called customer service and was told that I need to break each cell up by hand or with a fork - all 72 of them. After doing that, many of them still did not expand very well and I had to add my own potting soil. It was much more time consuming than it should have been! Also, the flimsy plastic lid does not fit properly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy construction; planting medium does not work Seed start kit, while economical, was of much flimsier construction than I expected. Grow pellets don't work. (I added warm water slowly as instructed. It all ran off. then I tried soaking them in warm water. That was hours ago; they still have not expanded to fill even a third of the volume of each cell.) I will need to make an unexpected trip to buy potting materials. Since convenience was my main reason for buying a kit in the first place, this kit has fallen far, far short of my expectations.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed I ordered from this site because I have been very pleased with seeds and plants purchased previously. This "system" is overpriced for the flimsy nature of its construction, and the growing medium pellets do not expand at all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from seed starting greenhouse kit I am not pleased with the amount of medium in the pellet.
