    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst seeding system ever Despite reading some of the negative reviews I decided to go ahead and try this thinking that those with poor results just didn't follow directions. I received my kit, which is not as sturdy as other kits I have tried, but what the heck. It is just for seeds right? I followed directions to a tee! After putting warm water in each cell as directed - and yes I measured precisely, then waiting the miracle rapid expanding dirt, didn't expand. So I took the trays and submerged them in warm water for an hour, put the trays on a warming mat with lid on and STILL no expansion. This system is worthless if you can't even plant seeds! There are others in they same price range that work beautifully. Don't throw your money away on this one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So quality goes and price goes up I bought this XL grower in Walmart. Previous reviews were spot on. Quality of the pan, legs need help. Filmsy at best and will tear when water is added. Suggest a lip filler. Water Mat is good. Starter filler is uneven at best and downright skimpy for me. Plants send out roots too soon and block the pod. I had to clip platic pod to transplant early. Impossible to get plants out at times too. Thus pods are damaged and leak growing medium everywhere. Burpee increase price a LITTLE and keep quality good so I can trust your product. I will refill my own pods rather than trust your refills now.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started our better than it ended Thought I would try this kit. Big mistake. I started two kinds of peppers and one tomato variety. I've been gardening for 35 years, so I know how to do this. Very poor quality growing medium. I should have bought the seeds and planted them in a different seed starter. Week 2, the seedlings looked a little weak, but I thought that would resolve after good sunshine and tender care. Week 3, just about time to plant, the plants are literally dying. There is mold all over the surface of the tiny growing cells, the plants are weak, spindly and drooping. This is not a success, and I will be asking for a refund. Wasted all of the seeds, so I'll be heading out to the local nursery for my plants.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from makes soil too soggy Wanted an underwatering system to solve the ever present issue of dampening off caused by overhead watering. However, this system leaves the soil constantly soggy. As a result, every single cell molded over, despite living in an arid state and despite masochistically sterilizing prior to use. Seedlings need SLIGHTLY moist soil to succeed, and this system only creates soppy conditions. Had to remove capillary mats and return to overhead watering, but many of my seeds and seedlings are already toast.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pellets are not user friendly Overall this product is just ok. The pellets require some work to make most of them "work" like stated. Otherwise I am pleased with the unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well but... I seem to have the same problem as other that have given a review. The over all product is Very good and works well but the soil pellets do not do their job well at all! I would use your own seed soil you buy in a bag. My seed are all plaints now and almost ready for outside planting.
