    72 Cell Self-Watering Ultimate Growing System is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work The pellets are far too small to fill the cells and although I followed the directions and even left the pellets in the cells overnight, in the morning the pellets still had not expanded, clearly not getting enough water from the watering mat. Waste of money:(

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work as advertised I bought this kit last night, followed the instructions to a T. They did not expand so I had to break them all up myself which was pretty difficult and time consuming. Once they were all broken up they filled 1/4 of the cell. And because they didn't expand they left the cells drowning in water. I put my seeds in and left it overnight thinking that maybe the soil would absorb the rest of the water but I woke up this morning to no change. I'm thinking I'm going to need to start over because there's just not enough soil in them. To add insult to injury, it was missing a few of the soil blocks...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother I was given this as a gift. As an avid gardener, I would have never purchased it myself. It's complicated, and doesn't work well. I'm going to use regular seed starter mix in it. Don't purchase! This is a waste of money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother Six hours of soaking pellets and they still have not expanded. Followed directions and nothing in three hours. submerged them completely i warm water for another three hours and still nothing. I will leave overnight and see if anything happens. Review will not allow Zero stars

    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.
