Rated 4 out of 5 by GreatGardens from Pretty Decent Coir Pellets I've used these for several seasons since they were the type included in the 10-pellet self watering tray and dome (42mm). They work well for me, but I use fairly HOT water, and they do expand rapidly. Start to finish maybe 10 minutes. The coir in these is coarse, and that is a good thing, since fine material tends to stay way too wet. These don't, and using a heat mat, I get tomato germination in 5-6 days. Eggplant and peppers a few days longer. And they grow well, especially since I combine with bottom heat. The netting is a pain, but better than most since the top and bottom are completely open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MLT70 from The best alternative For many years I used peat pellets almost exclusively with mostly good results. A couple of years ago I began trying coir pellets and now use them almost exclusively. They have several benefits over peat: 1. They have a coarser more open texture. 2. Because of the open texture, they are less likely to encourage mold and fungus. Experienced growers are moving toward coir. For potting I continue to use mostly peat for economic reasons, but the coir seed starting pellets are worth trying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Spring fever from 50% germination rate I will not buy or use these again. Seeds planted in these pellets had a 50% germination rate. Seedlings were weak and spindly. Seeds from the same packet planted in potting soil had a 100% germination rate and are strong and healthy. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmp05 from Love these! I have used these for several years, with great success. Almost everything (both vegetable and flower seeds) has germinated, and they are easy and convenient. However, what I like the best is how easy it is to transplant into a larger container -- just pick up the pellet with the seedling and pop it into its new home. I had used seed starting mix and trays in the past, and found that if the seedling roots were not yet densely packed, the whole plant crumbled and fell apart when trying to transplant. That is NOT a problem with the coir pellets, and I will continue to use them year after year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cathyj000 from Eh. They're ok. These worked quite well, but they were very crumbly. The filling would fall out every time I watered it seemed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caliveggie from Near perfect germination rates! I have gotten near perfect germination rates and healthy and fast growing plants! With peat, some of my plants would stunt, but with these, they keep growing! Everything has done well once I've put it in the ground or in a pot, and I never forget plant food or good potting soil! These are the best for starting seeds! I've head healthier plants with these versus the peat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chukka from Poor pellets This is my second time in three years trying to start by seeds. I purposely purchased Burpee heirloom seeds this year. I saw these ECO-friendly Coir Pellets at a local big box store and thought I would try them. I had the heating mat and grow light set up and even bought a package for my friend. Most seeds germinated, but after that they seemed to stop growing. The second leaves were very slow to come in. My friend had the same issue. He purchased a peat based pellet and planted the same seeds 3 weeks later than the first group and the seedlings are easily 3 times the size. Picture shows Burpee pellets on the right and peat pellets on the left-same seeds and planted 3 weeks later These are worthless and have set back my garden by 6 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolinaHeirloom from Worked Perfectly! I read the other reviews and was surprised. I bought a pack of 48 a couple months ago to try out. I normally use the peat pots and seed starting mix, but the coir pelets seemed intriguing to me. I used all 48, and all 48 sprouted with the seeds I planted in them. I used 6 of them to get my Black Krim tomato plants growing and they took off right away. In fact they seem to be stronger and healthier than those I started in the peat pots. The ones I planted in peat pots grew tall, thin, and lanky. The coir pellets seem to have made my other plants stockier and not in much need of hardening off.
