Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment I am highly disappointed in this product. I admit that with in a week my seeds had germinated, however, when it came time to transplant. I could not remove the seedling and soil from the containers without damaging it. The pellets, heating pad, watering system and grow light were phenomenal. But it was all for naught. I lost over half of my seedlings removing them and the soil from the cells. I must have larger hands and fingers than is required. Looking for another solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mold invasion I purchased the burpee 32xl cell seed starting kit including the pods you soak to inflate, i also picked up 2 other just plastic trays, covers and jiffy seed starting mix, started all the same day with the same seeds, 3 days later theres mold on the burpee trays only and no sprouting of plants just mold growing. The other trays with the jiffy actually has plants growing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So far Bought this a month ago, set it up yesterday. I did not keep the box, and looked here for instructions, which are not readily apparent, and are blurry on an iPad. I suggest including an instruction sheet in box. Also, give them online on a dedicated page. Also, the flimsy paper covers do not work, luckily I found a clear plastic replacement I suggest including the dome cover in all kits. Flimsy plastic isn’t ecologically better than the dome. I had this kit 5 Years ago and it worked well. If my seeds grow I will add another star.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Worth the Money This thing arived undamaged a few days ago and looked very much like the same product I have ysed for years, except that it no longer has the clear plastic cover/shield. This thing imediatly started leaking water. After dumping the water and inspecting I discovered several small cracks in the pan. I don't know if this is a result of being too thin or just poor grade plastic. I lined the pan with a garbage bag and it's now holding water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, and it did the job This is pretty straight forward and simple system to use. Got it quick planted, seeds germinated and did the job. Actually good thing is, after you are done there is little left to store, so it is just a flat left sitting in the garage for next year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality! I was so excited about using this system to start seeds. Didn’t expect this quality from Burpee. The plastic base was such bad quality, it was cracked and chipped and could not be used. Also, I was under the impression it had a plastic cover for germination, but two sheets of something were included instead. Very cheap. Don’t waste your time. I’m keeping the seeds I purchased, we’ll see how they do.
