    32 XL Cell Self-Watering Ultimate Growing System is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 107.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I have about 10 of these now and they help out a bunch if you can't monitor multiple times a day for weeks. After reading some of the reviews, let me say this. I don't use the expanding soil pucks. They are a pain. I recommend throwing them out and using seed starting mix from a bag. You can dump it on and spread by hand very quickly. You have to keep a fan on these as the soil stays constantly moist and will grow mold with no air circulation. You're buying this product for the mat that absorbs the water from the tray and through capillary action waters the plant from the bottom and this feature works well. It will last about a week between waterings. Burpee would be better off offering this product paired with a bag of seed starting mix.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from simplifies starters the best feature is the water absorbing matte under the expanding pellets. It helps you keep just enough water in the pellets and keeps a supply of water in the tray. I started chiles after soaking the seeds in water and had great luck.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS is your "easiest" system?! The pellets did not expand upon 3 attempts. I followed written instructions exactly and watched the Burpee video. I eventually had to dig each one out from its tiny hole to soak it and break it up with my hands. It made a MESS! I wasted so much soil I had to go out and buy more potting soil.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing grows! I bought this from Home Depot and absolutely regret buying it. I've had it for a little over a month and it's sprouted about three plants, but they all wilted right away. It's even growing mold. Not a happy customer. Will not buy this brand again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I bought this product from Home Depot and I'm very disappointed in the quality. The seed cells were a mess! They were all different sizes and some had too much fill and others had not enough. It took me 2 hours to fix the problem. Also the tray is incredibly flimsy and not easy to move. Burpee, you can do much better than this!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pellets are too much work Pellets are a nightmare to get to expand consistently. And yes,I followed the directions perfectly. In some cells, I decided to just use dirt and that worked fine. Easier to transplant that way anyway. Pellet-based growing medium is too flimsy and falls apart. Rest of the unit is well designed. Doesn’t seem compatible with a heat mat though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The pellets for this years Ultimate growing season I have been using the Burpee 32XL Cell Self-Watering Ultimate Growing System for many years. I have considered it the best way to start my vegetables. I was shocked this year when I tried to soak the pellets. They are far inferior to the ones from past years. I am an experienced gardener and used very hot water to soak them. I finally just pulled them all apart with my fingers. Fortunately, I purchased some of the pellets a few years ago and topped my seeds with them. They worked just fine and had great expansion. Burpee please go back to your old pellets. The current ones I purchased where no good!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality This is a piece of junk. It is flimsy and the parts don't even sit level on a flat surface. The dome doesn't fit on the unit. But the worst part is the pellets never got soft. I had to bang them with a fork to get apart even after sitting overnight. One of them puffed up and absorbed water. I had to add some seed starting mix to the cells to plant seeds. Years ago I bought these and they were good but junk now.
