    72 Cell Self-Watering Eco-Friendly Ultimate Growing System is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality; would not expand I bought the 36 kit at a big box store. Following directions EXACTLY, ALL the pellets failed to expand. I wound up dumping all the pellets in a clean buckets and breaking them up with a trowel. I then added a small amount of potting mix and refilled the trays. I am also using burped seed, so I guess I will see. I have not had issues before so I hope this is not an Indicator of declining quality with Burped.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent results First time user of the product, may have been part of the issue but A number of the pellets did not expand the way they were supposed to. As seedlings we're maturing a number of the cells developed a white residue and the seedling rapidly withered. Was careful to follow enclosed instruction closely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Seed Starter This was a great design compact and easy to clean. It kept my seeds moist through out the germination period even though I only needed to check them every other day. I thought the price was high until I used it. I highly requemend it

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for one season! I purchased three of these in the last few years and they work well in the first and into the second year. Unfortunately, they do not stand up because of the flimsy materials used to construct them. The cover cracks and tears, the seed trays become misshapen and wear out, the black under mount buckles and looses its shape and the wicking material separates after one cycle of use. If you are looking for a growing system that will last more than one season, this system will disappoint.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad pellets--please stop using coconut coir These pellets are made from coconut coir, which just does not work for growing things. I get that we all want to be environmentally responsible, after all, gardening is a significant part of that, but coconut coir should be banished from garden products, at least residential gardening products. nothing grows in this stuff for me. Maybe commercial growers with their fancy equipment can grow plants in coconut coir, but not for me. stick with peat for seed starting, please. I get that they are more expensive--just charge for it. No one wants to waste their time on failed seed starting.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Might as well use $25 to light a cigar. I have looked far and wide for the biggest waste of $25 over the years since e-commerce took off and I am confident that my search is finally over. As proof, I offer up the Burpee 72-cell "Ultimate Growing System." This engineering (lack of capitalization intended) marvel consists of the highest grade injection molded plastic that can be purchased for less than $1.25 per "system." The product contains valuable features such as a lid that is off-sized enough that it cannot maintain any top of retention to the base (although it does sit ont top jauntily tilted like a fedora from an old movie. Another feature is the non expanding soil pellets that allow you to test you home drainage as 73.6% of the soil disks do not expand but, simply alllow the disks soil to wash out the cell drain. In conclusion, if you are like me and trying to find the biggest waste of $25 on the internet, you might try ordering this product. As for me, next time I'll light a cigar.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 72 Call Seed Starting System-Pod Failure Thank you Burpee for turning a 20 minute project into and hour and a half. Most of the pellets remained rock hard and some were half sized. I ended up dumping them all in a bucket with hot water and still some wouldn't come apart. After breaking them up with my hands I had to fill each cell individually. What a mess. How about some quality control?
