    72 Cell Self-Watering Eco-Friendly Ultimate Growing System is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product Bought the 72 cell. Half of the pockets were cracked and only 1 of the expanding pellets actually expanded. Entire thing is going in the garbage and I will go back to paper cups and starting soil.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Product for Price Giving a 3 because the germinating sheet was in shreds and the hydration of the pellets took 4 days and some never really did absorb much water. Had to take out and break apart to get water absorption. Otherwise a good product. I am providing a recommendation to friends based on the service provided by Gardeners.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pods Do Not Expand - have to use potting soil I bought this thinking it would be great. Pods do NOT expand. You have to soak in warm water which I did. They did not fully soak up the water and only took up 1/3 of the pocket so I had to add potting soil.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Verry good company and products I have been buying from Burpee for 48 years. I have always been satisfied with seeds, plants, and other products I have received. Included in my purchases have been the seed starter kits which work very well. I have been able to use each starter kit I purchased for about 3 years. Follow the instructions and see the good results.

    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
