XL Super Growing Pellets is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing! I always have had very good experience with Burpee products. I purchased the 32 cell self watering ultimate system last year and decided to purchase replacement pods because of the ease of using them. Just received today and was disappointed in the quality. They were not all the same height and looked like there was no quality control. Have not used these new ones yet, but hope they work as well as the originals which were much more consistant. I typically use another company's potting soil but these pods are very convenient and simple to use. Expect that the smaller ones will not fill the cells as much as necessary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work - crumbled If you plan to use these for anything other than the original cell holders, forget it, as they crumble and disintegrate the moment they touch water. I ended up crumbling them into my container just like dirt and had high hopes, but within 3 days mold has developed all over all the top of the dirt, so obviously these have not been sterilized. I have put a little lemon juice on some of it as a test to see if the pH change will help the mold, but it's likely I've just got dozens of ruined plant starts :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed - Different from the COIR Pellets I originally bought a number of the COIR pellets and the associated trays from Burpee. They turned out great last spring. I made a bad mistake and ordered the XL Super Growing Pellets for this year, thinking I could use them with the same tray. These XL pellets are made to drop into an exising cell where they can expand to fill the cell area when they are moisened. If you use them with the tray made for the COIR pellets, they just crumble and are useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!! I used these with Burpee's Ultimate Growing System. They were easy to handle and filled up the cells to the top, some of them even overflowed the cells!! They expanded within 30 seconds to fill any size and shape. I would recommend this product to anyone; my experience with these was just great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Outstanding grow pellets" I purchased 2- 36XL systems. Never before using them and the results were amazing when I used a heat mat. Every seed came up and the root system on the Squash seeds was truly amazing with roots up to 8" long sitting in the heated water in the bottom of the tray. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to get an early start to there growing season. I've been gardening for over 45 years and can truly say it does what they say it will do and then more if you use the heat mat. I've transplanted the seeds that I have grown already and started up some new ones. "A true success story" 'Farmer John"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work good When I first bought super Growing Pellets my wife said I spent to much money. Afterwards She said we need to get some more. The whole XLEco-Friendly Ultimate Growing System works quite well and the plants are healthy and hardy for transplant. Arnold

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Refill for X L seed starter I have been using the XL seed starting kit for three seasons. I was to happy to see Burpee was selling the refills for them. All I did was add a little warm water and I had the perfect medium for starting another crop of seeds. I started over 300 plants this spring and did not loose a single one. It is great to be able to plant what I want instead of having to just settle for what I can find. I will buy these again next year.
