Biodegradable 3"Plantable Round Fiber Pots is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine product. I was online ordering more of these for this season and noticed the nine year year old review that mentioned mold. I didn’t have any problems with mold and these pots when I used them last year. Anytime I had mold with seedlings it was from me overwatering. The more I garden the more I learn. These pots were fine. I don’t pay much attention to such old reviews since the products will vary over a nine year time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Moldy pots! The pots are a good size (I got the large square ones) and pretty cheap. I filled them with potting soil that was moist out of the bag and then I planted the seeds. The next day, they were placed in a window with afternoon sun and watered (a Thurs). On Monday, the pots were moldy (white, fur-like)! The mold was on the side of the pots and on the tops. So far, it hasn't grown on the soil. To be fair, I did cover them loosely with plastic wrap, but it was well ventilated and I promptly removed the wrap when I noticed the mold. We did not have sunny conditions, so the pots did not have a chance to dry out (although, they were only watered once). I'm hoping when the pots dry out that the mold will die.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only good for fast growing plants I'm growing some plants indoors that are slow growing. However, I have 3 concerns about these pots. First of all, I noticed that mold or some type of white bacteria has been growing on the pots. Second, when I try to move the pots around, the side of the pot is very slimy. Third, I have noticed some white larvae of some kind is all over my pots and I'm not sure where they came from. But I do notice some good things about these pots. They hold up well after a couple of weeks. They are cheap. I would only recommend using these pots for fast growing plants like beans, but you can directly sow them into the garden anyways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from squirrel's favorite I loved the convenience of the peat pots, BUT---the squirrels loved them too. I'm container gardening, and my deck looked like a war zoon. The squirrels dig up the pots, throw dirt everywhere and destroy plants. They go after flowers and vegetables, and now dig up everything in hopes of finding a peat pot. Why are these a squirrel magnet? What can I doi to get rid of the squirrels? Does amypne have help? thanks
