Netted Coir Pellets is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing grew in the pellets They initially grew a fine layer of mold which I ended up scrapping off. A few seeds sprouted but eventually died. I started some other pellets made from peet moss and they grew great. I am not sure if the coconut fibersimpeded the growing. I was very disappointed with the growing pellets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient and easy I have now purchased these multiple times and have been very pleased. They hold together from seed insertion to transplant and they don't drown the seeds with water retention like others do. They are so easy and don't require any thought at all! The only advice I would give with transplanting is you snip the netting on the side before you put it in the dirt. Sometimes it doesn't dissolve and the plants can be damaged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Decent Coir Pellets I've used these for several seasons since they were the type included in the 10-pellet self watering tray and dome (42mm). They work well for me, but I use fairly HOT water, and they do expand rapidly. Start to finish maybe 10 minutes. The coir in these is coarse, and that is a good thing, since fine material tends to stay way too wet. These don't, and using a heat mat, I get tomato germination in 5-6 days. Eggplant and peppers a few days longer. And they grow well, especially since I combine with bottom heat. The netting is a pain, but better than most since the top and bottom are completely open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best alternative For many years I used peat pellets almost exclusively with mostly good results. A couple of years ago I began trying coir pellets and now use them almost exclusively. They have several benefits over peat: 1. They have a coarser more open texture. 2. Because of the open texture, they are less likely to encourage mold and fungus. Experienced growers are moving toward coir. For potting I continue to use mostly peat for economic reasons, but the coir seed starting pellets are worth trying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 50% germination rate I will not buy or use these again. Seeds planted in these pellets had a 50% germination rate. Seedlings were weak and spindly. Seeds from the same packet planted in potting soil had a 100% germination rate and are strong and healthy. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I have used these for several years, with great success. Almost everything (both vegetable and flower seeds) has germinated, and they are easy and convenient. However, what I like the best is how easy it is to transplant into a larger container -- just pick up the pellet with the seedling and pop it into its new home. I had used seed starting mix and trays in the past, and found that if the seedling roots were not yet densely packed, the whole plant crumbled and fell apart when trying to transplant. That is NOT a problem with the coir pellets, and I will continue to use them year after year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh. They're ok. These worked quite well, but they were very crumbly. The filling would fall out every time I watered it seemed.
