You will have dozens, and dozens of seedlings sprout beautifully in these square domes. The coco plugs and the grow plugs work well here. You can also fill up these cells with natural soil, or soilless mixtures, and still have a great germination story to tell. Cuttings work well too.
All excess water can drain into the impermeable tray for easy and clean disposal.
Among the other requirements for germination include the right temperature, and the seedling mat provides just that. Always worrying about having the ambient temperature for germination is a concern of the past with this heating mat.
The heating mat has been tried and tested, engineered and re-engineered to produce the most efficient product of its type on the market. It has a thick heating wire sandwiched between layers and layers of durable conducting fabric for uniform heating and longevity.
The humidity dome works together with the heating mat and seedling cells to enhance and maintain germination. The dome is equipped with three vents to keep the delicate balance between heat and humidity.
