I’m a huge fan of #peatpots but these Ramini Brands Plant Gsermination Pots have made me an even bigger fan of them and here is why. First off I use these – and have for years – for planting seeds of plants such as Theobroma cacao that resent root disturbance. I grow a lot of tropical plants that are like that. When you invest in the seeds of these plants you don’t want to go to all the trouble of germinating the seed just to lose the plant during transplanting – and that is where these plant germination pots really shine.
The first thing I noticed was how quickly these #peatpots absorb water. I always start with wet seed starting mix. Moisture is essential to seed germination. The pot absorbing water is also important as if the pot does not absorb water correctly, it will wick water away from the seed or seedling. This results in the seed either not germinating or the seed or seedling dying. So when it comes to water absorption these are the best I have come across.
They were sturdy when they were dry but be careful handling them wet – this is true of most #peatpots of this style. Even after a month of using them to start seeds they are doing quite well – and the seedlings are thriving. They have not fallen apart yet – and I am glad of this because I am not quite ready to plant. For those who have not started their garden seeds yet, it is not too late. Pick up some of these #peatpots, pick up some organic garden seeds and organic seed starting mix today. Plant your seeds tonight and I am sure by the time the last frost is over – at least her in Indiana – your seedlings are going to be ready to plant out.
