Takeaway: These pellets also have a good saturation rate and don't leave any dry, hard "chunks" of peat in the middle after expanding.

Because peat is a sterile medium, I don't have to worry about soil diseases or fungus killing off my seedlings early on. If you live in a cold climate and need to start tomatoes or peppers indoors, these are a must have. I found that the pellets rehydrate more quickly when you soak them in hot water. If you use hot water, wait till they are cooled completely before planting any seeds in them! The fine netting on the outside is thin, which is good because you want the roots to be able to escape the net when these are transplanted in the ground or a larger pot. The 30mm size expands to 1.5" x 1.5" and are a compact 1.25" x 0.5" when dry. I planted a whole tray of 72 plugs last week and already many seedlings have emerged and are doing well under grow lights.

The case price for these pellets is very economical (about $0.07 a piece) and since they have a a long shelf life, I can use them over many years; just be sure to store in a cool, dry place!
