Almost any container that has drainage and can hold at least a quarter of a cup of potting mix can be used to start seedlings. Egg cartons are not appropriate. Some of the more popular commercial containers used for starting seeds are Peat Pots and small peat disks called "Jiffy 7's".

Ideal for starting your seeds indoors! Just put a few seeds in each pellet and add water. Each pellet has its own compartment. All you have to do is put the dome lid on top and you have ideal temperature and climate settings to propagate your seedlings! The peat pellets expand into a self contained soil container held together thin netting. (drop)the netted container directly into the ground or planter pot. No mess, no fuss. This is the best and easiest way to start plants early.

It's what's NOT in the DOT Pot that makes it better!
Unlike glued peat moss pots, biodegradable DOT Pots are made from all natural wood fibers, 80% spruce fibers and 20% peat moss and nothing else! DOT Pots contain zero glues or binders -- allowing the plant roots to grow right through the pot during a normal production cycle. The plant's growth is not impeded by the walls of the pot. This creates a vigorous, non-girdled root system that spreads out evenly and uniformly.
Air pruning is taken to a whole new level.
The highly porous technology of the DOT Pots allows us to exclude one more ingredient from the DOT Pot -- drain holes. Without glue or binders, air and water flow freely through the entire container without the need for drain holes. Why reduce air pruning to a few dime-sized holes or narrow slots? DOT Pots achieve even air pruning along the entire container surface. Not only are DOT Pots 100% biodegradable, but they are 100% OMRI Listed® as well. Now you can forget about the plastic waste and the disposal hassles of traditional plastic containers. When you plant a DOT Pot, both you and Mother Nature will be smiling.
You will receive 60 organic, biodegradable pots, size 2" x 2" x 2". They are in 3 strips of 20 pots.
Seed Starter Soil Block Maker Makes 4 Medium Blocks
- Make your own seed-starting blocks.
- Seedlings are stronger than using peat pots
- Increased oxygen to the roots for a healither plant
Easy to use. Moisten soil mix such as Johnny's 512, push block maker down, turn, squeeze, and lift. Set filled block maker into a tray and release. Makes 2" square blocks for all vegetables, large-seeded flowers and herbs. Includes standard dibbles that make small depressions in the tops of soil blocks for seeds. Can also be fitted with optional Long Dibbles for large seeds or cuttings or 3/4" Square Dibbles to receive mini blocks. A soil block is a block of growing medium that has been lightly compressed and shaped by a form. A soil block serves as both a container and the soil for starting and growing seedlings, eliminating the need for plastic pots and trays for transplanted seedlings. Seedlings grown in soil blocks form stronger root systems than those grown in containers due to increased oxygen to the roots and the soil block's natural tendency to "prune" roots. This creates a substantial advantage when seedlings are transplanted into the field, because plants establish themselves more quickly and, because of lessened root disruption, they are less prone to transplant shock. The key to making good soil blocks is to use a mix containing the correct proportions of peat, compost, soil, and sand or perlite. A "blocking" mix needs extra fibrous material-peat-to bind the material together and help the block retain moisture. Some commercially available peat-lite mixes may work but often contain wetting agents and/or fertilizers that make it unsuitable for organic use.
