Every year, I try and start plants in those little peat pots. Our house does not receive a lot of natural sunlight therefore I put the potted seeds on a shelf in the kitchen which has a light alongside of it. The seeds did grow but they were tall and spindly. I had seen this mini greenhouse advertised and thought I might try it out for the heck of it. To my amazement, my plants grew very well in this portable hot house. Now when I put them in the ground is another story. Most of them did well but a few did die on me.

This hot house growing system gives seedlings a warm, moist environment for a strong start. Gentle warmth is also provided to the planting bed and roots grow much better. There is a high dome on the product which allows for controlled humidity. I found it very easy to set the entire system up. All I had to do was cut the plastic in the designated areas for the desired level of humidity control. I then filled the 72 cell tray with a quality potting soil. After sowing my seeds, I plugged the matt in, put the tray on the mat, watered the seeds to the required amount of moisture, and finally covered the tray with the plastic top. Now all I did was sit back and watched my seeds grow. I had a good amount of sturdy plants to replant in my garden last spring. Try it out, it really does work.
