In the past, I've tried peat pots, the puff-up peat tablets, the cheap flimsy trays for doing starts.
Peat pots don't really let the roots through. The tablet things are a recurring cost (so are the peat pots, but I made the mistake of buying a big case of them)
I want to invest in something that will last.
I see a couple of options:
- Block makers. I like the idea of easy step-ups.
- Air pruning trays.
- Rootmaker, speedling, star shaped (no brand)
- I'm trying hydroponic pots. They work OK if I cut out the solid circle on the bottom, and enables me to push the seedling out.
What are the trade-offs? The block makers have good reviews in other questions, but I haven't seen much mention of the fancier, air-pruning, trays.
