Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective way of watering small container plants I like the shape and ease of inserting the wick into the container to grow the WF plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product did not perform as expected. I thought this would be an easy way to keep cells watered as I was using it in a program where the plants could not be monitored daily. However, after 24 hours, only the first couple of inches of the felt had absorbed any water. The soil in the cells was bone dry. I also felt a bit foolish when I received the kit. It's nothing more than a Sterlite shoe tote with a piece of felt cut to fit-certainly something any teacher could make themselves. I would suggest that a material with better absorption capability might remedy the problem although I haven't tried it yet. Perhaps cheesecloth or 100% cotton? Based on my experience, I would advise you not waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great setup for growing - self watering after few days. I love these. It's so worth it to not worry about plants or seeds drying out over the weekend. Wrapping the boxes in foil does help stop algae growth nicely. Extra water mats make nice skid pads you slide the water boxes without having the foil mark up your counter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was good. But once you rinse in soap water during the setup, it kinda shrinks and doesn't fit the entire watering tray. I wish it was wide enough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! This is a very useful tool for growing plants in the classroom. I didn't use these at first, because I thought I could get away without paying for them. However, our school had an unexpected 3 day weekend and our plants soaked up all of the water and then dried out! Now we are starting over again - but this time, we are using these mats!
