Germination Mat

Our germination mat takes the guesswork out of watering. Simply soak the all-natural fiber pad, place it in the bottom of a planter and fill with soil and plants or seeds. The soil will wick water directly up to plant roots as they need it, resulting in optimum growing conditions. Thoroughly soak your planter occasionally thereafter to keep the mat saturated. All-natural Kenaf plant fiber and FDA-approved binder. May be cut to desired size to custom-fit traditional and vertical planters. When saturated, the mat provides a steady supply of water to plant roots. Keeps soil evenly moist and reduces evaporation. One 40" x 60" mat. Made in USA.

Germination Mat Holds Water!
May 19, 2014
Since I am using my new Soil Blocker cubes to grow my seeds, I( thought the Germination Mat sounded useful, since the most difficult part for me is keeping the cubes properly watered. Being unsure of how to use this product with the fairly unfamiliar cubes, I phoned the manufacturer in Minnesota and we came up with a plan for his new product where I will photo my trial, since this is a new application for both of us. Since the 3/4-inch blocks will soon be inserted into the 2-inch blocks, I decided to set the small cubes directly on a moistened piece of the mat. When it's time to drop them in the larger cubes, I will cut the blanket-sized mat to fit in the bottom of each larger cube, right before settling in the seedlings. I will share pictures with the manufacturer, as promised. I am impressed with this product.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, material, Time-saver, Size, Appearance, Versatile, Design, Assembly, Weight
Cons: new product came w/o instructions for my odd use.

Works great, easy to cut to fit!
April 17, 2014
This is a nice large mat which is easily cut to fit the size you need. It works great for germinating seeds as well as promoting growth. So far I have had greater success with starting seed since using the mat. If you do much herb or flower gardening it is a must!
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, Size, Versatile, promotes seed growth, saves time and guesswork when watering seed
