While walking the aisles in Home Depot last week, I stumbled into the garden department and found this gem on the shelf.
This purportedly takes Jiffy Pucks or any other type of small rooting plug to the next level by including a self watering mechanism.
Basically there is a tray with 34 germination pucks, which is about 9 more than their usual mini garden type product has. There is a plastic insert around which you wrap the watering fabric, on top of which you place the tray containing the dry pucks. fill the reservoir below the fabric, it gets soaked and wicks the water into the pucks which expand mightily!
There is no instruction as to how much water you should use, i guess they assume you won’t over fill. Yeah, well we know how that can go. We let the puck soak over night and all but one of them expanded completely.
MonkeyBoyKush regulars 7/8 sprouted; Bodhi’s NL#5 regs. 8/8 popped; 5 HSO Master Kush 4/5; R-Kiem Seeds Icer 5/5; Holy Smoke Seeds 6/6; SensiSeeds Skunk #1, 9/9; (we had a few pucks on the side, hence the extras)
Clearly the product works but other than the nice plastic base and dome, i think this is a gimmick. Just give us a tray with pucks and water — if you learn your plant, you will monitor and know when it needs more water. Vigilance is very important.
We were happy with the result but wouldn’t necessarily recommend this product. Too gimmicky.
