Have you already ordered a Kwik Klik™️ Drop Seeder Frame?
The Top Plate controls the number and pattern of cells in your tray (e.g., 72, 128, 264, etc.), the plate’s thickness, and the hole’s diameter. Together, these three factors determine how many seeds go into each cell in your tray.
- Number and pattern of holes. This is simply the number and pattern of cells in the tray you are seeding. The Kwik Klik works for the following types of cell trays:
- Paper Chain Pot (2-, 4-, or 6-inch lengths)
- Standard 50-, 72-, 128-, or 200-cell trays
- Microgreens – 1020 and Paperpot Germination Trays
- Winstrip trays – 72-cell and 128-cell
- Plate thickness. Thinner plates allow fewer seeds per hole. Thicker Plates enable you to put multiple seeds in each hole. Thicker plates are particularly useful when seeding microgreens.
- Hole diameter. Larger seeds require larger holes. But a larger hole and a thicker plate can be used to seed more seeds per hole. The Top Plate controls the number and pattern of cells in your tray (e.g., 72, 128, 264, etc.), the plate’s thickness, and the hole’s diameter. Together, these three factors determine how many seeds go into each cell in your tray.
These plates are compatible with air prune trays like those made by Bootstrap Farmer and Winstrip trays.
The chart below gives recommendations for Top Plates based on dropping a single seed into a single cell.
With every order of a Kwik Klik Frame, we will send you a set of three seed plate guides (one for each Top Plate thickness — 1.5mm, 3mm, and 6mm) that will allow you to experiment with your seeds and customize the trays for your needs.
