  1. iampnwbelle

    These are great trays for growing microgreens. Durable, high quality. Recommend with enthusiasm.

  2. thomas.witwicki

    These sturdy germination trays are great for large seeded microgreens, especially now that solid bottom trays are available to fit them. I’ve also used them in the seedling house to hold large potted veggies such as tomatoes and eggplant. It’s a perfect fit for eight 6″ pots and the trays are rugged enough to manage the weight of the large pots.

  3. Nathon Hall

    These are very sturdy trays that should last many years. I like the lifting cutout amidships, it helps the handling.

  4. Siok Hong Chen-Sabot

    Love the newer version of Paperpot trays. They are a bit deeper, softer in the material and still looked good after six months. The holes are spaced wider than the previous lot I purchased and it worked just as well. They are manufactured well making stacking them nice. It is worth pay for high quality trays. I have 40 trays. I stack an empty tray in between germination tray allowing roots to dangle and not penetrate the tray below.

  5. Jono Gaza

    Best trays I have used. I was tired of the flimsy 10/20 trays that lasted for a few weeks and then start to crack. These trays are durable and I love the extra space for my micro greens. I haven’t used the paperpot transplanter yet, but am excited to see how much easier life is with that system. Overall, a great product.

  6. Jacobie

    These trays are excellent! Way more sturdy than all the other pots I’ve seen and used. I can wait to buy the bottom trays soon so I can grow even more.

  7. Ryan

    Solid trays, strong and flexible. I like the additional design touches over the standard PP trays. Also feel like they would be less prone to cracking.

  8. Mark DeRespinis

    These trays are extremely strong and allow for much more confident moving of full wet trays. I also love the handles which make the carrying of stacks of trays much easier. I’m building up my stock one big order at a time.

  9. Simon

    You won’t find a tray more sturdy than this. These will last thru your children’s life times.

  10. Patrick mortenson

    crazy durable. i dont see these things ever breaking. quick shipment.

  11. Travis brewer

    Love these trays. Super strong. The holes in the bottom work great with drainage but can be a little bit of a challenge with stacking during germination. They will grow up into the other trays and the roots will grow down into the trays under them. With that being said, it just takes a little practice to time it right to unstack them. They are for sure the best trays out there!

  12. Ed

    Very solid trays. Looking forward to using them now that all my cheap ones are cracked, destroyed and gone

  13. KW

    I’ve been using these trays for a year and a half, and found the quality to be excellent. They are also easy to clean

  14. Ken

    I just started growing microgreens with these highly durable trays (with holes). I initially use another tray on top during germination. These are worth the extra money as I expect they will last for many years of use.

  15. Ryan

    Great product! I initial started with generic 1020 flats which cracked after the first use. Not only is this product super durable and flexible, I have found the bottom watering has helped with my yield and over/under watering. It is easy to gauge when my microgreens are in need of water or not just by simply lifting the tray. This product in conjunction with the bottom tray is a must have in my operation.

  16. L Farkas

    We went through a lot of other trays before we found these. We grow a lot of barley fodder, and these trays really hold up.

  17. Wendy Baroli

    I have spend 1000s of dollars with plastic trays that eventually crack- break- and are flimsy and result in spilled plants and frustration.

    Even if you didn’t use the incredible paper pot system ( which is worth it to anyone who grows a min of 25 ft rows ) just as trays to move pots and plants! Worth every cent- in fact you save money because they can be used over and over and over!

  18. Alan Seiler

    Seems to be a good quality tray. It has fewer holes in it then the other paper pot trays I have purchased in the past. I don’t know if that is a good thing or bad thing yet. It seems like it should be an improvement because the roots of the plants grow through the wholes and can make it tricky to get them out. Thus fewer whole maybe fewer chances of roots holding to the bottom of the tray.

  19. Heather Daerr

    LOVE these trays! They are solid, strong, and intelligently designed. Having these trays cuts down on work and mess. Excellent!

  20. Winslow

    Love ’em – super durable, can’t wait to put them to the test this season.

  21. Mike Creedy

    Fabulous product. I follow a system of soil sowing, stacking 6 trays high, destack, spritz, leave in dark, remove to light after bottom watering. Trays have finger size cutouts on all sides in the middle, which allows lifting to check for water. The bottom solid tray is then removed to allow air pruning. We have NEVER had mold using the trays and following a rigid practice. Really stunning.
    Harvesting is a joke. We made a stand (like easel) to let the tray stand at about 45° and use a mechanical hedge cutter. (One hand behind the back). About 30 seconds to harvest. Air pruning makes tray cleaning a pleasure.
    Try all above using flimsy products. Good luck!
    Very durable, strong and a well designed system. Most grateful to you for offering your ideas and experience to the market place. Wishing you the best of luck.

  22. Catherine Revell

    This tray took some adjustments after being use to the 1020 size but I keep finding cool features. They stack like a dream and putting a flat under and over a germination tray will lock it down in the perfect “dome” scenerio. Just be sure that if you’re going to move a loaded tray, do it BEFORE you water or mist because the water in the bottom tray will slop out onto the floor…since the sides are so short. These trays are built to last and are sleek and well designed. I ordered a ton of them so that’s saying something!

  23. Casey Steinberg

    Solid trays with good drainage. These will last us a long time!

  24. Ryan R Porter

    I absolutely love these trays! I grow micro-greens and was looking for a sustainable solution the the other trays on the market. While other trays I would expect to get just a few cycles out of or even quad thick trays which if handled lightly could get up to 20 cycles per tray; these trays I see being around for many years. I can literally bend one in half (not easily as they are strong) and it will pop back to shape like it never even happened. I’m happy to pay $6 per tray for quality that will last rather than quad thicks for $3. Twice the price for 5+ times more life-time-cycles. Also, they present well for vendors.

  25. Joshua Davenport

    These trays are the best! I hate plastic products that quickly deteriorate and I wanted something that could work for both micro-greens and soil blocks. These are perfect for that. Yes, they are priced much higher (mostly if buying just a pack of 10 like I did) and like others have said, the size of them takes adjustment, but it’s so worth it. Their durability and thoughtful design will more than make up for it.

  26. Lissa

    Super solid trays that do the job! Love that these trays are so durable. Great for PPT plus have heard they are good for shoots and micro greens.

  27. Tim Fordenbacher

    I bought these to grow microgreens and have not been disappointed. The holes in the bottom of the tray are perfect for air flow and bottom watering. I give this a 5 star for durability and use. The only problem I had with my first batch of growing micogreens is when I tried to stack them (4 High) my radish roots grew through the holes in the bottom and grew into the dirt underneath the tray. Second round went much better with a bottom tray in between each microgreen tray.

  28. Blake Cowling

    We grow microgreens and we just switched to these trays from using 10×20 flats. These trays are FAR superior, I maybe got 2 or 3 uses out of the old flimsy trays before they would start ripping but these trays will last you forever! They stack so nicely and the quality is unmatched. Well worth the price, we love them. PLEASE MAKE BLACKOUT COVERS FOR THESE TRAYS!

  29. Sonya Perrotti

    Trays are super-durable, and a huge improvement for pea and sunflower shoot production over 1020 trays. We use less soil to fill them and a larger yield per tray. I appreciate the reasonable price with shipping included, and quick delivery.

  30. Marie L. Lewis

    If you’re investing in trays, invest in these. They stand up to repeated use, are easy to sterilize/clean, stack beautifully, are a managable size and reasonably priced. Growing microgreens or vegetable starts takes time and attention to detail, I need a tray that will stand up to repeated use so that I’m not wasting time and money frequently replacing them. These trays are a bargain, and to my way of thinking a great investment in my small microgreens growing plans.

  31. Janna Wesselius (The Cornucopia)

    We are new users of the paper pot system and I LOVE these trays. They are durable and have a great “feel” – I don’t ever worry about getting cut like I do on standard 1020’s. Not only will it take less labor to transplant, but the overall system greatly reduces the length of the growing cycle and the amount of space needed per plant, freeing up valuable space in the greenhouse. Not to mention greatly reducing the amount of soil mix used. I will definitely be ordering more!
