My one complaint about these new seed-starting trays is that it is very difficult to check the water level of the garden when they're in place. Other than that, I've found they work superbly well at getting most seeds to germinate (my only failures were probably because of the age of the seed). Once the roots begin to grow out of the sponge, it's easy to pop the sponge out of the tray and drop it into a pod to place in another aerogarden, or plant the seedling in a pot or the ground. I've also successfully used one of these trays to grow lettuce and baby greens in the cut-and-come-again method. If you're interested in starting cuttings from thin-stemmed plants, I'd recommend cutting the sponge open at an angle rather than towards the hole in the center. After I dip the cutting in rooting hormone and lay it inside the sponge, I also put a tiny rubber band around the sponge to make sure it continues to press tightly against the plant stem. Once roots have begun to develop I can cut the rubber band off. The heavy plastic trays fit solidly in the aerogardens and are easier to sanitize than the old styrofoam trays; it's also easy to cover over holes you aren't going to use. I do keep one hole open so I can add water without disturbing any of the plants! (Posted over a month ago)

This is a much-needed upgrade to the old styrofoam tray, which although it worked, was somewhat awkward in fit and finish. Over time the foam erodes, gets stained, and when cleaned with bleach is still hard to get algae, etc out of the pores.

The fit and finish of the plastic tray is fabulous. The tines at the bottom of each hole hold the growing media in place as it swells with water. The new media itself is also good. A starter hole for the seed has been located in the center, which makes it easy to push the seeds down into the media with a pencil.

One aspect I am puzzled by is the designer did not leave a water fill hole!? This means that if all planter spots are occupied, it becomes necessary to remove the top to refill the water reservoir. I have been leaving one hole empty through which I can top off the water using a funnel.
