How do I use the self-watering seed starting tray?

Step 1: Place the plant stands in the tray.

Step 2: Place the self-watering mat on top of the plant stands. Make sure to tuck the edges of the mat, so both edges are touching the bottom of the tray.

Step 3: Place the planting trays on top of the mat.

Step 4: Slowly add warm water to the coir pellets to have them expand.

Step 5: Let the pellets soak for a few minutes. Loosen the soil evenly using the wooden tool or your fingers.

Step 6: Sow your seeds.

Step 7: Cover the trays with the dome until half of the seedlings germinate.

Add water directly to the tray as needed.
