Our collection of Extra Strength seedling trays and humidity domes are exclusively sold and designed by Bootstrap Farmer.
We have always been disappointed with the brittle and flimsy quality of seed trays and domes found in big box stores and online. Our dissatisfaction led us to produce our own seedlings trays that could withstand abuse and transportation even while filled with material. No longer do you need to buy new trays each season saving you time and frustration with our seedling trays.
They are a great way to grow with soil blocks, rockwool cubes, fodder, micro-greens, or wheatgrass.
Keep moisture in with our extra strength humidity dome with included vents to control air flow.

I want to grow fodder from barley (or wheat berry) indoors during winter, without soil. Im new to all this... Would I use the "MICROGREEN TRAY HOBBY STARTER" or the "SEED STARTER KIT". thanks

I purchased one of these kits over the winter and am getting ready to try growing annuals from seeds for the first time. While researching, I've seen some systems use a flat sponge-like sheet for holding water. Is this necessary? Also, what is the recommended level to fill the water? Thanks!
Rockwool cubes? You can certainly use those. They work very well, especially for beginners. Alternatively, you can use you a soil or potting mix to start your seeds. Best to put a 1/2" of water on the bottom and use the dome to retain the humidity. Without the dome, you can also fill the bottom tray with water just so it touches the bottom cells, wicking up the water. In order to avoid over saturation, a little air blowing in the room is using good propagation practice. If you want to avoid using the dome at any point and also want to avoid lots of water, just be sure to mist your seedlings a few times a day. Hope this helps!
Can I use a heat pad under this? I'm starting seeds in a fully-enclosed, but unheated utility room. Typically I only see heat pads underneath trays that don't utilize a water bed underneath - so I don't want to heat just the water and encourage mold growth around the roots. Maybe I should just use a grow light instead? (asked on Amazon, too - sorry to duplicate!)
Yes you can absolutely use a heat pad under these trays even with a water bed. We do this exact same thing when we grow our seedlings with great success.
I want to grow micro greens - what is the best set up for me to buy? Preferable with nothing but the seeds.
Most poeple just need a set of the microgreen trays with hole and microgreen trays with no holes. https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/products/microgreen-trays
