      Ask a Question
      • how many trays are in a pack?

        We have 1, 5, 10, 25 and 60 packs available.  There is a drop down to the left of the "add to cart" button with the different sizes available with prices of each pack below.

      • Does the drainage flat sit in the solid flat so it is directly on the bottom (rather than being slightly suspended as some do), and/or vice versa? Also, will you have 128's in stock soon? Thanks!

        Our trays are suspended off the bottom of the drainage flat.  We find this advantageous since it allows your roots to get more oxygen and your roots will stretch down toward the water as they become more developed.  However we currently are in the process of creating a micro green flat tray that is shorter than our existing flat which would allow for the cells to sit directly on the bottom.

        Regarding out 128 Cell trays we should have more available the first week in March.

        Thanks for reaching out!

      • Do you have an updated ETA on the 10 x 10 trays?

        All our 1010 trays should be in stock.  Here are our 1010 trays with holes: https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/products/1010-tray-with-holes and our 1010 trays no holes https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/products/1010-tray-no-holes

      • How come oasis cubes and Rockwool sheets don’t fit insides these or your heavy duty 1020 trays without having tho be cut down? Would it be the same issue with your shallow trays as well?

        Yes it would be the same fit with the shallow trays as well since they are 1020's too.  When we designed our trays we knew that they wouldn't be able to fit perfectly with every brand so we surveyed some of our farmer friends to come up with the size that was most commonly used.  It would be nice to have a universal tray though :)

      • Do you have 10x10 trays with the mesh bottom?

        Not quite yet!  They are in production now and we should hopefully have them in 2.5 months or so.

      • If I want to grow high density lettuce straight into dirt indoors, would I be able to use the 1020 TRAY WITH HOLES - SOIL BLOCK PROPAGATION TRAYS in combination with the regular 1020 tray to bottom water? Or would the soil propagation tray be too shallow?

        Yes our 1020 Trays with Mesh holes will fit into our 1020 trays with no holes and work well for bottom watering. 

      • May I know where are your mesh trays made? Thank you!

        Hello! Our mesh trays are made in the USA. You can find a list of our USA made products here: https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/collections/usa-made-products
