5x5 Grow Trays - Extra Strength Inserts


Guaranteed to not warp or break.  These extra strength BPA free 5x5 inserts are perfect for smaller batches of microgreens, wheatgrass and other crops.  Our trays are made of heavy duty, recycled, food grade, polypropylene plastic. 

Made for anyone that wants to use their trays more than once.  Our trays are built to be used for many years to come.  Why throw away your trays after a single use?  Save yourself time and money by reusing your trays which will keep both your pockets and the earth green.

These 5" x 5" inserts can be used indoors or outdoors and with both soil and hydroponic applications. Six drainage slits are used for both removing excess water and allowing for use with flood trays.

Designed to be used with our 1020 flats and seed trays. Eight of the 5x5 trays fit into one standard 1020. 

*Please note: These do not fit well in our 1010 trays. The 5x5s are designed to fit eight within a 1020 tray. Since our 1010 trays are designed to fit two into a 1020 they are slightly smaller and do not fit four 5x5 trays precisely. We recommend using trays of the same depth when nesting trays.

Ask a Question
  • Is the 5x5 tray BPA free?

    The 5x5 are BPA free!

  • Are these trays made in the USA or Imported?

    We are in the process of getting these manufactured here in the US. Our current stock is imported. We expect to have the new USA made 5x5 trays available in a few moths.

  • If we wanted to provide these at say a farmers market planted and for purchase, do you have a recommendation for a tray to use under a single 5x5 that the customer could also purchase?

    5X5 trays are the smallest trays we manufacture. This is also the most common product that is used in your type of situation.

  • Can you run these through the dishwasher? I have your heavy duty 1020 trays and humidity domes, but I have always used the light disposable trays inside so I don't have to clean them. I like to use these for seed starting for my flower + veggie market garden, so less heavy use than microgreen production.

    You can run the 1020 trays through the dishwasher.  They should be placed on the top rack with the heat cycle turned off if possible.  Our shallow 2.5" domes would be ok in the dishwasher but our 6.5" tall ones I would advice against it.

  • Am I correct to assume four 2.5 x 2.5 seed starter pots would fit nicely in this 5x5 growing tray? Looking to use humidity domes on smaller than a 1020 scale, and this seemed like a good solution as long as the 2.5 x 2.5 pots will fit correctly.

    The 2.5 inch pots are designed to fit in the 1020 trays.  I don't believe you will get 4 of the 2.5" pots in a 5x5 tray.

  • Any chance to get these 5x5 trays at a 1 inch height in the near future?

    That is at the top of our list for new tray products.
