These Ellepots boast the largest diameter cell of any tray that we carry. They are best used for plants that need a little extra room for either leaf structure or root development. Great for seed production, 50-cell Ellepot trays are a must have for producers of succulents, vegetable seeds, rex begonias, and many other plants that need the larger space.
We're excited to be able to offer Ellepots to other growers who wish to buy online directly from our website. These custom Ellepots are made on site, year round. Our 50-count tray uses 40 mm ellepots

which uses a 30 mm Ellepot.

Like all blended potting media, the peat moss in this soil sometimes grows a harmless gray mold (Trichoderma sp.). While this mold is unsightly, it is harmless and has actually been reported to have beneficial aspects for plant growth. It can be cleaned up with fungicide or plant-safe disinfectant. However, most growers just ignore it as it will usually die off naturally.
