Tired of cheap plastic trays that keep breaking?


Invest in a tray that will last a lifetime...seriously!


You'll have to try to break these trays.  They won't break during normal use.


Epic 6-Cell Trays are rigid, yet flexible. They’re practically unbreakable and should last you the rest of your life.


These heavy-duty trays are proudly made in the USA from recycled, UV-treated, BPA-free, food-grade plastic. It's #5 plastic, or polypropylene.

Engineered for Perfect Plant Growth


Each individual cell in our Epic 6-Cell Trays features an air pruning side slot on all four corners to discourage root circling and encourage better root growth.  The bottoms of each cell are also open providing air pruning at the lower end of each cell.  


Convenient and Flexible


12 Epic 6-Cell Trays are designed to fit perfectly into a standard 1020 nursery tray, mimicking a classic 72-cell tray.


This design gives you the convenience of having all of your seedlings in one tray. At the same time, you can easily remove a single Epic 6-Cell Tray at a time as seedlings mature, without having to prick out individual seedlings like you would with a standard cell insert tray.


Designed With The Gardener in Mind


Large, convenient finger holes in the bottom of each cell make it easy to remove seedlings when you're ready to transplant.  No more using a knife or tool to remove your plants; simply push the seedling out with your finger.

How to use?

How To Use Epic Starter Cells


  1. Fill your Epic Starter Cells with a seed-starting mix, and add just enough water to moisten the soil, but not waterlog it.

  2. Dig a small hole with your finger, a pencil, or a chopstick. Ensure the hole depth is not more than 3x the width of the seed.

  3. Drop your seeds in and lightly cover them with starting mix.

  4. Add a light misting of water from a spray bottle, or just enough to moisten the seeds.

  5. If you have some plastic wrap handy, loosely drape it over the top of the pot to promote high humidity conditions that seeds love. Poke 3-5 holes in the top of the plastic wrap for ventilation. Or use a specialized dome cover.

  6. Place your cells on a sunny windowsill or under a grow light, and keep the soil moist as the seeds begin to germinate. Once sprouts come up, remove the plastic wrap or dome cover.

  7. Keep the healthiest seedling and remove extras with a pair of scissors, being careful not to damage the healthy seedling.

  8. Continue to keep the soil moist as your plant grows. When it’s 3 to 4 inches tall, easily pop out your starts and transplant them in the garden.


Cleaning Your Epic Starter Cells


We recommend hand-washing with hot, soapy water as the best way to keep the material in good shape for years of use. A good dish detergent should sterilize the trays enough to protect seedlings.
