A seedling tray is a container designed for holding soil and seeds during the early stages of plant growth. There are several types of seedling trays available:
Solid: a solid-bottomed tray that provides a stable base for the seedlings to grow in. These trays are suitable for use with a variety of growing media and are often used in greenhouse or indoor growing environments.
Lattice: a tray with a lattice bottom that allows for improved drainage and air circulation around the roots of the plants. These trays are ideal for hydroponic or aeroponic growing systems.
Grated: a tray with a grated bottom that allows excess water to drain away easily while still providing support for the seedlings. These trays are often used in hydroponic or aeroponic systems.
Dome: a tray with a clear plastic dome that fits over the top to create a mini greenhouse environment. These trays are ideal for starting seeds and promoting healthy growth in the early stages.
Seedling trays come in various sizes and can be made from plastic, metal, or other materials. They are commonly used in commercial nurseries and for home gardening.
