This little kit was really fun to use. I've never seen peat pellets before and I now wonder how I missed out on such a great thing. They are so cool! I put 5 of them in the bottom of my planter box, like this.
Then I poured water on them and they grew like magic! They filled up the entire planter box with really nice peat. I had to take this picture after dumping just one cup of water on them because I was so impressed by how quickly they grew. They reminded me of those little snake fireworks that you put on the sidewalk and light.
Both planter boxes fit perfectly in my window sill. Now I just have to wait 7-10 days for them to sprout and start growing. I hope it works and I can't wait. It's a fun little experiment. :)
