|I have a whole host of germinating seeds at the moment. The little pots below are called jiffy coco pots because they are made of coconut fibre. I purchased them compressed, then I soaked them in warm water for 10 minutes. After they expanded, I planted Tabasco chili seeds in them.
When the seedlings become mature little plants, I will place the whole tiny pot into soil, the outer layer will dissolve and the plant will snuggle into its new home with the minimum of fuss. This replaces the need for transplanting, and root shock.
