Our original and most popular model, the Sixie lets you sprout 6 seedlings at a time. The approximately 1 ¼” x 1 ½” x 1 ¼” deep pocket size is appropriate for small-to-medium sized seeds: tomatoes, basil, lettuces, peppers. Larger seeds like beans and pumpkins can be sprouted in the Sixie, but quickly outgrow the space.
Refill Orta terracotta seed-starters about once a week for thriving seedlings. The porous walls of the seed pockets wick water from the inner reservoir into the soil, keeping seedlings evenly moist and happy, even if you ignore them a little! When it’s time to transplant, seedlings pop out easily.
Because all our pots are handmade, expect some variation in the surface of each seed-starter.
