Thanks.  I forwarded this to my gardening SILs.  One of them in the past has not had her pepper plants germinate so it will be interesting to get her reaction.

I have already heard back from one of my SILs and she is going to try it with tomato seeds.

Just remember that I am only the messenger so if it doesn’t work out for the tomatoes…

I actually splurged on a genuine, authentic germination mat just a few days ago. I expect the seed tray fits the mat better than it would my IP... :P
