Why Use Pelleted Seeds in Hydroponics?

It’s a “Seed to Salad” Blog, so let’s begin with my favorite type of seed. No, it’s not a type of vegetable or flower, but it’s the type of seed that saves me a lot of time when germinating seeds for my hydroponics system.

A pelleted seed is a seed that is coated with an inert, organic material such as clay.

Seeds are pelleted by tumbling them with the coating materials and gradually adding moisture. Once the pellet coating reaches the desired size, the pelleted seeds are cured (dried).

Pelleted seeds…

  • Are easier to plant & manage
  • Have a higher germination rate
  • Are less likely to mold or rot in a hydroponic system
  • Are big enough for you to find them

And, pelleted seeds are just more fun–especially with criss-cross tweezers!
