The green bottom water and drip tray, designed to water your plants and seeds
Do you want to easily, quickly, and efficiently water without creating a mess? Well, we’ve got you covered with this Green Bottom Water and drip Tray.

But maybe you ask yourself, why should I bottom-water my seeds and seedlings? When you water from above, you do not only risk washing away your seeds or drowning or snapping your tender seedlings. Watering from below also promotes root growth and ensures that every bit of soil in those cells gets properly hydrated. Say goodbye to that frustrating scenario where you think you water your seedlings, but in reality, the topsoil is wet, but the rest is bone dry.

But the water tray has more to offer you! Most likely you grow your seedlings in a windowsill. Watering plants indoors can be a nightmare. That’s why the green tray doubles as a drip tray. It catches any excess water that drips out of your propagation or module trays, keeping your windowsill or workspace clean and organized. No more messy spills or water damage!

You don’t have to worry about product dimensions. The module trays and green water tray are designed to fit together.

Here is a list of all the seed trays that are designed for the green bottom water and drip tray:
77-cell seed tray and 77-cell deep seed tray
Charles Dowding 60-cell seed tray
40-cell seed tray and 40-cell deep seed tray
28-cell seed tray and 28-cell deep seed tray
15-cell seed tray and 15-cell deep seed tray
or any other 35 × 21 centimeters size propagation module tray. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to contact customer service!

  • Watering your seedlings becomes very efficient and a lot less time-consuming. you can even take a few days off without worrying your seedlings will dry out.
  • The raised edges (rims) on the inside allow for proper water access to the cells
  • The Raised edges also provide airflow to air-prune roots when the green bottom water and drip tray is not filled with water. This will result in those recognizable strong-rooted seedlings

  • Designed with a matching transparent lid to create a propagator

How to use the drip and bottom water tray:
To give your plants and seedlings a good soak, fill the green tray with water until it’s above the inner edges. Pop your seed tray on top and keep adding water until you notice no more changes in the water level or your seed tray feels heavy. Remove the tray, empty the Green Bottom Water Tray, and place your tray of happy plants back on top. Easy peasy, right? Just remember, if you leave the water in there, your plants might start growing roots inside the green tray, and we want them to air-prune instead.

If you like to use the green tray in combination with the transparent lid you secure the lid by pushing both sides of the green tray inwards.

A few things to keep in mind before you purchase this product:

  • The propagation module tray in the pictures is not included
  • CD15 tray & CD30 tray and HR10 tray & HR20 seed trays have different outer dimensions (and are not designed for the water tray). However, you can fit 1x CD30 or 1x HR20 on the green water and drip tray but they do not fit perfectly and can be slightly tilted. However, some gardeners do use this combination. Matching bottom water and drip trays for the CD30, CD15, HR10 and HR20 can be found here
  • The 28XL propagation module tray is almost 3x bigger than our standard-size seed trays and can therefore not be combined with the water and drip tray

CD 60 seed tray and drip tray

Rated 5.0 out of 5

The CD 60 seed trays are very sturdy and conveniently sized. I find it a great advantage that you can easily carry them with 1 hand. The drip tray fits them perfectly and makes indoor watering easier. I also included the book No dig by Charles Dowding with this order. Definitely recommended if you are interested in no dig and easier gardening.

I start my seedlings indoors in my sunroom. This year I have more space to grow due to the compact and sturdy seed trays and the water reservoirs. Went on holiday for 4 days and was able to add water to the bottom of the trays and didn’t kill my plants. Everything is growing along beautifully now that we have some sun here in NL. Great communication and nice to order from a sustainable conscious company.


Solid seed trays with super fine drip tray

Finally grow trays that I can use for years. No drain pan/under tray that breaks or is too floppy. The bottom trays have partitions on which the grow box stands. This allows excess moisture to drain away. The size is nice. But also the choice of size of cells and depth. So far very positive.
