Excellent video, Kai.  I can't wait to try the Rootmaker pots.

I never used them myself. Just an interesting item of note.

I hear plain old river sand/construction sand works very well if you mix it with peat moss.

I also heard that coating seeds with M.F. (Mykos is one brand) can speed up things a bit.
And seed abrasion can help too.
