So I just bought a 72 pack pellet tray for my Bird of paradise’s and was wondering if they would be acceptable for starting CPs? They are peat based Idk if they contain fertilizer though.

I would guess most likely it would be fine. I would wet one let it uncompressed squeeze it out into a container to check the TDS.

I've pondered getting those for seedlings. Maybe I'll try it.

I'm curious about the pH of the peat pellets. Seems that something used to grow flowers and maybe vegetables would have a neutral or slightly acidic pH, maybe around pH6.5. But, 100% peat moss should be much more acidic, probably pH3.0-4.0.
