          These treads definitely do not stay in place when pets and kids are involved. I have included a picture showing the treads flipped over and moved out of place after only two hours. This was only with a cat running up and down them.
          You'll definitely need some carpet tape with some types of stairs. In my case, I have these on basement stairs. The stairs are painted with porch and floor paint with a Rustoleum Rock Solid brand flooring top coat. The treads slip right off them.
          However, with carpet tape to keep them in place, these treads are actually a good product. The carpet is well made and feels nice underfoot.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight
          Cons: needs carpet tape to stay in place

          Viagrow Pro Plugs are perfect for cuttings and germinating seeds. Derived from naturally occurring peat moss and organic materials, they are full of beneficial microbes that help to colonize roots, maximize nutrient uptake and provide the perfect air-to-water ratio for vigorous plant growth. This kit includes the Pro Plugs 50 Site Insert and a Viagrow Standard Flat. Pro Plugs are easy to use. They should be kept moist but not wet and should never be allowed to sit in water. Keep the tray covered with a humidity dome so the Pro Plugs do not dry too quickly. You may stop using the dome after the first leaves have formed on your seedlings. If supplementing natural light or using artificial light as the sole light source, we recommend using a fluorescent grow light like a T5 fluorescent. Pro Plugs are best utilized in conjunction with soil and some soilless mixes such as coco coir, Pro-Mix and other like medias.

          You know, I was pleasantly surprised with these pro-plugs. I filled all 50 plugs up with 5 different kinds of lettuce seed (from reputable sources.) I wasn't sure what the results would be, but to my surprise I started getting sprouts in only 3 days. I did not use a dome. No heat mat because it was lettuce. All I did was drop a seed in each hole and move some of the soil around to cover the hole. I am using a LED quantum board for my grow light.

          You know, I was pleasantly surprised with these pro-plugs. I filled all 50 plugs up with 5 different kinds of lettuce seed (from reputable sources.)

All I did was drop a seed in each hole and move some of the soil around to cover the hole. I am using a LED quantum board for my grow light.
          I was initially surprised because when I opened the package, the growing medium was pre-wetted and I thought that it was a little too wet honestly. One thing to keep in mind is that many people also use boiling water when they pre-moisten their soil to kill fungus gnats, but with this product you are not able to do that.
          I was worried that the pre-made hole would be too deep for lettuce seed, but it seemed to work out fine. Since the hole is already there, it makes it difficult for people who like to put multiple seeds in one seed cell.
          The product stated that it was peat moss based medium, but there was no other information about what else was in the mix. It seemed to be more than just peat moss though.
          My biggest complaint with the product is that I actually did not want to use all 50 of plugs at once, but there was no way to separate them so I just planted more than I wanted.
          Another thing is that these seed cells appear to be smaller than the standard seed starting cells so you won't be able to keep your seedlings in them as long. I included a picture showing the size difference between the other.
          Overall though, I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of use and the success with this product. If you are a new gardener, feel free to give this a tray. The price is high though so it might not be economical if you are starting a lot of seeds in bulk. Read Less

          These pots are exactly as expected. The plastic isn't super thick, but is not super thin. It is just a standard nursery pot. If you take good care of it, you could possibly get a few uses out of it. It would be a good buy if you got them on sale for a good price.
          There is one drainage hole in the bottom and a few on the sides near the bottom.
          I will be using these for multiple plantings of determinate tomatoes. Its 18 inch diameter is considered an ideal size for determinate tomatoes so I think it will work out well.

          The Viagrow quad thick extra-strong propagation seedling trays are reusable BPA free and built tough for long-lasting durability. These super strong trays are great for fodder, wheat grass, micro greens or general seed starting and hydroponic use. They are 4 times the thickness of regular 10 in. x 20 in. trays so save your money and buy it once. If a 72 insert is required please see product number V726220 and for a tall dome please see product number VTD300.

          You really don't appreciate the benefit of these strong trays until you are holding this thick tray in one hand and a standard flimsy tray in the other hand at the same time. These trays are just far superior and will definitely last a long time. They are definitely a must have if you are growing your seedlings on a wire rack as they will provide the stability you need. They are super solid and not flimsy at all.
          There no holes in these trays as they are meant to go under the standard seed starter cells for watering from below. If you wanted to overseed microgreens or something in these trays and you wanted drainage, you'd need to poke the holes yourself.

          These lights are really pretty when the lights are on. The light reflects off the glass really nicely. Its pretty, but also not overly so. It would be a nice compromise light fixture that would appeal to anyone.
          I really have no complaints, but if I had to pick something it was that the beads and the glass shades came in two separate pieces and it was annoying to install them. The fixture came with a special tool to aid in the installation. It would probably be much more difficult if you were to lose that tool and you had to uninstall and reinstall the beads for whatever reason. You can install the light bulbs without taking anything apart though so its not a big deal.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Very Bright

          Answer: 
          You can use a center sink counter top for this vanity. I used a glacier bay countertop Model # 2237SQ-SLV3. A sink with those dimensions would work just fine. However, be careful which sink you do choose. If the sink is too wide or deep, it may interfere with the drawers. You'll also need to ensure your plumbing from the wall won't interfere with the drawers in that set up as well.

          Answer: 
          No part of the outside gets hot. I touched the grate over the heating element and it was not particularly hot. However little pinkie fingers might fit through the grate holes or some stick object could get poked through the holes. I would say other than that it's pretty safe as far as space heaters go.

          This is rated for a dry location, but as long as it is 3 feet away from a shower or bathtub, safety codes in most locations will allow for a light fixture rated as "dry" to be installed in the bathroom as long as there is good ventilation. If it is directly above a bathtub, it needs to be 8 feet higher than the tub which usually isn't possible.

          If you believe any water will ever come in contact with it or that it will be subject to an unusual amount of condensation, you should look for a fixture rated for damp locations. You will be hard pressed to actually find a pendant type lighting that is rated for damp though.
