can i fetch up seedlings in transparent cups



Do you mean prick out seedlings into them to grow on? Yes, as long as you pierce holes in the bottom so that they can drain.

I found that they are less expensive than the commercial small pots. I use the colored ones just in case the roots don't like exposure to strong light. Then I stick a thick nail in my soldering gun and burn several holes in the bottom of each cup.

I save yoggurt pots to transplant seedling into, but I initially SOW the seed in trays - rather depends on how many seeds you;re sowing I suppose....might be room to sow 4 or 5 seeds in a yogurt pot, but you could sow loads into a single tray (depends on the specific plant you're trying to grow of course). If you want to save money, get along to Pound Stretcher, where you can buy decent seed trays very cheaply. :-)

Always important to have drainage holes in teh bottom, whatever you end up using.
