Small seed propagator

After reorganizing a closet, my wife was going to recycle a number of clear plastic hinged storage containers. I immediately recognized the possibility of reusing them as seed propagators.

I painted the bottoms and drilled small drainage holes in them; several small holes were drilled in the top sections for ventilation, and, presto, I had very nice propagators. This size will hold at least 26 grow cubes, which is really more than I would start at one time.

To complete the above propagator I used a single tube 6400K T5 24" fluorescent light on an adjustable stand, and added metallic coated Mylar reflecting panels on the front and back.
