Paper Chain Pots - 4" Spacing

Paper Chain Pots with 4" Spacing, perfect for transplanting crops like beets and turnips with the Paper Pot Transplanter. Crafted from specialized paper and water-soluble adhesive, these paper pots ensure optimal air and water distribution to plant roots, fostering stronger and healthier growth. Each paper chain features 264 honeycomb-shaped chambers, which maximize nursery space. With 264 cells per chain and 75 chains per carton box, they offer efficiency and convenience at a few cents per plant.

How To Use:

  • Select the appropriate paper chain pot according to your desired crop spacing (2”, 4”, or 6”) and insert your spreader bars under the white paper tabs on either side of the paper chain, being careful not to tear the paper. Note: It does not matter how the writing on the paper chain pot faces—either way will work.
  • With the spreader frame in front of you on your work surface, teeth facing up, pull apart the paper chain pot (like an accordion) using the spreader bars as handles. Keep pulling until the paper chain is approximately the width of the spreader frame.
  • You’ll notice an offset tooth in one of the top corners of your spreader frame. Examine the honeycomb pattern in your stretched paper chain pot and reorient it (if necessary) so that the offset corner of the honeycomb lines up with the offset tooth of the frame.
  • Start with one side and position the paper chain pot honeycomb cells over the teeth of the spreader frame. Every other row will be attached to the spreader frame. Note: If you are having trouble aligning the paper chain, it may not be stretched far enough; keeping the paper chain pot stretched the entire width of the frame will help the cells to line up correctly with the teeth.
  • After the first side is successfully inserted into the teeth of the spreader frame, finish by placing the opposite side onto the frame as well, being careful to line up the cells appropriately with the teeth of the frame.
  • After the paper chain pot has been successfully stretched and placed onto the frame, you can remove the spreader bars and set them aside.
  • Take an empty Paperpot germination tray, flip it upside down (holes up), and place it over the frame and the expanded paper chain.
  • Holding both sides of the tray AND the spreader frame, flip everything right side up.
  • Keeping the spreader frame in place, the tray can be filled with potting mix.
  • Dibble the soil to make a depression for the seed.
  • Seed all 264 cells by hand or using our Kwik Klik Drop Seeder.
  • Cover seeds and transplant after 10-30 days.

Great news! We love that everything is working out so well for you =) Thanks so much!

Perfect fit for a high tunnel

4" chain pots are my go-to for fall, winter and early spring transplants in my 30' x 98' high tunnels. 1 chain per row with very little waste. Spacing is perfect for spinach, salad mix, scallions and cilantro. Enhances the efficiency and productivity of protected culture in the shoulder seasons. A total game changer.

So glad they work so well for you! Thanks for your purchase.
