THE PAPERPOT SYSTEM

Starter Kit

PAPERPOT STARTER KIT OPTIONS

We offer three different starter kits.

The All Sizes Kit includes one case of 2", 4", and 6" paper chain pots. Some growers prefer to use different paper chain spacings to optimize plant growth.

The 6-inch Kit includes one case of 6" paper chain pots. Some growers prefer to grow all of the crops in 6" paper chain pots to simplify farm operations.

The Paperpot Essentials Kit enough to get you started with the paperpot system.

Click the buttons below to take a deeper dive into each kit.

This package includes one case of each size of paperchains, enabling you to customize your crop spacing.

The All Sizes Kit includes:

  • Paperpot Transplanter
  • 1 Case - 2" Paper Chain Pots
  • 1 Case - 4" Paper Chain Pots
  • 1 Case - 6" Paper Chain Pots
  • Dibble Board
  • Opening Kit
  • 20 Paperpot Germination Trays
  • Kwik Klik™️ Drop Seeder Package
    • 1 Paperpot Bottom Plate
    • 1 Paperpot 3mm Thick 3mm Diameter Top Plate
    • 1 Paperpot 3mm Thick 5mm Diameter Top Plate

Paperpot Transplanter

The main component of the paper pot system.

With this tool, one person can transplant 264 seedlings in minutes!

Chain pots are loaded onto the deck of the transplanter and are pulled out of the transplanter behind you as you pull the transplanter forward.  A built-in shoe cuts a furrow into the soil to receive the chain pots while sweeps and the rear wheels close the furrow around the transplants.

The transplanter is versatile.  Growers use this tool to transplant lettuce, radishes, turnips, onions, peas, beans, herbs, and many more crops.

Kwik Klik™️ Drop Seeder Package

Our patented Kwik Klik™️ Drop Seeder will revolution your greenhouse operations. Quickly and accurately seed all 264 holes of the paper chain pot in seconds. Just imagine seeding 264 holes one by one by hand versus seeding all 264 holes in one click.  The Kwik Klik™️ works with pelleted and raw seed making it a tool that saves you money by decreasing labor and controlling seed waste.

The Kwik Klik™️ is:

  • Extremely fast - seed a flat in seconds
  • Extremely versatile - infinite seeding combinations for all types of cell trays
  • Ultra-durable - made with a powder-coated steel frame
  • Handmade in Canada by skilled craftsman.
  • Extremely precision - seeds go where you want ever time
  • Optimized for microgreens - special seed plates make microgreen seeding very fast and accurate

Dibble Board

Quickly create depressions for seeds in all 264 holes of the paper chain pot.  The dibbler allows you to take what could be a time-consuming step of making 264 holes one by one and turns in into a simple step which only takes a few seconds. The dibbler is manufactured to create 264 uniform 12mm holes which work in conjunction with paperpot drop seeders.

Opening Kit

The spreader bars are used to pull the paper chain apart; the spreader frame holds the paper chain open while you fill it with soil.

Paperpot Germination Trays

Germination trays hold the paper chain pots during seeding and germination.  The trays give structure to the paper chain pots while providing drainage via bottom holes.  One tray can hold one paper chain (264 plants) and the plants must remain in the tray until transplanting.  Depending on the size of your farm you may need to order additional trays. The germination trays can also be dually purposed for growing microgreens.

Paper Chain Pots

  • 1 Case CP303 - 2" In Row Spacing - 150 total paper chain pots
  • 1 Case LP303-10 - 4" In Row Spacing - 75 total paper chain pots
  • 1 Case LP303-15 - 6" In Row  Spacing - 75 total paper chain pots

This package was put together based on farmer Erich Schultz’s farming system of using 6″ paper chains for all of his crops at Steadfast Farm.

The advantage of this is it simplifies farming operations. All crops are grown in 6″ paper chain pots with 4 rows per 30″ bed.

He has had great success with this method. If you are looking for a more traditional way of planting using 2″, 4″, and 6″ paper chain pots consider our All Sizes Kit.

The 6-Inch kit includes:

  • Paperpot Transplanter
  • 1 Case - 6" Paper Chain Pots
  • Dibble Board
  • Opening Kit
  • 20 Paperpot Germination Trays
  • Kwik Klik™️ Drop Seeder Package
    • 1 Paperpot Bottom Plate
    • 1 Paperpot 3mm Thick 3mm Diameter Top Plate

Easy to put together, well built and a quick learning curve. Love it!!

Everything arrived well packaged and in one piece, and I was able to get right down to it. There's always some learning curve with a new tool, but between the kit and all the instruction available through the website I expect things to go pretty smoothly.

My first intro to the PPT was at a course run by Curtis at Steadfast Farm (at the original location!). I could already see the merits back then but my Farm was new, small and we had lots of irregular beds, so I put it off. Now, we have grown our production area and more of our beds are standard size. I decided to invest because I know it's going to save me so much time and effort, pain on my (not so young anymore) body and in the long term, labor costs (I'm in CA).
Other benefits I didn't foresee were in organisation and seed germination. By this I mean, we were previously more ad hoc with our seeding and the PPT system encouraged us to be focused and organized in our approach. As a result, we are more efficient and effective. Our seeding area is now more organized and works better for us.
The second surprise was the germination rates - when we use the standard trays, or soil blocking, or direct seeding methods, we often see mixed germination rates, sometimes with only 50% of the tray germinating. Now, using the PPT trays and our more organized approach, we are getting almost 100% germination. I love to see the full trays of seedlings ready to go in the ground, (and knowing that hours of work will now be minutes!)
I was impressed with the video instruction for setup, maintenance and use of the PPT, and the high quality of the product. The transplanter itself was a breeze to put together! Shipping was quick, and Diego was responsive to my questions. I'm really glad I've made the switch! Really glad!

We have been using the paperpot transplanter about 6 months. We really like using it and it has saved us a ton of time. We are a no till farm in NC and that was something we were a little hesitant to use the PPT with at first. I was totally wrong and the tool has been great.
