Charlie's Greenhouse (in Washington state) has a brief offering for 5 free flats and domes if you order $95 of other items. Since I was considering buying several heated seed mats, this seems like a pretty good deal.

The offer expires Feb 6, 2012.

Here's the offer: http://www.charleysgreenhouse.com/pgs2/ ... letter.htm

How did these flats work out for you, Bob?

RC, you're really digging out the old stuff. If you place your order using Swiss neutrinos, it might make it there in time.

Seriously, the domes are nice for the first week or two after a tiny sprout is placed into its own cell. Even then, I have a Pop-Sickle stick label in every 4-cell group (so 12 per tray), which lifts the dome above the 1020 tray about a quarter inch, allowing some ventilation.

I use a 1020 tray without holes, beneath a 1020 tray with holes, into which the cell inserts are placed. When needed, I remove a 4-cell group, dump in 2 cups of water (into the upper tray), replace the cells, and forget about it for a few days to a week. The bottom tray eliminates any worry about overwatering or drainage onto the floor. This worked well.

If you start seedlings in waves, then you really only use enough domes to cover one batch at a time. I would say, in general, that you really don't need the domes, if you're careful about bottom-watering, and the ambient environment isn't too drafty.
