I assumed that the clear ‘lids’ for the seed starter systems were for two purposes.
1 - to help protect the sponges during shipping. 2 - to stand the (wet) starter tray in while cleaning or refilling the water reserviour, since the starter tray doesn’t have a water filling hole.
The seed starter tray lid for the Harvest machines doesn’t have a cut-away at the back to go around the light pillar, so it’s definitely not designed to use as a propagation cover. (A lot of people on amazon UK seem to make this mistake and leave bad reviews for the starter tray as a result).
I also saw a youtube video on the starter tray that said to remove the upper pump tube that normally directs water into the cover and down into the sponges, as the seed starter system isn’t really designed to drip water into the top of the sponges, and failing to remove the upper pump tube will result in water forming a ’fountain’ above the starter tray. Another thing a lot of the poor Amazon reviews seem to indicate.
