Squash seedling roots (Cucurbita pepo 'One Ball F1') growing through the walls of a peat pot. A peat pot is used for starting seeds and is made from compressed peat. The entire pot can be planted and the roots of the seedling grow trough the walls of the pot. This reduces the amount of damange the plant may suffer when transplanting. Alternatives to peat are becoming more popular due to environmental issues.
