Pop bottles are easier for me to come by and I also have a plastic tray that holds about 6 or 8 of them. Question: the green bottles (semi-clear) -- will they help/hinder germination? Will be sowing both flower and veggie seeds. TIA

I don't think that using transparent green bottles will hinder WS germination--I use the semi-opaque milk jugs (not the pure white Hood ones) all the time and there is plenty of light coming through.

Thanks. After posting I realized that milk bottles are not clear either! :)

As long as you can see your fingers through it, it has enough light coming through...
