How To Care For Microgreens



Microgreens are very convenient to grow, as they can be grown in a variety of locations, including outdoors, in greenhouses and even on your windowsill.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Good-quality seeds.

  • A good growing medium, such as a container filled with potting soil or homemade compost. Alternatively, you can use a single-use growing mat specifically designed for growing microgreens.

  • Proper lighting — either sunlight or ultraviolet lighting, ideally for 12–16 hours per day.

Instructions:

  • Fill your container with soil, making sure you don’t over-compress it, and water lightly.

  • Sprinkle the seed of your choice on top of the soil as evenly as possible.

  • Lightly mist your seeds with water and cover your container with a plastic lid.

  • Check on your tray daily and mist water as needed to keep the seeds moist.

  • A couple of days after the seeds have germinated, you may remove the plastic lid to expose them to light.

  • Water once a day while your microgreens grow and gain color.

  • After 7–10 days, your microgreens should be ready to harvest.
