Growing Micro Greens:

Growing Micro Greens At HomeAll you need to grow micro greens at home is a few disposable pie plates, soil, seeds, and access to sunlight.

Fill a pie pan with 3 cups of soil and plant the seeds according to package directions. Water them regularly and make sure they get access to direct sunlight.

It takes roughly 3-4 weeks for your seeds to grow into micro greens. Generally, you can harvest the greens between weeks 3 and 5, snipping them right at the soil and washing your harvest thoroughly before serving.

Micro Green Tips:

You Can Stack Micro Greens!Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your micro greens.

  • Make sure that your container is clean before adding the soil and seeds.
  • Put the greens in a warm and sunny windowsill. South-facing windows seem to be the most effective.
  • Use a mister once or twice per day to make sure that the soil is damp but not soaked.
  • If your greens are long and pale, then they’re probably not getting enough sunlight. They need at least 4 hours of direct sun per day.
  • You can grow more than one type of green in your container. Try broccoli, cabbage, sunflowers, chia, etc!
