  • 12 to 14 hours per day are recommended for growing indoors with Bulbo lights.

Soil

  • Expect about 5 to 7 days for germination, about 40 days for mature leaves and about 60 to 70 days for root harvest, depending on variety.
  • Microgreens are ready when they reach about 3-5 cm in height.

HOW TO START

  • For beetroots: Beets can be sown directly into pots, using a deep pot which will accommodate root growth. Plant seeds 2 to 3 cm deep every 6 to 8 cm.
  • For beet leaves: Plant seeds 2 to 3 cm apart.
  • For microgreens: disperse seeds evenly across the surface and lightly cover with soil.
  • Cover with plastic wrap until the first sprouts show. 

WATERING & CARE

  • During the first weeks, ensure the soil is always slightly damp and even as the roots mature make sure to water constantly.
  • Beet require a good soil humidity, to allow the roots to grow fully and sweet to the taste.

  • Beet roots are delicious boiled, baked, and grilled. Greens can be used in salads and sandwiches. You can also harvest as seedlings for micro green treats.
