Microgreens

Temperature

  • Germination: 20-24°C
  • Growth: 16-18°C

Light

  • Microgreens do best in full light, in a well-ventilated area.
  • 12 to 14 hours per day is recommended for growing indoors with Bulbo lights.

Soil

  • Microgreens require a mixed soil, rich in nutrients and with a good capacity to retain water.
  • For microgreens, we recommend this soil mix.

Time Of Growth

  • Expect about 2 to 5 days for germination and 5 to 21 days from seed to harvest, depending on variety.
  • Harvest after the first true leaves appear and when the microgreens reach anywhere from 3 to 7 cm.

HOW TO START

  • Rinse seeds in a strainer under running water.
  • Pre-treatment: soak in water for some time to induce germination. (Consult directions indicated on the seed package.)
  • Use a shallow plastic container (5 cm max.) with holes on the bottom for drainage.
  • Fill the container with a layer of soil, leaving no more than 1 cm from the soil to the top of the container. Delicately compress the soil, not too much.
  • After any pre-treatment, sow the seeds uniformly across the soil, with a seed density around 1 to 4 seeds per cm² depending on the size of the seed.
  • Moisten soil and seeds using a spray bottle, so that they are sufficiently wet to stay moist for 2 to 3 days.
  • Cover the container with plastic wrap and keep in in the dark for 2 to 3 days, until the seeds sprout.

WATERING & CARE

  • When the seeds have sprouted, remove the plastic wrap and expose the container to light.
  • Keep the soil continuously moist, using a spray bottle to water at the roots. Careful not to get the leaves wet.

Nutritional Values

  • Microgreens are characterised by a richness in vitamins and nutrients anywhere from 4 to 40 times higher than full-grown vegetables. They are capable of helping digestion and protecting against illness.

How To Use

  • Microgreens should be consumed raw.
  • They can be used as a garnish on a main dish, instead of lettuce on sandwiches, or even in cocktails and juices. Their flavour is typically stronger than their full grown companions.
