What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are just miniature plants of greens, herbs and other vegetables. Because of their young age at harvest (7 to 10 days) they are a concentrated nutrient source and packed with beneficial enzymes.
Microgreens are simple to grow indoors since they are ready for harvest in just 7 to 10 days, leaving not enough time for the grower to mess things up. When the microgreens are ready for harvest a simple hair cut with scissors down to 1/4 inch from the soil is all it takes.
The most common plants used as microgreens are: Lettuce, kale, spinach, wheat grass, watercress, chia, herbs, radish and sunflower.
Supplies you will need are: Seed tray, seed starting soil, heat mat, seed starting fertilizer and possibly a grow light depending on growing conditions.
