Here's a quick guide to get you started.

Step 1:

Choose Your Seeds - Select seeds specifically meant for microgreens. Popular choices include radish, arugula, kale, and sunflower.

Step 2:

Prepare Your Growing Medium - You can use soil or a soilless medium like coconut coir. Fill a shallow tray with your chosen medium to a depth of about 1-2 inches.

Step 3:

Sow the Seeds - Sprinkle the seeds evenly over the surface of the growing medium. Press them lightly into the medium but do not cover them with more soil.

Step 4:

Water Gently - Use a spray bottle to mist the seeds lightly. Keep the medium moist but not waterlogged. Cover the tray with a lid or plastic wrap to maintain humidity until the seeds germinate.

Step 5:

Provide Adequate Light - Once the seeds sprout, remove the cover and place the tray in a location with plenty of natural light or under a grow light. Microgreens need about 12-16 hours of light per day.

Step 6:

Harvest - In 7-14 days, your microgreens will be ready to harvest. Use scissors to cut the greens just above the soil line. Rinse them gently and enjoy them fresh in salads, sandwiches, or smoothies.

Growing microgreens is a fun and easy way to add fresh, nutritious greens to your diet. Happy gardening!
