Grow Microgreens in a Small Space

October 2, 2018

Microgreens can be grown year-round in side your house. They do not take up much room and grow quickly. You need only about 2 square feet of space to grow a full tray of microgreens. Microgreens need bright light as they germinate. Grow with LED or HOT5 fluorescent grow lamps.

Shallow trays and bowls make good containers for growing microgreens. Harvest after the seedlings have developed only a few true leaves, which typically occurs in 9 to 14 days. Use sharp scissors or herb snips to cut the greens off just above where they are rooting. Use fresh as harvested microgreens don't keep long in the refrigerator.
