How to sow
Place the hydroponic mat (coconut coir or multi-purpose soil ) in the tray. Pour water into the bottom of a tray and allow it to soak up the water.
Evenly spread seed of the package over the mat. The more seed on the mat, the denser your crop will be.
Thoroughly mist seed with a spray bottle. Cover with cap and place in an area at room temperature.
Uncover and mist the seed 1-2 times per day. When the sprouts have taken root, remove the tray permanently and expose it to light. Continue watering as needed.
When the first leaves appear, start tasting your microgreens every day to mark the changes in flavor as your crop matures.
When the flavor is to your liking, it's time to harvest! Gently trim microgreens just above the roots.
