In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of growing microgreens using Grassroots Farms Grow Kits, including a unique dark out period and essential tips for optimal growth.

Let’s get growing:

Step 1: Unbox Your Grassroots Farms Grow Kit
Open your Grassroots Farms Grow Kit and familiarize yourself with the contents. Each kit includes trays, growing medium, seeds, and detailed instructions.

Step 2: Prepare Your Growing Containers
Set up your tray provided in the kit and fill it with the included growing medium. Ensure the soil is evenly distributed and lightly packed, leaving space from the rim for watering.

Step 3: Sow Your Grassroots Farms Seeds
Sprinkle the seeds evenly over the surface of the soil in your trays. To ensure good contact and promote root and stem formation, gently press the seeds into the soil or place a weight on top of the seeds.

Step 4: Dark Out Period (Day 1-5)
Cover your tray with a blackout dome or a dark cloth for the first 1-3 (or until sprouting takes place) days after sowing. This dark out period encourages the seeds to germinate and promotes strong root growth.

Step 5: Provide Light and Water
After the dark out period, remove the blackout dome or cloth and place your tray in a location with ample sunlight. Water your microgreens regularly, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged.

Step 6: Monitor and Maintain
Keep an eye on your microgreens as they grow, adjusting the tray rotation as needed to maintain optimal growing conditions. Continue to water regularly and ensure proper airflow around the tray.

Step 7: Harvest Your Grassroots Farms Microgreens
In about 1-2 weeks, your microgreens will be ready to harvest! Use scissors or a sharp knife, to snip the greens just above the soil line. Rinse and Enjoy the fresh, flavorful taste of your homegrown microgreens in salads, sandwiches, and more.

Tips and tricks:

– During the dark out period, place weights on top of the seeds to ensure good contact with the soil and promote even germination.
– Rotate your trays regularly to promote even growth and prevent leggy stems.
– Experiment with different Grassroots Farms microgreens seed varieties to discover new flavors and textures.
