Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves.

Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

Product Bio

Fenugreek is most widely used in Indian cuisine, though it is also found in North African and Middle Eastern dishes. Fenugreek microgreen leaves are highly beneficial for treating poor liver functions and dyspepsia. It helps in controlling blood sugar levels as galactomannan, a natural soluble fiber present in Fenugreek slows down the rate of sugar absorption into the blood. It also contains amino acid responsible for inducing the production of insulin. Fenugreek is beneficial in the case of high blood levels of certain fats including cholesterol and triglycerides. It also helps in reducing menstrual discomfort and prevents colon cancer.

GROWING GUIDE FOR FENUGREEK MICROGREEN SEEDS

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS
Use a flat tray or a garden pot with a depth of 4 - 5 inches. Fill it up with potting or garden soil and mix in some manure or vermicompost. Sprinkle the seeds evenly and densely on the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil.
Let the seeds germinate for at least 3-4 days in the shade. Once the seeds have matured into seedlings, expose them to sunlight and air by placing them either in the balcony or the kitchen on a window sill.
Fill it with potting soil and spread seeds on the surface, covering them with a thin layer of soil.
Allow the plant to germinate for 2 days.

GROWING REQUIREMENTS

SOIL
You can use fresh garden soil, cleaned of any impurities or pebbles. Microgreens also grow well in hydroponics. Mix the soil with 30% manure or vermicompost for better results.

SPOT
Microgreens need 4-5 hours of good sunlight. A bright sunny spot near a window or a kitchen shelf is an ideal one.

WATERING
Water this plant regularly without letting the soil dry out completely. Water should not splash on the tiny seeds directly. The soil is to be kept moist from the sides using a water spray or a can. Prefer watering your microgreens twice a day; once in the morning and once in the evening, depending on the room temperature.

HOW TO HARVEST
These tiny leafy greens are the best because they are fast-growing and are ready to be harvested within a mere 7-12 days. These plants can grow up to 3 inches tall but can be harvested earlier as well, depending upon your requirements. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the shoots just above the soil surface without damaging the roots.

Keep the soil dry 4-5 hours before harvesting the shoots. Don’t harvest immediately after watering the plants. Rinse the shoots with water before immediate consumption. Or you can even store them in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. But, microgreens lose their nutritional value over time, so it is advisable to consume them immediately after harvesting.

To grow the next batch of microgreens, decompose the used soil, collect fresh soil in a container, and repeat the same planting process.

Wash the microgreens, pot harvest and they are ready to eat.
