All Microgreen Seeds are Organic, Heirloom and NON GMO

Plant Care

Watering

Wet the seed starting mix. Push your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and make sure it is damp. Excess water should drain through.

Light

Indirect sunlight, 6 to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Provide fertilizer once the first true leaves emerge. The first set of leaves that appear are known as the seed leaves. The second set of leaves are the first ‘true leaves,’ and a sign that your plant is getting mature and ready for serious growth. Dilute a balanced fertilizer to ¼ the strength recommended. Fertilize once in 2 weeks.

GROWING GUIDE FOR GARDEN CRESS MICROGREEN SEEDS

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS
Take a flat shallow tray or a garden pot that is at least 4-5 inches deep.
Fill it with clean potting/garden soil mixed with some manure or vermicompost.
Spread the seeds evenly and densely on the soil surface and cover them with a thin layer of soil (or sand).
Allow the seeds to germinate for 3-4 days, keeping them in shade.
Expose your seedlings to sunlight and air as and when most of them start to sprout from the soil surface.
Find a balcony or a kitchen spot that receives good sun and air.

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
Microgreens are easy to grow and the harvest gets ready in around 7-12 days.
The shoots can grow upto 3 inches long, but can be harvested early according to your requirement.
Take a sharp scissor or knife and cut the shoots just above the soil surface carefully, without affecting the roots.
Make sure to not harvest your crop immediately after watering the plant. Keep the medium dry 4-5 hours before the harvest.
Rinse the cut shoots with warm water and consume immediately for maximum benefits.
