How to Grow Micro greens at Home?
If you enjoy indoor gardening and want living proof that good things truly do come in small packages, try growing micro greens.
Microgreens are Seedlings of most standard vegetables and herbs. Think turnips, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, lettuce, spinach, amaranth, cabbage, beets, parsley and basil, to name a few. Because the plants must be harvested when they are small — usually when they are only about 3-4 inches tall or less and have developed their first two “true” leaves — they grow better indoors than in an outdoor garden. That means anyone can grow them either on a windowsill, under a kitchen counter light or with a grow light in the garage.
These tasty morsels are packed with nutrition, and the intense flavour of their tiny leaves often mimics the flavour of the mature plant. With basil micro greens, for example, you get the flavour of basil without having to grow the plant to maturity. Served as a garnish, they dress up a dinner plate and are a fun way to enjoy healthy eating and impress family and friends at the same time.
e can be tricky, but a simple fluorescent light can work wonders. Here, some micro greens almost ready for harvest sit next to some still-covered newly planted seeds.
Should Micro greens be placed on the Windowsill?
Pryor’s experience with growing on a windowsill has not produced good results. There are several problems with windowsills. The biggest is that the light comes at the plants from an angle. As a result, the plants will bend towards the light instead of growing straight up. Consequently, they tend to be spindly because of the indirect light. You could perhaps compensate for this by rotating the growing tray to try to create uniform vertical growth. Another problem is that windowsills tend to be narrower than the growing containers, creating an awkward sort of balancing act. If you’re a cat lover whose pet likes to sit in the window, you may have an additional problem!
Common Mistakes to Avoid
Overwatering or under watering
Make sure the soil has enough water but not too much. The idea is to moisten the soil well with your mister but not to saturate it. Making sure your saucer has drainage holes will keep the soil from getting too wet. If you’re using a saucer such as one made of clay, make sure it isn’t sitting in water. Clay saucers will wick water up into the soil.
Not Using Enough Seeds
Completely cover the surface of the soil. The goal is to get a nice dense mat of sprouts.
