Notes & Growing Tips: Red Clover is a fast, easy growing microgreen. On the 3rd or 4th day, flip the blackout lid upside down and mist the bottom end. Lay ontop of the growing clover sprouts to force them to grow strong. Leave the lid flipped for one or two days before exposing fully to light.

Red clover has a mild, fresh flavor. It is better if it is not grown past the microgreen stage. Experiment with harvesting earlier than 10 days, as the flavor is sweeter the younger the clover.

***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums. Results may vary.
