The Deluxe Microgreens Growing Kit
The deluxe microgreens kit includes supplies and instructions to grow microgreens both hydroponically and in soil. Some seeds are easier to grow hydroponically (broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, kale, mustard, etc…) while other seeds will do much better in soil (sunflower, pea, cilantro, etc…). This microgreens kit includes everything you need to get started with both approaches. It allows you to enjoy the broadest selection of flavors and colors. You will be harvesting your own delicious and nutritious microgreens in ten days. Your family and friends will enjoy this colorful, healthy and delicious new live food alternative.
Microgreens can be grown (both the soil based and hydroponic approaches) on any kitchen countertop, indoors or out.
Each Deluxe Microgreens Kit Includes:
- 10 - 21”x10” Growing Trays – These re-usable trays double as both growing tray and black-out dome. Our growing approach doesn’t require drain holes in the trays, so no water concerns for countertop gardening. Enough trays to run 5 crops at once. You can easily section your trays and run multiple varieties at once.
- 10 – 21”x10” Hydroponic Grow Pads – These pads fit perfectly in the growing trays and are the best way we have found to grow microgreens. Enough to grow 10 trays worth of microgreens. Extra grow pads are available.
