Chia microgreens are amazingly easy to grow and develop into a beautiful soft canopy with a pleasant smell. Chia greens are very small so harvest close to the soil line for maximum yield. ***Note: Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums.

Being native to hot and dry climates, chia has develped this defense mechanism of forming mucus as a way to ensure consistent moisture during germination. In temperate climates chia needs less water than other plants, due to this. The \"mucus\" effect is also what makes it able to stick to terracotta objects. \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eSeeds per Package:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e4 oz - Approximately 88,400 seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 lb -

    Facts:

    Chia is actually a member of the mint family and is native to hot, dry climates.

    Chia is what is called a mucilaginous seed, meaning it develops a mucus membrane around itself when it comes into contact with water. Being native to hot and dry climates, chia has develped this defense mechanism of forming mucus as a way to ensure consistent moisture during germination. In temperate climates chia needs less water than other plants, due to this. The "mucus" effect is also what makes it able to stick to terracotta objects.
