Soil Based Microgreens Growing Kit
Some of our favorite microgreens don’t do well hydroponically and prefer soil. This starter kit includes everything you need (including soil) to start growing exciting microgreens like sunflower, buckwheat, pea, and others in soil. 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.
This kit is a soil based kit. Microgreens can be grown on any kitchen countertop, indoors or out. You can grow any microgreens seeds in soil, but most seed types are easier and cleaner using our hydroponic microgreens kit. Our deluxe microgreens kit includes both soil based, and hydroponic seeds and supplies.
Each Soil Based Microgreens Kit Includes:
- 6 - 20”x10” Growing Trays – These re-usable trays double as both growing tray and black-out dome. Our hydroponic approach doesn’t require drain holes in the trays, so no water concerns for countertop gardening. Enough trays to run 3 crops at once. You can easily section your trays and run multiple varieties at once.
- 2 – 8 Quart Bags of Soil – Compostable . Enough to grow 6 trays worth of microgreens. Extra soil is available.
- pH Test Strip Kit – Microgreens are sensitive to the pH of your water. This pH Testing Kit will easily walk you through the process of testing the pH of your water, and adjusting it (if necessary) using household vinegar or baking soda.
- Spray Bottle – For the first 4 days, your germinating microgreens should be misted. This spray bottle is the perfect tool.
Assortment of Microgreens Seeds – Enough microgreens seeds in reseal bags for 12 trays of greens!
