Planting Season and Location

✿ Year-round planting indoors is best with light from a window or table lamp.

Indoor Lighting Tips

✿ A lamp can be as close as 3 inches above the top of the plants and should be on during normal awake hours (15 hours a day is ideal).

✿ Dim light will cause the microgreens to lean towards the light, creating “leggy” but edible plants.

Seed Tips

✿ Seeds from past growing seasons work great for growing microgreens!

✿ If you are unsure if old seeds will grow, test some of them out as microgreens. Plant extra seeds to help ensure some will grow.

✿ To avoid wasting seeds, measure out a small amount, such as 1 teaspoon. See how much grows. For your next batch, adjust the amount of seeds as needed.

Key Pests and Diseases

Microgreen seeds and/or seedlings can rot or get moldy if the soil is too wet and cold.
