Soil Temperature: 50-75°F Planting Depth: 1/4"-1/2" Germination: 7-10 Days Height At Maturity: 6"-12" Days To Maturity: 55-65 Days Sun/Shade: Full Sun Spacing After Thinning: 6-8" Microgreens growing instructions: Cover the bottom of the container with an inch or two of moistened potting soil/mix or coir. Flatten & level it with your hand or a small piece of cardboard, taking care not to over-compress the soil. Scatter seeds evenly on top of the soil. Press gently into the soil using your hand or the cardboard. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil. Dampen the surface with a mister. If you prefer, you can skip this step & instead cover the container with a clear lid or plastic wrap until the seeds are sprouted. While waiting for sprouts to appear, usually within three to seven days, use the mister once or twice daily to keep the soil moist but not wet. Once seeds have sprouted, remove the cover (if you've used one) & continue to mist once or twice a day. Microgreens need about four hours daily of direct sunlight to thrive (south facing window). in winter months, some may need even more. Leggy, pale greens are a sign of not enough sunlight. Light needs can also be satisfied with a grow light that has a low heat output — you don't want to scorch your delicate greens. Microgreens will be ready to harvest about two to three weeks after planting. Look for the first set of "true leaves" as a sign of readiness. Then grab your scissors & snip the greens just above the soil line. To serve, wash the microgreens with water & dry with paper towels or a salad spinner. Harvest & serve them immediately for the freshest flavor, & add to soups, salads, sandwiches or main dishes. Store remaining cut microgreens in a plastic bag in your refrigerator. Sprouting instructions, this is not the only way to do sprouts, everyone will acquire their own sprouting techniques, but here are the basics: Set your sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight & at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. This is where your sprouts do their growing. A counter top or top of a refrigerator is perfect. Sprouts don't mind the indirect sunlight or the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not matter much. Your sprouts will never have leaves, & a plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your sprouts. Plus, they like air-circulation.First, soak seeds for 3-4 hours. Empty water & rinse. Rinse & Drain again in 8 hours. Then rinse &
