According to the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR), the perfect indoor crop for home gardeners is microgreens. Microgreens are fast-grown vegetables in miniature form, highly concentrated with nutrients. They are perfect for indoor gardening, let alone, container gardening.
With only few supplies needed like: tray, potting soil, black plastic mat, seeds, and a sunny spot, you can easily plant your own microgreen at home. What’s even better is that in only 2 weeks or less, you can already harvest the fruits of your labor.
7 steps of growing microgreens:
- Find a south-facing window with plenty of sunlight or install an inexpensive grow light (e.g., mounted under a kitchen cabinet).
- Place an inch of potting soil in the tray and smooth it out as evenly as possible.
- Scatter seeds over the surface of the soil, densely and evenly.
- Sprinkle a thin layer of soil over the seeds and gently spray or mist the surface with water.
- Place the black mat over the tray to accelerate seed germination.
- Pull back the mat to mist the seeds. Do this a couple of times a day to keep the soil evenly moist.
- One or two days after germination, remove the mat and expose the sprouts to sunlight or the grow light.
