How to Grow Your Own Microgreens - A First Leaf Farm Cheat Sheet

Simple Step-by-Step Microgreens Growing Guide Using our Home Microgreens Kit:
  1. Wash the 3-piece tray with warm soapy water
    1. Thoroughly rinse the Jute pads with warm water then lay the dampened pad(s) on the tray (each pad will cover approximately ½ the tray) .
  2. Sprinkle your microgreens seeds
    1. Spread microgreens seeds in an even layer across the pads
  3. Mist the tray
    1. You’ll need a spray bottle filled with water, set at light pressure, and gently mist the top of the seeds until the seeds are visibly damp
  4. Cover the seeds with the dome lid
    1. We suggest placing them on a countertop or a place where they will be easily seen and not forgotten
    2. Cover the tray with a towel or something to keep the light out for now
    3. Check your seeds every day for enough moisture spray with water if the seeds are dry using the spray bottle
    4. If you see mold or fungus growing, simply remove the blackout dome to lower the humidity
  5. Allow two to four days for the microgreens seeds to germinate
    1. Let there be light! On or about the 5th day, your newly germinated microgreen seeds will be craving light exposure… this is the perfect time to place them in direct sunlight.
    2. A good rule of thumb is your microgreens will be between ½ and ¾ of an inch in growth, and the first leaves will begin to turn toward the sky—it really is a cool process
    3. They may look a little yellow and gnarly; this is OK—in a couple of days, you will start to see some green growth
