Lesson 7: When to Remove Trays from Blackout

When to place microgreens under the light causes confusion even with advanced microgreen growers. If you follow the instructions in the Lesson video it will take much of the doubt away. The video also shows the difference between mold and those cute little root hairs that show when microgreen seeds germinate.

Lesson 11: Harvesting & Storing Microgreens

You have done it! You got your growing space prepared, you fill trays and sowed seeds, care for them in their more venerable state, gave them life with light, and carefully cared for them as they grew. Now it is time to harvest. In this lesson, I discuss how to know when microgreens are ready to harvest, what tools to use to harvest and store cut microgreens, and two methods that you can use to harvest.
