Microgreen Podcast Episode 009 Show Notes
This episode shows and answers one of the most commonly asked questions. Can you reuse microgreen soil?
This podcast is associated with the following article. The article also includes a video of how we ran the experiment and shows the results.
The soil we use is our own blend consisting of a coco coir base. We do sell it in small bags in the Home Microgreens Store. Click the button below to see our soil product page.
Here's a photo of our results reusing microgreen soil.
Even though we show that you can easily grow a new tray of microgreens on reused microgreen soil, we still do not recommend it.
The chance for disease is too great, and it takes a bit of time to prepare the trays for planting. We'd rather throw the old soil in the compost heap and plant a new tray of microgreens on fresh soil.
Fresh soil leads to fresh microgreens.
This is the reason we use soil over planting on microgreen mats.
