We Use & Trust
Visit the Home Microgreens Store
Here's a list of resources I use to grow and raise microgreens. There are also some website resources I use for this site if you're interested in such things.
Each of these resources I use, have used, or trust to grow my own microgreens. Some of the links may be my affiliates, and as such I will receive a small commission if you purchase after using the link at NO additional cost to you. It's these small commission that help create the content on this site. I appreciate all the help you may provide.

Amconsure 30W LED Full Spectrum Grow Lamp
The Amconsure grow light is the one used in the test between it and the LED shop lights. I like the this light as it performed well, and because it has a 12-hour timer, the three arms are very adjustable, and the clamp works well holding it in any position.
If you are going to grow between 1 and 3 small trays of microgreens this light works well!
UniFun 45W LED Grow Light
This 45-watt grow light panel is 12- by 12-inches and will work great for microgreens. Because you raise the light between 12- and 18-inches above the growing plants it can be used for 4 to 6 small trays of microgreens.
It doesn't work well when using storage racks to grow microgreens but can be hung over a table or any flat surface. I also use two of these lights to grow tomatoes indoors.
TaoTronics Full Spectrum Grow Light Bulbs
You can use this 36-watt full spectrum grow light bulb in a clamp-on shop light fixture. Two of these bulbs in Home Depot Clamp Light fixture light up one of my microgreen storage shelves.
The light spreads out and will provide enough coverage and light to grow 6 small trays of microgreens. If you rotate your trays daily two bulbs could provide light for up to 10 small trays.

Seed Heating Mats
VIVOSUN Durable Waterproof Seedling Heat Mat
Seed heating mats will without a doubt speed up your microgreen production. Seeds will germinate quicker and the microgreens will grow faster.
We use two mats on each shelf of the microgreen growing rack. They use little electricity with no problems after two years of use. Also notice you can buy a two pack and save a bit of money.
