We have published an article on our recommended planting method on HomeMicrogreens.com.

These microgreens are vigorous growers and are ready for harvest in 8 days.

The flavor is nutty, a bit like the meat of sunflower seeds, with a very crunchy texture.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Small Black Sunflower Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 22.8 grams

1010 Tray: 60.8 grams

1020 Tray: 121.6 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.9 Quarter Cups

1010 Tray: 2.4 Quarter Cups

1020 Tray: 1.2 cups

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Sunflower microgreens or shoots.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.

Three teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon

Four Tablespoons equal 1/4 cup
