This Home Microgreens Planting Tray is ideal for the home microgreen grower and comes with the perfect amount of soil to grow microgreens!
The planting tray comes with a pre-measured professional potting mix. All you need to do is use the lid (comes with the tray) to level and tamp the soil, wet the surface, and sow the microgreen seeds.
The Planting Tray
The holes in the bottom of the planting tray are designed to absorb water from a watering tray. Use either the Home Microgreens Watering Tray or a 10- by 20-inch, which will hold 3 HM planting trays with room to spare and not damage the greens.
The holes in the tray are also placed to drain water if over watered.
Remember, bottom watering microgreens keeps the leaves dry and reduces fungus and disease issues. Also, the bottom watering method stops soil from splashing up on the microgreens reducing the possibility of having to wash the microgreens before consumption.
We highly recommend bottom watering microgreens.
The planting dimensions of each tray is 7 1/2″ by 5″ by 1.5″ making a surface area of 37.5 inches.
The potting mix is a professional potting mix that is coco coir based. No mix contains no peat moss.
The volume of soil is perfect for the planting tray. If anything, a bit may need to be taken out.
All of the microgreens pictures in this store and on HomeMicrogreens.com have been grown with this very same soil product. We’ll use nothing else.
Each tray comes with a lid that can be turned upside down and used to during the blackout period to press the seeds against the soil surface.
The lid is transparent, so a tea towel or some other cloth is recommended to complete darken the seeds during the blackout period.
