This Home Microgreens Planting Tray with soil 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 Home Microgreens 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.
This set does not contain a watering tray. You can use anything as a watering tray as long as it is larger than the planting tray and holds water.
Home Microgreens Planting Tray With Soil
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 washing 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 Home Microgreens potting mix, a perfect mix to grow all microgreens. We have yet to find a growing medium that outgrows this mix. It contains no peat and is coconut coir based.
The volume of soil is perfect for the planting tray. If anything, a bit may need to be taken out.
All of the microgreens shown in this store and on HomeMicrogreens.com use this soil product. We’ll use nothing else.
Each tray comes with a lid that can be turned upside down and used 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 completely darken the seeds during the blackout period.
