Home Microgreens Planting & Watering Tray with Soil

(10 customer reviews)

$4.99

You get both the Home Microgreens Planting Tray and Watering tray along with the perfect amount of professional potting mix!

You only need seeds to start growing microgreens.

Holes in the bottom of the tray are placed to optimize water absorption during bottom watering and drain the soil media.

Watering microgreens this way keeps the leaves dry and reduces fungus and disease issues. Also, it stops soil from splashing up on the microgreens, keeping them clean.

The Home Microgreens potting mix is coco coir based and you won’t find a better growing medium.

Each tray is 7 1/2″ by 5″ by 1.5″. The soil volume is the perfect volume for the tray.

Each tray comes with a lid that can be used during the blackout period.

Just level and tamp the soil surface with the lid, wet the soil, and plant!

You get both the Home Microgreens Planting and Watering Tray that are ideal microgreen growing trays for the home microgreen grower. Plus, it comes with the perfect amount of soil to grow microgreens!

The planting tray comes with the Home Microgreens potting mix, the soil that has yet to be beaten in head to head growing tests. 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 watering tray is used to water the microgreens from the bottom. The watering tray can also be used as a blackout dome.

The versatility makes these the perfect microgreen growing trays for those growing microgreens for their own use.

This set-up is perfect for those that want to place their microgreens on the kitchen counter or a narrow table near a window.

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 are 7 1/2″ by 5″ by 1.5,” making a surface area of 37.5 inches.

The Potting Mix

The potting mix is a professional potting mix that is coco coir based. The mix contains no peat moss.

The volume of soil is perfect for the planting tray. If anything, a bit may need to be removed.

All of the microgreen photos in the store and on HomeMicrogreens.com have been grown with this potting mix. We’ll use nothing else.

The Lid

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.

The Watering Tray

The planting tray is placed inside the watering tray for a few reasons. First, it stops fine soil that may fall through the holes in the planting tray from falling onto the table or counter. Second, it allows you to bottom water your microgreens.

The planting tray fits into the watering tray perfectly. The planting tray will float until it starts to soak up the water.

Don’t worry; water will not flow out the top.

The watering tray can also be used as a tall dome if you choose to grow microgreens with this method.

    I’ve been growing microgreens for some time, but I wanted to try out Todd’s set-up and easy bottom watering trays. So far I’m liking the product, and given the very affordable price for soil-packed trays…I highly recommend everyone try them, but especially people new to growing. Easy to be successful and low investment!

    Wow! My order arrived so quickly!

    I tend to make things more complicated than they need to be, so I thought I’d run here and there to pick up supplies. That was weeks ago.

    Finding these pre-loaded grow trays in a manageable size helped me make the decision to just DO it. They are ready to go, no muss, no fuss. The sunflower seeds I received look fresh and lively, too.
    Very happy I found Home Microgreens!

    This is a great kit to get started. I’m growing my lettuce in this. It just germinated and looking forward to see how it grows.

    This was a great value to decide if we wanted to start growing micro greens. I had no idea they’d be so simple. Super tasty too. Ready in about a week! This kit is very convenient and makes the experience enjoyable! Highly recommend.
