FAQs

 

How much light do my microgreens need?

Microgreens don't require an excessive amount of light compared to adult vegetables. A window sill with indirect sunlight is fine. If your window doesn't get enough light, we recommend a regular white colour LED light strip mounted under the kitchen cabinet. Place your tray underneath.

How much water do microgreens need?

Microgreens love moisture. Even if there is a pool of water at the bottom of the tray, the Grow A Seed drainage divider ensures good separation between the coir and water. A trick we came up with is to take a mental note of the tray weight when you first hydrate the coir bricks. During growing, if the tray feels light, add some water to it so it feels just as heavy as when you first hydrated the coir in the tray.

How is Grow a Seed socially and environmentally responsible?

As a small start-up, we work with a limited budget and resources. However, we are committed to being as green as possible. Our seeds are organic, and everything in our kit is 100% recyclable. Our manufacturing and assembly partners are all located in Southern Ontario, minimizing our carbon footprint.

The kit costs a bit more than some others. Can you tell me why?

Every component of a Grow A Seed kit is manufactured right here in Ontario. As a result, our costs are somewhat higher than high volume foreign manufacturers. We use only premium quality seeds.
