GROWING INSTRUCTIONS - HYDROPONICALLY

What You Will Need:

  • Microgreen Seeds
  • 2 Growing Trays Without Holes
  • 1 Growing Tray With Holes

Preparation: Soak seeds for 12 hours in cold water – the water should be double the amount of seeds. After 12 hours drain and rinse seeds.
 
Nest the growing tray with holes into a growing tray without holes. (This is for bottom watering).
 
Scatter seeds evenly on top of the trays. Mist or water seeds lightly to encourage germination.
 
Blackout: To encourage germination and growth; the Microgreens need to go through a blackout phase. 
 
Stack your tray without holes on top of the other two trays (as if nesting) filled with the seeds. Place a weight on top (about 1-2 lbs) and set aside for roughly 3-4 days. Mist Microgreens lightly each day, twice a day.
 
Once they are removed from their blackout phase – the Microgreens should be placed in a well-lit area. The Microgreens need to be watered twice per day. Water the Microgreens by lifting the top tray and pouring the water into the bottom tray without holes – this is called bottom watering.
 
Harvesting: 
After about 10 days the Microgreens should reach roughly 5-6 Inches tall, they are ready to be harvested. 
 
To harvest, use a very sharp knife to cut through the stems an inch above the soil. Do not wash Microgreens until you are ready to eat them. To store them, place them in a Ziplock bag with a few holes poked in it and place in your refrigerators crisper. They will last for up to a week. Enjoy! 

Peas generally have healthy root systems so they prefer soil or coir; but they can thrive hydroponically as well. For best results, presoak seeds in a large bowl with plenty of cold water; and then transfer to a colander and rinse and drain 2-4 times a day until the seedlings begin to peek out. When planting, spread evenly, in a thick layer, and tamp gently to ensure contact with the growth medium. Mist thoroughly twice a day; and keep covered with the blackout/humidity dome for 2-3 more days before exposing to light. Water once a day so the growth medium is damp; but not soggy. 

Are Your Seeds Organic? What does Certified Organic and/or USDA Organic Mean?
All Purely Organic Seeds (and many varieties of the other seed brands we carry) are Certified Organic and carry the USDA Organic Seal. This means that our seeds are non-GMO (not genetically modified), and are chemical and pesticide free. They have passed rigorously standards and certified by a USDA Accredited agency. To determine whether the seed packet you're interested in is organic, look for the USDA Organic seal.

Are Your Seeds Heirloom? What are Heirloom Seeds?
Heirloom Seeds (sometimes called Heritage Seeds) are open pollinated vegetable and herb seed strains that have been planted, grown and harvested for several generations (usually more than 30 or 50 years depending on the variety) with consistent results. Heirloom seeds are always non-GMO and are never hybrids. All of our vegetable and herb seeds are heirloom seeds.

Are Your Seeds Non-GMO? What Does Non-GMO Mean?
Non-GMO means seeds (or other products) that were produced without genetic engineering and were not derived from GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). All of our seeds are non-GMO.

Where do Your Seeds Come From?
Most of the seeds offered on our site are USA Origin seeds sourced from certified US based suppliers. We do also source a small number of seeds from other countries. To view the specific origin of any of our current seed offerings, check the seed packet or look in the specifications for "Country of Origin" on any product page.

Are Your Seeds Packed for the Current Growing Season?
All of our seed packets are packed for the current growing season. If stored properly they will provide high germination rates for 1-2 additional years as well.

How Can I Store My Seeds Safely for Use in the Future?
Our seeds will generally retain their high germination rates for several years from the date of purchase. If you're planning on saving your seeds for us in the future, the most important thing to remember that seeds like to be stored where it is cool, dry and dark. The easiest way to ensure this for long term storage at home is to double-seal your seeds inside two zipper style bags and then place them in the freezer. (Make sure you label your seeds for future reference if they're not in original packaging.) When you're ready to plant your seeds, take just the ones you want to use out of the freezer and let them sit on a counter, in a covered container, for a few days to thaw and stabilize before being planted. To preserve germination rates, minimize temperature, light and humidity fluctuations by storing your seeds at the back of the freezer and only taking them out when you're ready to use them.

The Package with my Seeds in was Left Outside in Freezing and/or Rainy Weather. Will the Seeds Still Work?
As long as your seeds have not gotten wet they should work fine. Freezing temperatures will not hurt the seeds.
