How do i take care of the microgreens after delivery?

Place  your microgreen tray in an area that receives about 2-5 hours of sunlight each day. 

Add about a cup of water each day under the tray. 

When your ready to eat your microgreens, simply take scissors or a sharp knife and cut the desired amount of microgreens needed for that meal. 

Repeat each day until microgreen tray is completely harvested.

What are the benefits of live microgreen trays VS already packaged microgreens?

Live microgreens are considered better than packaged microgreens for a few reasons:
1. Nutrient density: Live microgreens are harvested and consumed immediately, which means that they retain their nutrient density. Packaged microgreens may lose some of their nutritional value during transportation and storage.
2. Freshness: Live microgreens are harvested just before consumption, which means they are at their freshest and have the best flavor. Packaged microgreens may be several days old and may have lost some of their flavor and texture.
3. Safety: Live microgreens are less likely to be contaminated with harmful bacteria or other pathogens because they are grown in a controlled environment and harvested just before consumption. Packaged microgreens may be more susceptible to contamination during transportation and storage.
4. Sustainability: Live microgreens are a more sustainable option than packaged microgreens because they can be grown locally and do not require packaging or transportation.
5. Cost: Live microgreens can be less expensive than packaged microgreens because they do not require packaging or transportation.
While packaged microgreens can be a convenient option, live microgreens are generally considered to be a superior choice in terms of flavor, nutrient density, safety, sustainability, and cost.

Can I store my microgreens if I don't eat them right after harvesting? 

Yes, you can store your microgreens in an air tight container then refrigerate, they will last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. 

Can I reuse the remaining soil?

This soil will not be reusable to grow but you can add it to your compost bin or we can recycle it for you. 

Where is the best spot to place my Live microgreen tray?

Your live microgreen tray should be placed in an area that gets about 2-5 hours of sunlight. 

What happens to my microgreen if I don't harvest them that week?

If you don't harvest your microgreens, they will continue to grow and eventually mature into full-grown plants. The exact outcome will depend on the type of microgreen you are growing and the growing conditions. Here are a few possible outcomes:
1. Bolting: Some microgreens, such as arugula and cilantro, will eventually bolt if they are not harvested. This means that they will start to produce flowers and then seeds, which signals the end of their growing cycle.
2. Crowding: If you don't thin your microgreens, they may become overcrowded and start to compete for resources such as water and nutrients. This can result in stunted growth or even death of some of the plants.
3. Loss of flavor: Microgreens are harvested when they are young and tender, which is when they have the best flavor. If you leave them to grow too long, they may become tough and bitter.
4. Pests and disease: As plants mature, they become more susceptible to pests and disease. If you don't harvest your microgreens, they may be more likely to develop problems that could spread to other plants in your growing area.
Overall, it's best to harvest your microgreens when they are young and tender to ensure that you get the best flavor and nutritional value. If you want to grow full-grown plants, it's best to start with seeds specifically intended for that purpose.
