Need a quick start to hydroponics? Try micro greens.

Microgreens are a popular addition to many dishes and are gaining popularity in the health and wellness community. These small, delicate greens are packed with flavor and nutrients, making them a versatile and nutritious ingredient to add to a wide range of dishes. One of the main benefits of microgreens is their quick growth time. In this blog post, we will explore just how quick-growing microgreens are and why they make a great addition to any diet.

What are Microgreens?

Microgreens are young plants that are harvested when they are just a few inches tall, usually after the first set of true leaves have formed. They are grown from the seeds of many different types of plants, including kale, broccoli, radish, and pea, to name a few. These small plants are typically grown indoors, in trays or containers, making them a perfect choice for urban gardening or year-round cultivation.

How Quick Growing are Microgreens?

Microgreens are among the quickest-growing plants you can grow. In just a few short weeks, microgreens can go from a tiny seed to a tiny plant with several leaves. Depending on the variety of microgreens, they can take as little as a week to grow to a harvestable size. This fast growth time makes them a great choice for those who want to grow their own fresh greens but have limited space or time.

The speed at which microgreens grow is due to a few different factors. First, microgreens are grown from seeds that are specifically chosen for their quick growth rate. These seeds are often referred to as "sprouting seeds" or "microgreen seeds." They have been selected for their ability to germinate quickly and produce tender, delicate greens in a short amount of time.

Second, microgreens are typically grown in a controlled environment, such as a greenhouse or indoor grow space. This allows for optimal growing conditions, including consistent temperature, humidity, and light. With these ideal growing conditions, microgreens can grow much faster than they would in an outdoor garden.

Why Microgreens are a Great Addition to Any Diet

Aside from their quick growth time, microgreens have a host of other benefits that make them a great addition to any diet. Microgreens are packed with nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They are also low in calories and high in fiber, making them a great choice for those looking to maintain a healthy weight.

Microgreens are also incredibly versatile. They can be used in a wide range of dishes, from salads and sandwiches to smoothies and juices. Their delicate flavour and texture make them a great addition to many dishes, and their nutritional value makes them a smart choice for those looking to boost their overall health.
