Learning to grow Microgreens requires some basic and simple steps. Microgreens can be grown in various climates and in soil that is slightly more alkaline. Microgreens can also be grown in the pots that have been pre-packaged and are placed in the window. Learning to grow Microgreens is easy and it takes a couple of weeks to the first crops to be produced.
The first mistake made when growing Microgreens is to harvest them too soon. Harvesting too soon can result in the roots not getting the nutrients and water that they need and may actually prevent the plants from developing at all.
The next mistake that people make when growing Microgreens is to pick a lot of microgreens. Microgreens are very small and they are a great way to harvest them for the kitchen. They are so small that the seeds can be picked and dried very easily, thus saving the gardener from a lot of work.
The third mistake that people make when growing Microgreens is to try to harvest the plants too often. Harvesting more than once a week can actually prevent the plants from growing at all, but some people just do not like to wait that long. Harvesting once a week allows the plants to get the nutrients and water that they need, and will also help prevent the plants from drying out too fast.
The fourth mistake that people make when growing Microgreens is to try to grow the plants in too large of a container. This can lead to over-potting, which will result in the plants growing very small, and may actually hinder the growth of the plants. Some people will use a combination of pots and window boxes to grow the plants.
The fifth mistake that is made is to not fertilize the plants when they first begin to grow. Fertilizing the plants will prevent them from growing so small, and will help prevent the plant from drying out, and will also help prevent the plants from becoming diseased and dying.
The last mistake that is made is to do too many replications. When growing Microgreens, it is important to remember that it takes a few of days to the first crop to produce. If one plant is replanted, it will result in two plants.
