What are microgreens?
Microgreens are the seedling versions of vegetables and herbs you know and love. Kind of like sprouts, but a little bit older. Broccoli, kale, basil, radish, mustard, bok choy, watercress, chives, and more can all be eaten as microgreens. And guess what - they're actually even MORE flavorful and nutritious per bite than the regular versions! Microgreens make a great addition to every meal - sandwiches, omelettes, stirfries, salads, smoothies - you name it.
Is it organic?
All Seed Quilts contain non-GMO seeds, and some Seed Quilts contain organic seeds. The Spicy Daikon Radish Seed Quilt and Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt are currently the only organic seed offerings.
Can my pets eat the microgreens grown in my MicroGrow Kit?
Yes! The Sweet Wheatgrass is great for catgrass! The other Seed Quilt flavors we offer are primarily meant for humans, so do your research to see what kinds of microgreens your pets might like to eat too!
About Growing With Your MicroGrow Kit
How long does it take to grow microgreens in the MicroGrow Kit?
It's so fast! But it depends on the Seed Quilt you want to plant. For example, the Spicy Daikon Radish Seed Quilt takes only 7 days to grow, and the Super Salad Mix and Refreshing Cabbage Seed Quilts take only 10 days to grow.
Do Seed Quilts regrow?
No, one harvest per Seed Quilt. After you harvest, you'll compost the leftover Seed Quilt in your food and yard waste bin (industrial composting) and plant a new Seed Quilt.
Do I need to add more water as the plants grow?
Nope. We designed the MicroGrow Kit and Seed Quilts to make growing your own food THAT easy.
Do I have to harvest all my microgreens at once?
We recommend harvesting all your microgreens at once and putting what you don't eat right away in the fridge in a sandwich bag. Your microgreens will last a week like this! Alternatively, you can harvest a bit at a time over the course of a few days. If you take this route make sure to add a teeeny bit of water to keep the roots happy into this next stretch.
Do I have to use my Seed Quilts right away?
No. Your Seed Quilts are good for a year in their packaging. Just leave them in a cupboard until you're ready to plant in your MicroGrow Kit.
How much light does the MicroGrow Kit need?
Low light is enough, so don't worry if your place has been too dark for other plants. If you do have a sunny window, place the MicroGrow Kit next to it. If you don't, placing the MicroGrow Kit in a room with good overhead lighting will do the trick. Note that less light your MicroGrow Kit gets, the smaller the leaves will be - but don't worry - the flavor will still be there!
Are the white fuzzies by the seeds mold?
No. Those are actually little roots! If you see brown or black fuzzies, that could be mold however. It is very rare, but if your MicroGrow Kit happens to exposed to mold in your home, you could find mold on your microgreens. If you do see mold, don't eat that batch and thoroughly clean your MicroGrow Kit before planting a new Seed Quilt.
Do I remove the foam sheet from the Farm Kit before growing?
Yes. The foam sheet between the tray and white grid is only to protect from scratching during shipping. Remove before pouring water into the tray!!! Otherwise the foam sheet will get smelly, and that is no fun.
Is there anything in HAMAMA products that I could be allergic to?
People with allergies to soy, coconut, or corn should know that Seed Quilts contain these ingredients.Seed Quilt materials contain soy and corn. The Seed Quilt rests on a coconut fiber mat, which contains two ingredients: organic coconut husk and organic latex binder.
