- 2 tablespoons broccoli microgreen seeds
- seed soil or potting soil
- Place the soil into the growing container until it reaches the rim. Pat gently to level it out.
- Spray the soil with water. Wait until it is absorbed, then spray again.
- Sprinkle the broccoli seeds evenly over the surface of the soil in a single, dense layer.
- Mist the seeds with water, then cover. Leave to germinate for 2 to 4 days, until all the seeds have sprouted.
- Remove the cover and expose the seeds to plenty of natural sunlight.
- Water the growing microgreens from the bottom as often as necessary to keep the soil consistently moist.
- Harvest the microgreens when they are a rich green color and 2 to 3 inches tall, between 7 to 14 days after sowing.
- Use non-GMO broccoli seeds, ideally those sold specifically for growing microgreens.
- For ease of harvesting, make sure your growing container is no more than 1 to 2 inches deep.
- Instead of soil you can use grow mats, coconut coir, or paper towels.
- After germination, always water your seeds from the bottom using a second tray beneath your growing tray.
- Ensure your broccoli microgreens receive plenty of natural light as they grow, preferably on a sunny windowsill. If you use a grow lamp, place them under it for at least 4 to 8 hours daily.
- For best results, try to maintain a room temperature of around 70℉ (21℃), with 50% humidity and adequate ventilation.
- Ensure you harvest all your microgreens once they are 2 to 3 inches tall and have two cotyledon leaves.
- Store unused microgreens in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in a plastic bag or airtight container.
