As promised, here are first shots of our 4 day old crop of broccoli microgreens. We started these on Sunday, so we are technically at a little over 4 days, but you can see the crop progressing. You can compare the results vs other broccoli shots we have done previously and it appears at this point that there is no significant difference in the performance and growth using this smaller tray. Again, this is a tray we call mini bento or sushi tray here in Hawaii. This tray is probably known throughout the world as a sushi tray and should be easily obtainable. The mini kit will have one tray and lid along with seeds and media for four different crops.
The second photo shows the tray with expanded media disk in it. The water level in the glass is the approximate amount of water to be added to the disk to hydrate it. Once hydrated, take half and put it in the bag the disk came in for second planting. The kit will include 2 disks which is enough for four crops in the tray.
Tomorrow we will harvest our first micro crop from the containers we highlighted yesterday.
