Beetroot microgreens

When you think about healthy does beetroot comes to mind? Well, it should! Not only it is really amazing to watch the growings turn from red to green, but it’s delicious!

Step 1: Choosing seeds (Day 1)

instructions

Choose organic raw beetroot seeds.

Step 2: Medium and tray preparation (Day 1)

instructions

You can choose any tray you want: plastic, clay or wooden. For beetroot microgreens growing we will use soil and our signature tray. The ground layer in a tray should be about 3-4 centimeters. Sprinkle the soil.

Step 3: Planting (Day 1)

instructions

Scatter beetroot seeds thickly over the moist soil. Seeds should beautifully cover the ground, but not be one on top of another. Water them again with sprayer. Watering is needed every day. The earth should be neither dry nor too wet.

Step 4: Add vermiculite (Day 1)

A little trick that we like to use, is adding vermiculite. It keeps the moisture longer.

Step 5: Covering (Day 1)

instructions

Cover the tray with another tray or using a simple plastic wrap from your kitchen and make many small holes in it or use a special lid for microgreens growing until the seeds are sprouted. Beetroot seeds germinate best in a dark.

If you are using our LED shelf, do not forget that plants also need to sleep. Keep the lights on for 14-16 hours a day or just turn it off when you go to bed and turn on in the morning. Remember to water your plants. Best in the morning. Young sprouts should be sprayed and older plants should be sprayed and sprinkled.

Step 9: Harvesting and eating (Day 12)

instructions

On the 9th to 12th day of cultivation, fresh beetroot microgreens can already be enjoyed. We suggest you taste them every day and decide when the taste is the best for you. It is recommended to use kitchen scissors for cutting. Cut over the ground. You can cut them as much as you need for one day or cut them all and keep in the refrigerator like any other salad in a plastic bag or container.

Beetroot microgreens have a lot of good properties – great taste, light, and care-free cultivation, many vitamins and minerals but for me, the best thing about them is their BEAUTY. You can’t compare these microgreens to others because they look absolutely different. And it doesn’t matter if they are growing in our shelf surrounded by other greens or they are already in a dish– all the time all eyes are on them. So if you want to grow them as easy as I do – grab the highest quality organic beetroot seeds and get started.

Good luck!
