You can choose any tray you want: plastic, clay or wooden. For rocket 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.

Scatter broccoli 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 3: Covering (Day 1)


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. Broccoli germinate best in a dark.

Step 4: Checking humidity level, progress and uncovering (day 3-4)

Check the moisture level and progress daily. Due to the season, the broccoli growth may speed up or slow down a little.

After 3-4 days, when broccoli starts to grow, take off the lid and move the tray onto a sunny window sill or our stylish microgreens growing shelf.

Step 5: Growing and watering (Day 5-8)

If you are using our shelf with grow LED lights, 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. Do not forget to water your plants. Best in the morning. Young sprouts should be sprayed and older plants should be sprayed and sprinkled.

Step 6: Harvesting and eating (Day 9)


On the 7th to 12th day of cultivation, fresh broccoli 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.

It is one of the most popular plants for indoor gardening in the world. People like it because of neutral taste and healing properties. Usually, people are sprouting broccoli seeds but microgreens growing is always a better idea. You get a bigger harvest and more nutrition value from microgreens comparing to sprouts. And if you will follow all the steps above you will succeed. So grab the seeds, trays, the shelf and start growing at home.

Good luck.
