Pak Choi microgreens

Hello, my dear gardeners,

Today you will learn how to grow pak choi microgreens. Their seeds are almost smallest from all brassica family and that’s why microgreens are so tiny but it doesn’t impact their taste. It is powerful and remarkable. Also, it is really easy to grow them so I am not going to accept any excuses for not trying to grow pak choi on your own. Let’s begin!

Step 1: Choosing seeds (Day 1)


Choose organic raw pak choi seeds.

The seeds are very small so you don‘t need to soak them. Of course, soaking may speed up the germination process but just because of the small size it would be difficult to spread wet seeds evenly on soil (wet seeds stick to your hands and that is annoying).

Step 2: Medium and tray preparation (Day 1)


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

Step 3: Planting (Day 1)

Scatter pak choi 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: 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 special lid for microgreens growing until the seeds are sprouted. Pak choi seeds germinate best in a dark.

Step 5: Checking humidity level and progress (Day 2-3)

Check the moisture level daily.

Step 6: Uncovering (Day 4)

After 2-4 days, when kale starts to grow, take off the lid and move the tray onto a sunny window sill or a LED shelf.

Step 7: Growing and watering (Day 5-7)


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. 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 8: Harvesting and eating (Day 8)


On the 8th to 12th day of cultivation, fresh pak choi microgreens can already be enjoyed. We suggest you to 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.

A little bit more than a week passed and you can enjoy fresh pak choi microgreens. I put them on top of almost all the meals I have. Pak Choi microgreens add really nice flavor and exceptional look for my dishes.

So if you want to have the best possible growing experience I highly recommend to try our organic pak choi seeds which you can find here.

Good luck!
