Coconut soil swell

1. place a coconut soil brick in your Grow-Grow Nut and moisten it with a slightly turned up water jet. Please only add small spurts of water at a time. Note: In rare cases, the coco soil bricks are very heavily pressed. In this case, we recommend soaking one brick in a separate container with 250ml of lukewarm water for 2-3 minutes and then distributing the soil evenly in the Grow-Grow Nut .

2. the coconut soil brick swells in a few minutes, then you can carefully press the soil to a flat surface. Tip: The tips of your fingers or a glass base are suitable for this. It is important that the surface is as flat as possible so that the seed can be distributed nicely.

Select seed

3. now place your Grow-Grow Nut on a shallow dish.

4. select seed variety and spread evenly on the soil, then lightly press the seeds and moisten with a hand sprayer from above. Pour off any remaining water.

Cut out cover

5. cut a cover from your Grow-Grow Nut package and place it on the tray to allow the seeds to germinate in the dark and better maintain humidity.

Leave at room temperature until the seedlings push up the cover (after about 2-3 days). Now remove the cover and place the Grow-Grow Nut in a bright place (preferably no direct sunlight for the first few days).

Check humidity

Check the humidity daily and water your Grow-Grow Nut as needed: Place in a bowl or deep dish with water for 5-10 min (fill height about 2 cm).

After about 6-8 days you can harvest your Microgreens . Recommendation: Cut with scissors just above the root (do not eat the roots and soil).

Bon appétit!

Oh, what's that?!

Don't worry, these are the so-called "micro-roots", which are part of the germination process and are completely harmless!

Mold usually forms in one place and spreads from there, micro-roots sprout everywhere virtually overnight.
