Description

Soak: No. you don’t need to soak before you plant.
Rinse/drain: This isn’t necessary, you simply need to keep the soil moist.
Time to germinate: You’ll see signs of growth within 2-3 days.
Time to harvest: They’ll be ready within 5-14 days
Step 1 – Prep Your Growing Space

You’ll need a growing tray, 10×20 is a good size to start with. It is also important to have the right growing medium; you want to be able to keep it moist.

Use your preferred potting mix. You can also use coconut coir.

You only need a thin layer of soil, unless you’re planning on growing bigger plants. The deeper the growing medium, the larger the roots can grow.

Step 2 – Planting

You should sprinkle roughly 4 teaspoons of cabbage seeds across your 10×20 tray. Make sure the growing medium is in place first and is moist.

It’s a good idea to cover the tray for the first 2 or 3 days and keep them where the temperature stays between 60° and 70°F.

Step 3 – Growing & Watering

Germination should happen within 2-3 days. During these first days, you simply need to keep the soil moist. However, after the plants start to flourish you’ll need to drench the growing medium every day. If you don’t have drainage in your tray then pour the excess water off; you don’t want to drown your plants!

After germination has occurred it’s a good idea to remove the cover and place the tray somewhere it will get plenty of natural light. You must make sure the soil stays moist.

Step 4 – Harvesting

After between 5 and 14 days you can harvest your cabbage microgreens. It is important to note that the flavor changes daily; a little trial and error will be necessary to get your own perfect taste.

The plants should have open green leaves, this shows they are ready to harvest. Stop watering for between 8-12 hours to reduce the moisture content of the plants. Then, cut them just above the growing media and enjoy.

It’s best to enjoy them fresh, if possible.
