Hamama Hacks: #5 How to Store Unused Seed Quilts

Hi Hamama Friends!

When buying your Seed Quilts, you may wonder what to do with the Seed Quilts that you aren’t using right away. You may think they won’t last long, but indeed they do! :D
Here are a few tips to help you store your Seed Quilts properly.

 

  1. Storing your Seed Quilts:

Our ungrown Seed Quilts last well over a year & the best way to store them is in a cool, dark place like your pantry! Mainly, just watch out for prolonged exposure to heat & humidity while storing, as that may slightly lessen the seed’s viability.

  1. Store your Seed Quilts in our Bamboo Organizer:


Our beautiful Bamboo Organizer can store 9 Seed Quilts horizontally and 18 Seed Quilts vertically! It's also perfectly sized for the pantry, cabinet, or anywhere else you want to keep your quilts handy.

  1. Storing your Seed Quilts for longer than 6 months:

If you are planning on storing your Seed Quilts for more than 6 months, we recommend you consider storing them in your refrigerator! The Bamboo Organizer can go in the fridge, but the most common system is to keep a big supply in the fridge and move ones that you will use in the next couple months out to an accessible spot like your counter, kitchen cabinet, or pantry.

“This is how I personally store my Seed Quilts, in my Hamama Tote Bag inside my refrigerator!” - Carolyn Severin, Hamama Happiness Team Member.

  1. Store your Seed Quilts with your Bamboo Organizer on our NEW Grow Shelf!!

You can grow and store on our new shelves! Our shelves are easy to assemble and you can grow up to 6 Hamama Kits. Grow and store your greens in style!

  1. Stock up, save and store your greens!

Lastly, don’t forget to stock up on our bulk plans!

We have a great yearly plan where you get 36 seed quilts every 12 months!

With this plan, the more you order at once the more economical each Seed Quilt will be. You will have less deliveries, less packaging and have a nice variety of seed quilts to choose from!😊

Hi Ruth!

Great question! 💡 If you would like to cover them as they germinate, feel free to. Keep in mind though, good air flow is important as they begin to sprout, so be sure to allow for that and avoid covering the tray completely. The cool thing is that we have that all set up for your already with our Hamama seed quilts – the top paper keeps light out while still allowing some airflow during the germination period.

While storing the seed quilts, keep them in a cool, dry and dark place. These three attributes will keep the dormant seed quilts healthy until you decide to give them water, sun and warmth. Once you have fully soaked your tray well, the microgreen seedlings will begin to push upward under the quilt. At this point, you can tear off the top layer so they can begin to fully soak up the light in their environment. Light will not hurt them in this early process.

Happy growing & please reach out with any more fun questions that come to mind.

I’ve tried growing microgreens in flats with dirt. This is my first time using your seeds in the coconut fiber. Today is day 1. You don’t have us keep the tray in the dark for the first three days? Not necessary with this growing method?

HI Karen!

The Hamama system is designed to just add water once and harvest in about a week. However, there may be exceptions according to your growing environment.

Pre-peel you should never have to add more water. After peeling, the only time you may need to add more water is if you notice that the water has dropped below the tray’s ribs on the bottom. This is not common, however, if you live in a drier climate or have the heat on in your house, then you can add just a bit of water.

Here’s how:

With clean hands lift up the coconut fiber mat to check the level. If the water is still over the top of the ribs, then you’re good to grow! 🙌

If it’s receded a bit, then you’ll just add enough to fill back up to the top of the ribs, making sure that you never pour water directly on top of the greens/seed quilt itself. Pour the water into the side/corner of the tray. If water is added directly on top of the Seed Quilt, this could drown the greens, cause the seeds to become water-logged and also encourage growth of mold.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions! 🌱
