Hamama Hacks: #5 How to Store Unused Seed Quilts

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!😊

Hello Barbara! So happy that you are growing with us! :) All of our seeds quilts are grown in our Hamama Grow Tray. Our tray is specially designed to guarantee the optimal growth of the plants in the Seed Quilts. Without the tray, the seeds will very likely either get under or overwatered. I will include a link to the grow trays below: https://www.hamama.com/products/single-grow-tray

If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us!

I’m new to the whole seed quilt growing. I received just the seed quilts in wax paper. Instructions say to add water, soak seed quilt and cherish. Are they supposed to go in some kind of container?

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?
