Hamama Hacks: Mix-and-Match Harvests

Hamama Hacks: Mix-and-Match Harvests

Want to mix up your Hamama harvest? Whether you live alone and consume less, can’t agree on what flavor to plant, or just need a little fiesta in your Hamama tray, here’s a Hamama hack for you! It’s as easy as 1-2-3!


To grow multiple varieties in one tray simultaneously (or to just grow a smaller amount), just carefully cut the Seed Quilt in quarters or halves between the seed cells. You want to be careful to avoid cutting directly into or close to the seed cells

Ready for some quick math? The 16 cells are best cut the short distance from top to bottom. Here are the fun combos for cutting to mix-and-match:

  • ¼ + ½ + ¼ 
  • ½ + ½ 
  • ¼ + ¾ 

Onto the best part: choosing your winning combinations! Some of our favorite pairings are:

  • Super Salad Mix + Refreshing Cabbage = Purple Salad
  • Hot Wasabi Mustard + Hearty Broccoli = Kickin’ Broccoli 
  • Zesty Mix and Hot Wasabi Mustard = Ultra Zesty
  • Broccoli + Kale + Cabbage = Ultimate Smoothie Blend
  • Radish + Clover = Zippy Soup, Salad & Sandwich Blend



You’ll want to plant your Seed Quilt pieces at the same time! Why? Great question! The water levels vary throughout the growth cycle as your little greens drink up the water. Also, if you just can’t consume a whole Seed Quilt during each growing cycle, you can always just plant half of one at a time!




As your Seed Quilts grow, you’ll be able to munch on two, three, or four different flavors all from the same tray! No need to fight over which flavor is up next!



Once you’ve cut your Seed Quilt, just tuck the other section(s) (and label!) back into the packaging and save for your next batch! Remember, our ungrown Seed Quilts last well over a year, and the best way to store them is in a cool, dark place like your pantry! 🙂 Cool temps & dry air are best (ideal temperature of 50º F at 50 percent humidity)! Mainly, just watch out for heat/humidity/sunlight exposure while storing as that can lessen the seed’s viability.


Not up for a cutting challenge yet? We also have a Super Salad Mix and a Zesty Mix that include a variety of different seeds in one Seed Quilt! The Super Salad Mix is broccoli, kale, arugula, kohlrabi, cauliflower, and cabbage. The Zesty Mix is the same but with mustard instead of cauliflower!

Thanks for sharing your set-up with us Amber!! 
Great Combo, Jan!

wow very helpful info!


Hi Billie!

You would still fill the tray to the fill line (about 3 cups of water) for the initial soak. Make sure your 1/2 quilt is placed properly on the tray’s bottom ribs, near the center of the tray. If you notice that the water level is at or above the Seed Pockets, you can pour a little water out. An ideal level after the initial soak is at or slightly above the middle of the brown coconut mat :) Hope this helps!

When soaking a half bag of greens; how much water should I use?

Billie McQuerry

Although I bought my kit last September, ‘fear of failure’ and a 50+ year history of ‘black thumb’ with houseplants had me procrastinating, even though I am on autoreorder every 35 days. After a discussion of ‘fof’ in several areas, my adult daughter challenged me this past Friday to just do it and report back to her in an hour. I took the crazy way out and started 1/4 tray each of cabbage, clover, daikon radish, and zesty salad mix. Day 3 and they are germinating, puffing up the seed bags! I am very excited and encourage other senior fraidy-cats to just jump in!!


I’m the only to eat the greens, so I would like to only do 1/2 a sheet at a time. Do I still fill the tray full of water or are there other adjustments needed to make sure I get good growth and not overwater? Thanks for your help!
