It's that time of the year again - Summertime!
As the days are longer, temperatures are warmer, and humidity is up, it’s important to re-calibrate the care we give our microgreens. Think about how you’d apply sunscreen and drink more water during the hotter days - well depending on where you live, your greens might also need a little extra TLC for this hot weather! Let’s take a look at watering, lighting, tray placement, and a few helpful tips to give your greens a healthy growing environment during this warm weather season. 🌞😅
STORING YOUR UNGROWN SEED QUILTS:
- Our ungrown Seed Quilts less well over a year if stored properly. It is important to think about where you store your quilts in the hot summer months, especially if you have a large supply.
- The best storage spot for your ungrown Seed Quilts is someplace cool, dry & dark (like your pantry if not too hot/humid in the summertime)
- If you plan on storing your Seed Quilts for more than 6 months, try storing them in your refrigerator! 🧊
PLANTING YOUR SEED QUILT / INITIAL SOAKING:
- Both our black plastic and white ceramic grow trays are marked for how much water should be added to initially soak your Seed Quilt. The black Grow Trays should be filled so that the water level reaches the bottom of the fill line and the ceramic tray to the indentation ridge. When filled correctly, the small ridges at the base of the tray should ideally prevent you from completely submerging the quilt while still providing an even soak.
