Growing with Hydroponics
Micro-Greens


Micro-greens are tasty little plants that are packed with flavor and nutrients. They're one of the fastest and most nutritious crops you can grow!

They grow in any climate and can be harvested 8-15 days after planting. With flavors that range from mild to intense to crunchy, they  add an extra dimension to salads, soups, and sandwiches.  

Micro greens are simply miniature versions of the same plants we grow in our gardens. The difference is micro-greens are harvested 8-15 days after planting when they're only 1-3" tall.

And no weeding or garden tools are necessary!

Why You Should Be Growing Micro-Greens


1. They're Easy to Grow

Microgreens are the easiest - and quickest plants you can grow! Simply plant the seeds and watch them grow! Any sunny windowsill will do.


2. No Special Tools Needed

Perfect for people who don't have the time or space for a garden. They can be grown indoors in a sunny window, outdoors on a balcony or covered porch, or in your kitchen under grow lights.

And with our system you can grow an incredible number of plants in a small space. 

3. Hydroponics Makes Growing Clean and Easy

Growing micro-greens in soil can be messy to work - especially on a windowsill or in your kitchen. 


Growing in soil


Watering these tender, young plants in soil can also be a real guessing game - and there's not much room for error. If the soil is too wet they rot at the base and fall over (called damping off). If the soil is too dry, they shrivel up and die from dehydration. Watering soil plants can be a tricky business.


Hydroponic Advantage

Our system creates a clean and green growing environment by replacing all that messy soil with a 100% natural jute fiber "Grow Mat".


100% Natural Jute Mat


By controlling the water and bacteria around the seeds, our Grow Mats create a clean growing area that's perfect for seeds to sprout. All you have to do is keep the mat moist and it takes care of everything else.

The miracle of seeds -  every seed contains all the food and energy it needs to burst out of its shell and grow its first leaves. Just add water.
