MicroFarm from Mother, to easily grow your own microgreens!
Join the MicroGreen Revolution! Harvest microgreens at home, like a professional indoor farmer. Microgreens taste just like their full grown plant! Yet, they contain up to 40x more vital nutrients, and are super easy to grow.
Each harvest yields 250grams and you can get 2 harvests per week(two growing trays included).
The kit contains a 14w full-spectrum LED grow-light. Ideal growing temperature 20 degrees celsius. Give the microgreens 12-14 hours of light every day.
Mother chooses to grow their microgreens on paper towel due to its global accessibility, cleanliness, and because it is compost-friendly (although not if it has printed graphics; please consider making a change!). In professional kitchens, chefs cannot have dirt or soil in their work area; it would be unhygienic. Paper towel is the cleanest way to grow microgreens.
However, using other types of grow mediums could provide different advantages. This is why their system design is open, so you are able to experiment with different types of media. They test their seeds using paper towel, but they can also be grown on hemp fiber or in potting soil.

Microgreens are the seedlings of leafy greens, vegetables, and herbs. They grow approximately 2.5–7.5 cm (1-3 inches) tall, in only 7-10 days. In general, microgreens have a stronger, more intense flavour than that of their mature counterparts. With full-grown plants, you would usually only eat their leaves or fruits; with microgreens, you eat the stem and the leaves, taking in the maximum amount of nutrients that are contained within each seed. The vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels measured in microgreens, are up to 40 times higher than those recorded for mature, fully grown vegetables or herbs. While their nutrient contents vary slightly, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and beta carotene.
Microgreens are endlessly versatile – they can be used to create supersalads; as main ingredients, toppings or garnish; in sauces, dressings, spreads and dips; and even in smoothies.
