Harvesting & Care
Pocket Herbs microgreen pots are alive and living, giving you optimal freshness, flavour and crunch.
To best keep your microgreens, either place the pot on the windowsill in a shallow dish of water.
Alternatively, to make it easy to use your microgreens for your next meal or snack, you can harvest all of the pot(s) by trimming close to the media and store the trimmed microgreens in an air tight container in the fresh produce section of your refrigerator at 4 to 8 Deg C. When storing in a refrigerator please ensure the microgreens are dry; if damp, the microgreens could begin to degrade. Rinse before use.
How to care for potted microgreens
With proper care, your potted microgreens can last a number of days, providing you with fresh and nutritious greens for your meals.
Microgreens need to be kept moist, but not overwatered. Be careful not to let the soil dry out completely. It’s best to water them once a day or as needed.
Microgreens require bright, indirect sunlight to grow properly. Place your microgreens in a bright area of your home, such as a windowsill, but avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.
Good air circulation is important for the health of your microgreens. Make sure the area around the pot is well-ventilated to prevent fungal growth.
If you want to give your microgreens a nutrient boost, you can use a weak liquid fertilizer once a week. However, be careful not to over-fertilize as this can damage the plants too.
When your microgreens are ready to harvest, use clean scissors to snip the stems just above the soil level. Rinse the microgreens with water and pat them dry before using them.
