There is a lot of discussion about whether to grow microgreens in water or soil. Is it better to grow microgreens in soil or water? Is it better to plant broccoli on a vine or in the ground? Is it necessary to drain a seed before planting broccoli? All of these are valid questions. And they have good and valid answers.
Whether to grow microgreens in water or soil depends upon where they are going to be grown and how much sunlight they will get. Microgreens that are grown in a container garden are going to need more sunlight than a single plant of spinach. Microgreens like spinach will thrive with as little as 4 hours of direct sunlight per week. But if you are growing broccoli microgreens in a pot, you will need more than that – and probably more than ten hours per day of sunshine. So that’s why some people plant vegetables in pots – because they will get more sunlight than other plants.
But growing microgreens with fluorescent lights is a different story. As long as you place the pots in direct sunlight, there is no need to water them – and your plants will get all the sunlight they need. You should only water them when the soil is dry. It will also be important to place the fluorescent lights at least two inches away from the plants.
When it comes to growing spinach with micro-grows, the best thing to use for your planting is a good container gardening seed starting mix. These are designed to replicate the conditions that are found when seeds are growing in soil. That means that they will germinate quickly, and that they will produce big leaves with strong growth. They also come with instructions on how to prepare the soil so that the seeds will sprout as quickly as possible. It will take a few weeks until the micro-grows start appearing, but once they do, their growth rate is much higher than those of regular seeds.
So, is it better to grow microgreens in water or soil? Well, it really depends on the microgreen that you are growing. If you are growing micro greens that are very small, then you should be able to just plant them directly into the garden. But if you are trying to grow big and bushy microgreens, it might be better to go with a soil-based starter kit.
What are some other things to know about growing microgreens? There are certain months throughout the year when these plants will flower more readily than others. You need to know that these plants like a lot of sunlight, and they also prefer to have some sun during cooler days as well. They will also need a bit more sunlight than other plants during the summer months, because this is when they get larger. This is why it is good to plant them about two to three inches away from the edge of your sun blocking wall, or covering something with a glass or plastic shield.
