Cultivation tips for Cress microgreens seeds:

  • No seeds soaking is needed.
  • Don't worry about drenching before planting– just keep their growing medium moist by lightly watering. Every seed will draw in the moisture it needs from its surrounding soil and enclose itself in a special hydration gel pouch. There's no need to water again until germination starts - that little jelly pouch has got you covered! 
  • To make sprouting even easier, use our coconut coir as your growing substrate. This natural material is ideal for retaining moisture and providing the perfect amount of drainage - so you can cultivate your cress seeds with ease! 
  • Germination phase: 3-4 days.
  • The ideal time to harvest cress microgreens is when the leaves have fully opened and grown to 3 inches in height - usually occurring between days 5-9 of growth.

They get way to sticky in soil making such a mess of dirt on top of them, as you can see in the store pictures they have some dirt on the top of the leaves and in the stems, growing them myself twice they just kept on growing like that in coco coir, seems these must be grown in jute/coco fabric in order to make a clean harvest without dirt in it, which is rather expensive I prefer reusing my coco coir as much as possible as is the cheapest and most environment friendly choice. This one is quite flavourless too, is good to just add some nutritional value with a very subtle flavour which can not be really noticed, but broccoli is way preferred as the seeds are cheaper, gives way better higher yield, has way more nutritional value and way better flavour, you are only getting around 100g in a 10x20 tray, even if this seed is considered "spicy" it has nothing to do with the flavour of radish microgreens is just very subtle flavour. I just think other seeds in the store are way better than this variety.
