How to use Microgreens Growing Trays?

What size and Tray should you choose?

Before selecting the appropriate size for your growing trays, consider a few crucial factors:

  • storage space available,
  • ease of handling.

What's the right depth for your tray?

As for the depth of the growing trays, it doesn't have to be overly deep when growing microgreens. A 4-7 cm deep trays works well.📏 Micro leaves don't need much root space, growing to about 5-7 cm, making them easy to cut. If the tray is too deep, harvesting micro leaves might pose a challenge, but it's manageable by removing the substrates along with the microgreens. It's essential to consider the types and varieties you're cultivating, adapting the trays to your convenience and growing system.


Does every planting tray require holes?

Not every growing tray has to have holes. Whether they're needed depends on what you're growing and how you're growing it. Holes in trays are essential for draining excess water💦 from your microgreens, but you can also grow plants on trays without holes. They can serve as a base for trays with holes or act as a cover for your crop during blackout periods.🌚

At MP Seeds, you have the option to choose trays with or without holes, giving you the freedom to select the ones that best suit your crop needs.

Frequently asked questions

How many seeds per tray for microgreens?🤔

There is no one right answer to this question. The ideal number of seeds to sow in a tray varies, primarily determined by the size of the seeds. A general guideline is that larger seeds, such as Pea Foxy, require fewer in a 10x20 tray—around 250g, to be precise. Conversely, smaller seeds like Rape need a modest 22 grams. It's crucial to consult the specific variety descriptions before embarking on your microgreens planting journey.

To simplify the process for you, MP Seeds has taken the guesswork out of growing microgreens. We provide detailed information on the required seed quantities for a standard-sized tray.

This ensures a seamless experience, allowing you to cultivate each microgreens variety with confidence. 


Is it necessary to cover my microgreens trays?

Again, the answer to this question is: "It depends." By covering your growing tray with another tray, you provide your plants with a period of blackout.🌚 In this case, you can safely use a tray without holes as a convenient cover. 



Finding the suitable trays for your own cultivation can be a challenging task given the multitude of options available. Nonetheless, we trust that our guide will assist you in finding the ideal trays and pots for your urban farm, ensuring they fulfill all your criteria. Keep in mind that, beyond durability, the crucial factor is that the tray meets your expectations and facilitates a plentiful and flourishing harvest of your microgreens.
