6 Easy Steps to Grow Alfalfa Microgreens
Soak Seeds (Recommended)
Soak Alfalfa Microgreens Seeds in cool water for 8-12 hours.
Prepare a Pot and Soil
Get a shallow growing tray - not more than 2 inches deep. Fill it with a seed starting potting mix. The soil level should be 1-2 inches.
Moisten the potting soil with water using a spray bottle. Gently sprinkle seeds evenly over the soil so they are close. Spray the surface of the soil and seeds with water again.
Place the tray in a spot away from direct sun exposure. Make sure the soil temperature is around 70°F. Avoid drafty spots. Moisten the soil with water using a spray bottle 3-4 times a day. Don't let the soil dry out, but also do not overwater it.
Once seeds start sprouting, make sure you are exposing the microgreens to at least 10 hours of daylight (use a grow light if there is not enough sun). Keep the soil moist.
In 5-12 days microgreens will be ready to harvest. When seedlings are 1 to 2 inches tall and have about two sets of leaves, snip and prep. However, you can grow them more or less by your preferences.
