5 Reasons To Grow Microgreens At Home

1) Microgreens are the most nutritionally-dense form of vegetable

Studies have shown that microgreens have 40 times the nutrients of vitamins C, E and K, lutein and beta-carotene than the mature leaves of the same plants.While mature vegetables are unmatched when it comes to fiber content, microgreens fill in all the other important gaps in your diet that are often overlooked. 

2) Microgreens have an intense and unique flavor

It shouldn’t take much convincing to get you or your kids to want to try microgreens - they’re delicious! Just as they are high in nutrients, they are also packed with intense flavors, complex taste profiles, and texture that enhance any meal.

3) Microgreens are plentiful and convenient

Most microgreens only take about a week (10 days at most) to grow, which makes it easy for you to frequently have them on hand. And when grown indoors, they are productive year-round if well cared for. 

Microgreens normally need both soil and sunlight to sprout, but with ingarden’s self-watering hydroponic growing system, all you have to do is place your seed pads and add water. It’s that easy to have freshness right at your fingertips!

4) With ingarden, growing is 100% hygienic without compromising style

At ingarden, quality meets style. Its self-regulating light + water and humidity control ensure optimal microgreen growth. And its ceramic base comes in 5 different colors, making it an elegant addition to your kitchen countertop.

5) Microgreens are versatile

With ingarden you can grow a wide variety of microgreens including broccoli, kale, radishes, and rare varieties like pak choi, mustard, and red cabbage. 

Microgreens not only add essential nutrients and color to your dishes, but are also great in juices, smoothies, salads, or sandwiches. Let your creativity run wild in the kitchen!

frequently asked questions

what nutrients do microgreens contain?

most microgreens have higher levels of vitamin c, beta-carotene, iron and potassium than their adult counterparts. in addition, they contain secondary plant compounds, antioxidants and enzymes.

these nutrients make them a perfect food supplement for athletes, people with weakened immune systems or vegetarians and vegans.

are all ingarden microgreens organic and GMO-free?

ingarden microgreens are organic and free from pesticides, herbicides, and GMOs. all of our professional-grade microgreens are sourced strictly from quality-trusted sources and have a guaranteed 95% sprouting rate.

how often should I clean my ingarden and is it dishwasher-safe?

cleaning your ingarden once a month ensures great microgreen quality and that you won’t run into the risk of unwanted odor. the ceramic bowl, trays, wick holders, tray holders, and wicks are dishwasher safe (max. 55 °C/131 °F temperature).

what type of water should I use for my ingarden?

tap water works great in your ingarden unless your tap water contains large amounts of chloramine used to purify it. You may also use distilled or spring water.

how and when do I replace my ingarden pads? what do I do with the old pads?

once your growing cycle is complete and you have harvested all of your microgreens, you can start growing new microgreens right away. simply compost your used ingarden pads, place new pads on your growing beds, and water completely until the new pads are saturated.

are there any optimal indoor temperatures for the growth?

depending on the type of microgreens, the optimal temperature for growth is between 15 and 22 °C (60 - 75 °F). microgreens love an even temperature, that's when they develop fastest. at higher temperatures, bacteria and fungus can flourish while your seedlings dry out faster. at lower temperatures, the plants can absorb less water and develop more slowly, and you could have problems with mold.

how long can I leave the ingarden unattended

it is best practice to leave ingarden to grow for 7 days. after day 7, we recommend harvesting your microgreens within 3-5 days. once you have harvested, simply refill your ingarden with water and add new ingarden pads.

where do the seeds come from?

our seeds come from the region of emilia romagna in italy as well as the netherlands. ingarden seeds are strictly from trusted and certified organic growers, meaning our seeds are confirmed organic by accredited authorities who check that no artificial fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides are used.

every batch of seeds is tested by laboratories for their microbiological safety according to HACCP standards. all seed batches are tested for germination rates guaranteed at 90%, as well as for their look and integrity. the seeds are only handled by certified organic manufacturers who avoid cross contamination and maintain the highest standards of hygiene.

what is the difference between microgreens and sprouts?

many people think they are the same thing, but they are not. of course they all have something in common, but there are also many differences.

sprouts are seedlings from seeds that have not yet developed roots and have not yet completed photosynthesis. sprouts, on the other hand, are plants that have already developed roots and are therefore larger than shoots.

microgreens are small-leafed plantlets that are usually used as toppings for soups, salads or other dishes. they have a very intense flavor and often also a special color. while sprouts are often eaten at a very early germination time, microgreens have more time to grow and more time to develop nutrients and flavor.for this to succeed, they need either soil or a corresponding mat of flow from which the nutrients can be drawn, as well as water and sunlight, of course. microgreens are then harvested a little later after about 5-7 days and eaten without the root. the flavor is much more intense than sprouts and the nutrient content is many times higher.
