Favourite way to enjoy sunflowers

I grow different types of microgreens just for my family's consumption and my favourite are always these fat sunflower ones. I enjoy them most specially on a toast with peanut butter and light drizzle of honey. How about you?

Mold?

Slow Bolt Arugula. I didn’t top water that much at all because the Arugula doesn’t seem to need as much as the others. 50/50 coco/organic soil. Any ideas what I did wrong?

Basil seedling leaves are yellowing

Plenty of light and I believe the watering is right. What else causes the seed leaves to yellow on Basil?

This is a newish crop to me and I haven't seen basil do this before. Everything was looking good until a few days ago and the growth has basically stopped? Could my thermostat be incorrect and keeping the room too cool?

Growing microgreens in Japan

Hi all,

pretty new to the community but got a question.

I'd like to start growing some microgreens at home, currently mainly interested in things like broccoli, radish, sunflowers and maybe others as well. I live in Japan, Tokyo area.

For those of you who don't know, Japanese homes generally are not well built. Means sealing is bad, air from outside can always come inside in some way.

My main concern is the weather and climate in Japan. Summer has a very wet season with high humidity, then temperatures get pretty high and winter is very cold and dry.

As mentioned, sealing of houses is bad, so the outside weather will always be reflected inside as well.

So my questions is, would I need to pay attention to something specific because of these conditions? Anything that will be a huge pain to grow? Maybe something that benefits from these conditions when growing?
Any tools I should look into, like dehumidifier, fans or something?

Any advice is appreciated!

Any idea why they got sad overnight?

Planted them on 6/19 and last night (6/24) they looked really really good and I was thinking I was going to harvest today but most of them have laid down and I have no idea why. This is only my second time trying to grow so anything helps

Edible flowers?

Has anyone taken the leap into the world if edible flowers? What are some of the easier ones to start with and what do you grow in?

Another WTH?!?

Another one of those “What am I doing wrong?” questions

Pulled from 2 days of blackout this morning and they looked great. Now this.

I am using ProMix HP w/Gaia Organic 4-4-4.

Previous batches were near perfect.

Aero garden Microgreens

Wondering if anyone has grown these in a hydrophonic indoor aero garden. Does it change efficacy of them. I grow other herbs and kale this way but haven’t tried these. Thanks so much.

Looking for trays to start small with reusable medium

As the title states, I would like to start with a few smaller trays along side my current hydroponic rail system. I’m having a hard time finding mesh trays that I can use the reusable medium with. I like the idea of the 5x5 trays because I think they will sit between my rails. Does anyone know of a source for the 5x5 mesh trays or something similar? Has anyone been successful with the Bootstrap holed and solid trays? I was afraid there wouldn’t be enough room for root growth.

sunflower yield per tray

Hi All, just grew my first sunflower tray and I harvested 670 grams / 23.6 oz. I know that's decent but I was watching a youtube video of a professional grower in Canada and he yielded avg 1,5kg / 52.9 oz and had a maximum of 2kg / 70.5 oz!!

anyone here ever had significantly yielded more than I did?

my set up and process: 4h soak 130 grams of black oil seed per tray 2 barina lights 6500k temperature 22 Celsius / 71.6 F humidity 58% germinated for 3 days then 6-7 days under lights bottom watered only under lights, but have seen donny greens doing topwatering first few days?

the guy that yielded 2kg / 70 oz mentioned btw that he only putted the sunflowers under light on day 9! anyone else got ant tips to yield more?

flavour was awesome btw.

thanks all!

Nutritional differences

What is the difference between sprouts in water and microgreens grown in water? Would they have the same nutritional profile?

Purple stemmed sunflower

Its my first time to use local Italian sunflower seeds and they produced microgreens with purple stems. Could it be just the kind of sunflower or is there could be something wrong?

First go at growing micros. Clover turned out just fine but my broccoli got unevenly taller and had smaller leaves in proportion to the height. Any tips would be appreciated 🙏

How to create/establish market share?

Howdy yall!! So, I'm still in school, but one of the "career plans" I've been devising involves utilizing microgreens' consistent (in CEA, and as-compared-to other CEA crops) production schedule and versatile uses.

I'm thinking I could certify a kitchen and start doing processing on-site as well, so potential MG products would include:

  • powdered "nutritional" supplements
  • freeze-dried MG for similar "nutritional" markets
  • fresh MG for farmers markets (open-top packaging)
  • 'fresh' MG for supermarket / local grocery (plastic/closed packaging)

Assuming I get all the ag, postharvest/FSMA certs I need, how does one actually go about finding people to sell these sorts of products to? Do those nutrional-supplement subscription services ever source their Greens from lil guys? Any and all insight/advice would be sick!! Trying to become financially independent:)

Are mustard sprouts as good for sulphoraphane as broccoli sprouts?

I can find organic mustard seeds for 3$ a pound at the local co-op but broccoli seeds online are 25$ a pound. I can only see that all cruciferous greens have sulphoraphane but broccoli has the highest amount, any idea if it equals with mustard greens? Ty

Profit in subscription+delivery sales approach?

I’ve seen several companies offering subscriptions for regular microgreens deliveries, or local pick ups.

Do any of you have personal experience or thoughts on the business approach?

Is it profitable after calculating cost of gas and vehicle maintenance?

Is it viable as the only sales approach or is it only supplement to farmers market/restaurants/stores?
