The science behind microgreens

FAQ

Microplants are young, edible plants obtained through the rapid growth and early harvesting of seeds from vegetables, herbs, and other edible plants. They are characterized by their delicate leaves and stems, appearing as green and colorful microplants.

Microplants are grown in a controlled environment, such as in pots or trays, using soil or special substrates, and are exposed to light to stimulate the growth of green leaves. The growth period of microplants is short, typically between 7 and 21 days, depending on the type of plant.

Microplants are primarily used in the culinary industry to add an extra touch of color, texture, and taste to dishes. They are used as decorative and aromatic ingredients in a variety of foods, including salads, sandwiches, soups, sauces, and garnishes. Here are some common uses of microgreens:

Decorating and garnishing food

• Adding intense flavors

• Nutritional supplement

• Salads

• Sandwiches and wraps

• Sauces and dressings.

Growing microgreens is a simple and fun process that can be done indoors, at any time of the year. Here are the basic steps to grow microgreens:

• Choose the right seeds;
• Choose a suitable container;
• Fill the container with substrate;
• Sow the seeds;
• Moisten the substrate;
• Create a conducive environment for germination;
• Maintain the right temperature and light;
• Remove the cover;

Choosing the ideal production space allows a lot of flexibility. It’s enough to meet the optimal parameters necessary for the production of microgreens to benefit from the highest quality.

• A room of 8-10m2, a clean environment, a constant temperature between 20 – 22 degrees Celsius and relative humidity between 30 – 45%, is ideal for their growth.

• A source of electrical energy for powering LED lighting, ventilation, and irrigation of the Hy-Farm Microgreens system supplied. (daily consumption at maximum capacity, of 12 kWh)

• Nearby water source (network) (monthly consumption of less than 1m3).

Microplants and mature plants are different stages of a plant’s development. Here are some important aspects:

• Size: Microplants are plants in the early stages of development when they are still small in size.

• Structure: Microplants often consist of one or two embryonic leaves and a small stem, without complex branches.

• Functions and capabilities: Microplants are generally fragile and may require special conditions to survive and grow, such as growth mediums or mechanical support.

• Maintenance requirements: Microplants often have specific lighting, temperature, and humidity requirements that need to be carefully controlled to ensure their proper growth and development.

• Use: Microplants can be used in research, in the production of seedlings, or in the food industry as ingredients for salads or culinary dishes.

The lifespan of microgreens can vary depending on the specific species and growing conditions. Generally, microgreens are harvested and consumed before they reach full maturity. Thus, they are not meant to live and develop long-term as mature plants. However, they can last up to 7 days without issues, if storage conditions are respected.
