Our self watering microgreen Grow to Eat kits are being used in many restaurants and resorts globally. We are offering a starter kit w our self watered trays, coir growing media and seeds. Each tray is approx 5"x7" so they take up minimal space. The kit also includes a 4 unit grow light LED system w dimmer and timer that we use to grow microgreens. Versatile mounting hardware will allow you to mount the lights on most any rack you make or simply buy off the shelf (grow rack pictured is NOT included, but we use wire shoe racks ... the mounts will let you put on most shelf surfaces)
This kit contains 30 self watering growing trays (reusable), enough supplies to grow out 100+ trays of a basic salad microgreen mix (broccoli, kale, arugula, kohlrabi, cabbage), sprayer head (place on plastic bottle) for moistening the seeds for initial germination, seed spreader for ease of seeding and a small micro scale for weighing out proper amount of seeds. The mix will yield a crop as pictured in 7-12 days of growth depending on your lighting and other conditions.
The growing trays and tank are reusable and have proven to be extremely durable. You can grow out 2-4 trays of microgreens per day with supplies for 30+ days of continuous daily production. We have found that a minimum of 2 trays per day is great for a starter use. It will take approx 20 mins per day to plant and oversee the plants. Once the first trays are harvested, you would replant two trays per day along with maintaining the trays (simple visual examination of the water tank will enable you to ensure proper hydration).
The display rack highlighted in the picture was constructed as a grow rack for the trays. Rack capacity is 12 trays so you can increase production easily. It takes anywhere from 7 - 12 days to grow out your crops so scheduling the plantings will depend on your needs. We will also guide you setting up and running the business and discounts on future purchases as you grow your business. Support will always be available via the internet.
Large installations like the Andaz Delhi (as pictured) have several hundred trays going at once that allows their chefs to have access to the finest nutrition and visual components for their customers. You can add our micro farms in any free space indoors or out. Join the microgreen nutrition revolution and up the bar for nutrition and visual highlights to your dishes!
