In this blog, I want to discuss the difference between root hairs and mould. It's something many of you get confused over and often mistake a beautifully germinated tray of microgreens for mould. That Fuzzy White Thing When you first open your microgreens to light after the black out period, you might see fuzzy white hairs growing on the stems of the microgreens (picture below).

One of the most common questions I get asked is on watering - when to water, how to water, how much to water. My response to that is almost always, "it depends". I say that because these questions don't come with enough information for me to provide an informed answer.  To understand how much water to give your microgreens, you first need to know the medium you are using to grow them. Different mediums may have different reactions to water and water retention capabilities. Also the particles in the medium come in different grades which will impact the amount of water it retains.

Are your microgreens ready to be harvested? When Do I Harvest? If they are, don't keep them growing in your trays. It is important to know when to harvest your microgreens. Keeping them growing well after their ideal harvest period will only reduce their flavour and even taste fibrous. Microgreens should be eaten raw so harvesting them at the right time is important, not only for their flavour but also to ensure that you get the right amount of nutrients with each growth. In Singapore, most microgreens grow quite quickly - within 5-10 days - after the germination period. This i ..read more
