2 Special Mentions – Indoor Microgreens Starter Kits
These two kits are not strictly herbs only. With these microgreens kits, you can choose between growing miniature herbs or miniature vegetables. Both kits are compact, pretty looking, and come with everything you need to get started with growing microgreens indoors without soil.
Microgreens are super easy to grow at home and they have a short harvesting time so you don’t have to wait too long to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The Hamama Microgreens Growing Kit is designed around a unique concept. It comes with a grow tray and seed quilts that contain the microgreens seeds. You can choose any three seed quilts with your quilt.
To grow your microgreens, just fill water into the grow tray and place the seed quilt into the tray on the water. That’s all you need to do. Next step – harvesting. Your microgreens will be ready to harvest in about 7 days.
If you want to keep growing microgreens, you just need to buy the seed quilts of your choice and use them in the same tray. No need to buy the entire kit.
The second microgreens grow kit is the Sectional Hydroponic Microgreens Starter Kit by True Leaf Market.
This kit is slightly different in that it is designed to grow eight varieties of microgreens at one time. This is ideal for anyone who loves the delicate flavor of microgreens but prefers a wider variety.
This microgreens starter kit comes with micro-mat hydroponic grow pads which expand to fit snugly into the base of the trays. With this kit too, you don’t have to buy the entire set up if you want to keep growing microgreens. You can save by buying just the grow pads and using them in the same trays.
