  • Assemble microgreen tray frame (9) to the watering unit (5) with the pump (3). It is important that the watering holes (10) are aligned.
  • Add mesh plates (8) and seeds. Microgreen tray is divided to four sections and inside one bag you’ll find four (4) smaller, brown bags, one (1) to be used for each section. You can use different seeds in each section!
  • Add one height block (2) and light unit (1)
  • Plug in the device.
  • Cover microgreens. Use the covers (7) for the first two-three days to help to keep optimal moisture for germination.
  • To start growing use pumping mode. Hold your hand on top of the light hat for 10 seconds. The light will blink twice, turn to violet and then to blue and you hear the pumping beginning. You don’t need to repeat this later.
  • During the pumping, check that the water rises to the Mesh plate and seed get watered. * The seed will float in this point, but they will grow roots attach to the mesh in few days.
  • Harvest and in enjoy in 7 to 14 days.
  • When harvesting lift Mesh plates of the tray and cut stems 1 cm above the growth surface with scissors or sharp knife and enjoy! You can use Covers as serving trays for the Mesh plates.
