WHAT KIND OF TRAY DO YOU USE FOR MICROGREENS?
1020 Trays are best for microgreens planting. The durable shallow microgreen tray height is 3.2cm. This allows you to quickly and easily cut your microgreens as close to the roots as possible, which minimizes labor and maximizes your harvestable weight. If you are looking to brighten up your growing space, check out other popular deeper planting trays that come in two different sizes – 1020 Trays (deep or shallow) & 1010 Trays.
DO MICROGREEN TRAYS NEED HOLES?
Yes, to grow microgreens ideally you will need a tray with holes as well as a bottom tray. This can be one of our shallow microgreen trays with no holes or a 1020 deep tray like those used by EYM. Excess water in your microgreen trays can lead to mold. Growing trays with holes help drain extra water into the bottom tray. Eat Your Microgreens trays have drainage holes to remove excess water while being small enough to hold in growing media. Helping you prevent overwatering issues before they start.
