Sunflower microgreens are one of the easiest seeds to grow in Singapore and offer an abundance of health benefits. They are incredibly tasty eaten as snacks on their own and can transform even the most ordinary of salads, sandwiches or wraps into a presentation that is equally impressive and nourishing.
To grow sunflower microgreens in Singapore, follow the steps below or watch our video attached. You will need approximately 8 grams of seeds for our 12 x 12cm trays.
Step 1 - Thoroughly wash seeds in water
Step 2 - Soak seeds in water for a minimum of 2 hours
Step 3 - Drain water and dry seeds using paper towel
Step 5 - Spread sunflower seeds evenly onto potting mix ensuring each seed has contact with soil
Step 6 - Spray water again on seeds to ensure they are lodged to the soil
Step 7 - Cover the seeds from light and add weight (as shown in video) for 3-4 days. Do not open or water seeds during this black out period.
Step 8 - After Day 3, check if seeds have germinated (if not, wait another day). If they have, uncover, spray water, and place in an area with natural light. Make sure you water the tray on a daily basis, twice a day if the weather is warm and humid. Your sunflower microgreens will be ready for harvest after 3-4 days.
