Where to Place Your Microgreens Tray
Your microgreen sprouts will be perfectly happy in a room with indirect sunlight. Keeping your tray at room temperature about 60 ~ 75 °F is ideal.
Your microgreen trays do not need to be in direct sunlight. In fact, direct sunlight can burn them or dry the growing medium out, even in the winter time. If you’re planning on placing your microgreen in your window sill be sure to draw the blinds or cover the window with a tissue paper or other light diffusing material.
For longer “leggy” greens you can even grow them in dark areas, which causes them to grow tall as they search for sunlight. In the video, you’ll see that this is what happened with our corn shoots.
You can also grow them under growing lights. Most garden centers will have growing lights. Because we were in an office and didn’t have a lot of natural light we grew ours under a grow light.
