1) Lay Mats in 1020 Tray

  1. Remove one ReNu Terra mat form the packaging, and lay it flat in your 1020 insert.
  2. Place your 1020 tray in your intended growing location.
  3. Pour water into tray; we recommend 8.5 cups (2L) of water into it.

2) Wet the mats

Keeping your mat lying flat in the 1020 insert, wet the ReNu Terra mat until it looks fully saturated.

3) Seeding

  1. Evenly sprinkle your seeds over the wet mat. See quantity as recommended by your manufacturer.
  2. Thoroughly wet the sown seeds with water.
  • Classic mats -  Ideal for
    microgreens & leafy greens.
  • Large Seed Format mats - Ideal for deeper
    rooting plants like spinach & baby greens.

4) Germination

  1. Place the tray cover over stacked tray and do not touch for 2 days.
  2. After 2 days,, check to see if your seeds are fully germinated. Fully Germinated seeds have produced a root and the first leaf.
  3. If fully germinated, remove the lid.

If seeds are not fully germinated, spray with more water, replace cover and check again in 1 day.

5) Irrigation

  1. Maintain moisture by checking the tray daily. Aim for about a half an inch of water, and top off with more water as needed.
  • If you want to grow your microgreens longer than one week after germination, be sure to apply fertilizer.
  • In our testing, for best results, we irrigated every 12 hours with a hydroponic fertilizer wolution at an E.C. of 1.0 ds/m and a pH of 6.0

6) Harvesting

  1. Pull the mat out of its 1020 flat and lay flat on a solid surface.
  2. Use a knife or scissors to carefully cut the microgreens at the stem, just above the mat (about 1 inch from the mat). Harvest all the microgreens at once.
  3. Lay your harvested greens on paper towels and tamp them to dry.
  4. Place the microgreens in your storage container(s) and refrigerate until consumption.
  5. Consume within one week of harvesting.
  6. DIscard the used mat

7) Eat Your Greens!
