Thanks for your purchase! We want you to get the most out of your microgreens, so we wrote this quick care guide for you. If you follow a few simple instructions on how to take care of your microgreens, you can expect a 6-9 days shelf life which is typical of most produce.
Your microgreens should be stored in a refrigerator to keep them as fresh as possible. We suggest leaving them in the container they arrived in. Once every 3-4 days, remove the microgreens pad from the container and inspect them. If the grow pad seems dry and the microgreens are wilting, they need to be watered. Place the grow pad on a dinner plate or bakeware pan. Pour some filtered or bottled water into the plate/pan and wait a few minutes for the grow pad to absorb the water. Then you can return the microgreens to its original container and put them back in the refrigerator. This will re-hydrate the grow pad and enable your microgreens to drink up the water to stay hydrated which prolongs its shelf life. If the grow pad is still moist after 3-4 days and the microgreens aren't wilting, you don't need to water them. Remember… Do not top water your microgreens. They drink from their roots.
