What exactly is a Reusable Microgreen Grow Medium? And why should you care?? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like, reusable (shocker right?) and the good thing about reusable items is it helps you cut back on cost over time by making a one-time initial investment into the reusable item. In this case, we aren’t talking about reusable cups, reusable straws, or reusable bags – We’re instead discussing a grow medium that can be used time and time again, if you take care of it.
If you’re new to growing Microgreens or are an experienced grower, you may have noticed some things that can be time consuming or just flat out annoying when it comes to various steps of the microgreens process…. And let’s face it, the more efficient you can be – the better. Especially if you’re someone who has a TON of trays growing at once for selling at your market. Along with making things more efficient, if you can make it easier on yourself and/or your workers… that’s a
What are Microgreen Tray Clips and why did On The Grow create this product? The Microgreen Tray Clips are a Patent Pending product that our founder CJ Vaughn invented and created here at On The Grow® after we noticed a continuous problem of struggling to separate trays from each other every time we had to bottom-water our Microgreen crops or when we wanted to inspect our crops/roots. Because of the separation struggle, we noticed a recurring problem with our watering time tak
Hello, my name is Zach and I am the newest member of the On The Grow® Team!! In this blog, I’m going to share with y'all my side-hustle of growing and selling microgreens locally in Texas! I’ll discuss my grow setup, favorite Microgreen crops to grow, least favorite crops to grow and what I’ve found to be valuable wisdom in my growth so far from the perspective of a new grower and as a vendor! As someone who didn't know about growing prior to starting up, how did I find my wa
Making your own DIY growing units is not only fun but can save you hundreds of dollars, while earning you the bragging right of “I made that”. One great way to get started, especially if you are crammed on space, is by creating a Aeroponics Bucket system at home for growing and/or cloning plants, fruits, vegetables, and herbs! Best part is this build only takes 6 simple steps and a few parts from your local hardware to make it! First, if your unfamiliar with what Aeroponics i
If you are as big of a fan of Autumn, Fall or Halloween seasons like we are… then this blog was written for you! Growing microgreens inside of a pumpkin is such a fun and creative way to grow microgreens, and a great way to get your kids involved with growing at home! You can also apply this method to other fruits as well and grow microgreens in them! The fruit skin will act as the tray or pot that will hold the grow medium, and once the seeds have grown into microgreens, thi
Whenever it comes down to harvesting your Microgreens, there are two main ways most people go about it! You can grab you a pair of Scissors or a Sharp Knife! If you real fancy and can afford it, there is also a $560 “Quick-Cut Greens Harvester”, though I’d opt for a small set of hedge trimmers before going that route… Just make sure if you go the mechanical harvester way, that you use a food-safe oil to lubricate the friction points! In this blog, we are going to focus on Sci
If you’ve watched our YouTube channel before, you may have seen us using some trays that are smaller than the typical 1020 trays used for growing microgreens. So, what are these? Technically, they are called “sprouting trays” and aren’t actually meant for growing Microgreens, instead their meant to be used for “sprouting”. Since sprouting is a completely different method of growing, they do have some growing challenges to overcome in order to use these “sprouting trays” as mi
