Day 1 - Sunflower Chalange

Preparing Containers 

From Start To Finish

Each Mayonise Bottle will sprout enough seeds to fill one tray producing 1kg of Micro greens.
Each Bottle needs to have enough holes in the lid to drain the water during washing cycles and to air rate the sprouting seeds.

This method works fine in a very humid Richards Bay so I don't see a problem with it in the rest of South Africa.

Problems During Sprouting
Salmonella - Bacteria Contamination. Can only be cleared with high gene. This is achieved by washing the seeds multiple times thoroughly during the first 48 hours and after harvesting.
Fungal - Fungal Spores can be highly dangerous. Your sprouting seeds and sprouts need to be well ventilated.

Working Clean and Dry

It is of utmost importance to ensure your seeds are always kept dry and clean. Rodents love these tasty treats and will do great damage to get to them.

Mildew and Fungal Spores is your enemy during storage. One drop of water in your seed bin can damage all your seeds.
