Sunflower microgreens are one of the most popular types of microgreens grown.



It is crunchy, pleasantly nutty, and slightly sweet in flavor, making it a great choice for almost any salad mix. Even kids love to snack on it too. Sunflower microgreens can be grown on both the hydroponic medium or in the soil. Even easier, you can soak the seed in a jar for about 8-12 hours, you will see some seeds are sprouting and you can then transfer them to the soil.

If you use the raw hulled seeds, sanitize them properly and rinse them a few times more. That’s to prevent and reduce mold formation. Keep it in the dark for a longer period if you want them to grow taller before exposing them to the light. Also, Sunflower requires more light than others, which otherwise the growth will suffer.
