Microgren Kits
  • What Is in my Grow Kits ?
    Small Grow Kit: Contains 1 Coconut Bowl, 3 Seed Packets (1 Radish, 1 Clover, 1 Kale) and 3 Soil Packets Large Grow Kit: Contains 3 Coconut Bowls, 12 Seed Packets (4 Radish, 4 Clover, 4 Kale) and 12 Soil Packets
  • How long can I wait after ordering, to plant my Immature Greens?
    According to our testing, the kit is safe to plant for up to 6 months, however this answer is entirely dependant on the temperature and humidity of the storage area you will keep your kit in. To be safe, if you cannot plant right away, please check your soil for mould before planting. Since the soil in the packets is mildly damp, that can ( based on in-house testing ) develop mould in around 5-6 months. The seeds should be safe to plant and grow for years if stored in a cool dry place. The coconut bowls will last indefinitely with good care.
  • I have used up all the soil and seeds, and still have the coconut bowls. Do I have to buy a kit again?
    No. Once you have used up your seeds and soil, we offer a refill. This refill is either for a small or large kit, depending on which one you would like to continue using. Please see "Home Kits" Page under "Grow Kit Refills"
  • I have my kit, now what?
    Please follow the step by step grow instructions at the top of this page. Disclaimer: If you decide to make your own watering bottle using the video as a guide, Immature Garde cannot take responsibilty for any injuries sustained during this process. Correct tools and protective equipment is essential to ensure your safety. The hot needle can become a serious burn hazard, as well as a puncture hazard. Consider safety before attempting. Handle with care at all times, and plan your next step to avoid injuries.
  • Why does the kit not contain a watering solution?
    When developing the kit, we looked far and wide for the perfect watering tool. The stream of water has to be heavy enough to reach the soil, so we could not use spray bottles, and light enough, so that they don't weigh on the fragile greens. There are a few tools online that accomplish this, however all of them are either made of plastic, or extremely expensive. For a long time we have used the punctured bottle cap method ourselves, because that was the perfect consistency of watering, and thought that our customers would enjoy the DIY process, while promoting the upcycling of materials they are likely to have at home. If you wouldn't like to create your own watering can, please reach out to us using the on site forms, chat etc. and we will make sure we help get you the right solution.
  • How do I store my seeds?
    Seeds should be stored in a cool, dry environment at all times. If done correctly, your seeds should last for years, however, for the best results, we recommend planting your seeds as soon as you get them, and subsequent packets, as soon as possible.
  • Can I plant my own seeds and grow microgreens from store bought packets?
    It is not recommended to use store-bought seeds meant for planting in gardens or landscaping for growing microgreens intended for consumption. Microgreen seeds are carefully selected, cleaned, and tested to ensure they are safe for consumption. Using seeds that are specifically designated for microgreen production is essential to ensure food safety and the highest quality of microgreens. Even among microgreen seeds, we have spent almost 5 years finding the best of the best seeds, that we are proud to present to you.
  • Can I use my own compost to plant the seeds in?
    It is not recommended to use regular compost for planting microgreen seeds unless it has been properly processed and tested to ensure it is free from contaminants. Microgreens are grown in a controlled environment, and using clean, sterile soil or growing medium is essential to prevent the risk of contamination and ensure the safety of the microgreens for consumption. We have sourced and lab tested the soil to be the cleanest possible solution for our customers.
  • Are your seeds organic?
    We only purchase organic certified seeds, however, we do not pursue an organic certification, so we will not be able to advertise them as organic.
  • What would happen if I planted these seeds in my garden?
    The only difference between our microgreen seeds and regular seeds, are that microgreen seeds have to be extremely clean and consumable out of the pack. They are the same seeds, otherwise, that you would use to grow garden vegetables from, so if you planted our seeds regularly, you would get regular veggies.
  • Can I eat out of my coconut bowls?
    Our coconut bowls have been sourced to the highest standarts, and are food grade, however, we do not recommend using them for eating, and only recommend using them for planting. If you decide to eat out of these bowls, you do so at your own risk, and Immature Garden cannot be held responsible for any food related negative consequences.
  • My bowl developed a thin crack, do I need to order a new one?
    Thin cracks sometimes develop with time or improper care. During the many, many test runs we had, some of our bowls developed thin cracks too. We use them still to this day. Since you do not water enough to completely inundate the soil, as long as the greens grow, you should be okay to continue using them. In summary, unless the crack is substantial, and you still have success growing your Immature Greens in them, you can continue using them. Alternatively, we sell single coconut bowls, so that you can replace yours without the need for a new kit. With proper care, your bowls should last years.
  • How do I care for my coconut bowls?
    1. Hand Wash Only: Gently hand wash your coconut bowls with lukewarm water and mild dish soap after each use. Avoid using abrasive sponges or brushes that may scratch the surface. 2. Avoid Soaking: Do not soak your coconut bowls in water for extended periods, as this can cause the coconut shell to absorb water and potentially crack. 3. Air Dry Thoroughly: After washing, rinse your coconut bowls thoroughly and air dry them upside down on a drying rack or towel to prevent water from pooling inside. 4. Oil Regularly: To maintain the natural luster of your coconut bowls, oil them regularly with coconut oil, olive oil, or any food-safe oil. Simply apply a thin layer of oil to the inside and outside of the bowls using a soft cloth, then wipe off any excess oil. 5. Store Properly: Store your coconut bowls in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Avoid stacking them to prevent deformation. 6. Not Microwave or Dishwasher Safe: Coconut bowls are not suitable for use in the microwave or dishwasher. Exposing them to high heat or prolonged moisture can damage the natural fibers of the coconut shell. 7. Use with Care: Handle your coconut bowls with care to avoid dropping or knocking them against hard surfaces, as this may cause cracks or chips.
