Tangy Chia Small Live Tray
These small sized live home growing trays are great for your home kitchen and people who enjoy the growing, cultivating and harvesting of Microgreens. With our live trays most of the cultivation and growing has been done, however we recommend storing your live tray in a well ventilated, temperature controlled space. Also light watering once a day is recommended.
Some Quick Facts:
- Our microgreens are harvested on a regular weekly basis, to ensure that our customers receive the freshest produce and the highest quality. Fully compostable/biodegradable packaging is used to stay environmentally conscious. Our produce remains mold free for up to 14 days if Stored Correctly
- If you prefer your microgreens in a live growing plant tray, please take the following into account, Caution! Some microgreen varieties tend to form mold in the root area, if not properly attended to. Make sure that your planting mat is well ventilated at all times. Please note that the weight of the products offered in live growing trays include the grow mats, water, roots and packaging. This is why the usable plant weight is generally 40-50% below the declaration. All live grow tray suppliers have the same complications when it comes to mold control. See what Wikipedia has to say!
- The #Microgreen Team works on food safe premises and is fully government approved. We care about the environment, hence why we only use compostable/biodegradable packaging.

To retain their full nutritional values, they are best used raw.
Let’s dive into their nutritional values:
