I read about microgreens not long ago and I decided I will try to grow them at home. I decided to get 4 varieties and experiment with those. The 2 plants are radish, sunflower, onion, and wheat. I got the seeds from a local seed shop online. Microgreens should be ready within 2 weeks.

Sorry guys, I missed a couple of days, but basically I harvested the radish. 
The sunflower seeds are coming along nicely. The onion is a bit weird, I don't think I will grow them again as microgreens. They are slow and don't show leafs at all. The wheat... Well I think I overgrew them. I think the onion and the wheat are good as sprouts, but not too good for microgreens. I will try mustard the next time.

Radish is my favorite! it tastes awesome and growing very rapidly. 
I started using a small 30W LED bulb to help them grow. It is currently winter and the length of sunny period is not too long.

After just one day, there is already some progress with the seeds. Especially with sunflower and radish.

This is right after "planting" the microgreens. I basically just spread the 4 varieties evenly on the rockwhool and watered them with rain water. I currently don't have a PH meter, but rain water should be acidic with is what seedlings need.
