Professional Microgreens Tray - No Holes - 50mm DeepMyAquaponics
This Professional Microgreens tray is 50mm deep. This makes it sturdier than the 30mm deep Professional Microgreens tray for those wanting to add more grow media to their trays. This tray is also used as a "water reservoir" when wanting to water your microgreen from the bottom when using the 30mm deep Professional Microgreens Tray WITH HOLES. It is made of durable plastic and is a reusable microgreens tray. Ideal for the more serious microgreens farmer, though it can be used by anybody wanting to grow microgreens on a regular basis.
This 50mm deep professional Microgreens tray could also be used as a fodder tray. It could also be used as a lid to block out sunlight during the first few days of germination for your microgreens.
Being Used as Lid during Germination to Block out light to Prompt Seeds to Germinate
The bottom of the Professional Microgreens tray has patterned indentations to evenly distribute and store water throughout the entire microgreens tray, thus allowing grow media such as cocopeat, composted soil or rockwool to wick more water as it dries.
How to use this Microgreens tray?
Fill the bottom of the plastic tray with cocopeat, compost soil, rockwool mat or other growmedia. Use a hand held spray bottle to spray water onto the media. Let the water soak thoroughly. Wait 10 minutes and do one last water spray. Then sprinkle the seeds evenly over the grow media (quite an art with the smaller seeds - but you will get the hang of it) . Spray water over the seeds.
If possible cover the tray with a piece of cardboard so that the seeds are in complete darkness (OR USE ANOTHER OF THESE MICROGREENS TRAY AS A LID for the bottom tray) . Keep it covered for 2-3 days or until after most of the seeds have germinated, then slowly introduce light to it (not direct sunlight as it can burn off the new shoots). Keep on watering at least twice per day, ensuring that the media/seeds are always moist (not water logged).
For bigger seeds like peas and sunflower, let them soak in water for 6-8 hours (or overnight) before spreading them on the cocopeat mat.
Alternatively use this 50mm deep Microgreens tray as the water reservoir for the top tray (with holes). The Grow media on the top tray with th eholes will then wick up water as required from the deeper tray that is filled with water.

Good quality and sturdy
I enjoy working with this 50mm deep tray. It is perfect for both blackout phases and very sturdy. The mesh tray is a perfect fit and I find this combination is my "go-to" of choice.
