Why are some types of Microgreens easier to grow than others?
The easiest to grow Microgreens (Level 1 - Easy) have fewer steps in the growing process and are less susceptible to some Microgreen Growing problems (mold, damping off etc). A few of the Microgreens in this category are Salad, Kale, Arugula, Mustard, Broccoli, Cabbage, and Radish.
The next level of Microgreens (Level 2 - Intermediate) have a few more steps such as soaking the seeds before planting and applying weight (or stacking) to the seeds after planting. A few of the Microgreens in this category are Peas, Sunflowers, and Beets.
The third level of Microgreens (Level 3 - Advanced) are those hardest to grow. Though the steps for growing these are similar to Level 2 Microgreens, they take a lot longer to grow. A couple of Microgreens in this category are Basil and Cilantro.
