How To Grow China Rose Radish Microgreens: Place a tray with holes inside a tray with no holes. Fill the tray with no holes with an inch of fine compost. Compact the compost. Spread the China Rose Radish seeds evenly over the compost, leaving a small bit of space between each seed. Press the seeds into the soil. Water the seeds and soil. Place a tray with no holes on top of the seeds and soil. Add roughly 4kg of weight into the tray, so the seeds are kept pressed into the soil.

After 3 - 4 days the China Rose Radish microgreens will be pushing the weighted tray into the air. Remove the weighted tray. Water the microgreens from the top. Place them under a grow light, onto a window sill, or into light in a greenhouse. When in light, water each day by pouring water into the bottom,until day 6 - 8.

Between day 6 - 8, harvest all of the microgreens using a sharp knife or scissors. Store the harvested microgreens in the refrigerator.
