How To Grow Cress Microgreens: Place a tray with holes inside a tray with no holes. Fill the tray with no holes with 1 inch of fine compost. Compact the compost. Spread the Cress microgreen 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. Turn another tray with no holes upside down and place it over the tray with seeds in it, so it will act as a dome. Cress seeds do not need to be weighed down.

After 4 - 5 days remove the dome, water the microgreens from the top and place them under a grow light, onto a window sill, or into light in a greenhouse. Water every second day by pouring water into the bottom tray with no holes, until day 9 - 10.

Cress will be ready to harvest after 9 to 10 days. Harvest all of the microgreens using a sharp knife or scissors. Store the harvested microgreens in the refrigerator.
