How To Grow Black Oil Sunflower Microgreens: Place a tray with holes inside a tray with no holes. Fill the tray with holes with 1 inch of fine compost. Compact the compost. Spread the Sunflower 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. 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 5 - 6 days the Sunflower microgreens will be pushing the weighted tray into the air. Remove the weighted tray, water the microgreens from the top and place them under a grow light, onto a window sill, or into light in a greenhouse.

On day 7 - 8, remove the excess seed husks from the leaves. Wetting the husks and leaves beforehand makes the husks softer and easier to remove. When in light, water each day by pouring water into the bottom tray ,until day 10 - 12.

Between day 10 - 12, harvest all of the microgreens using a sharp knife or scissors. Store the harvested microgreens in the refrigerator.
