Grow-Grow Nut

The Grow-Grow Nut is a coconut shell that helps you to eat healthier and at the same time the Protecting the environment. The concept behind the Grow-Grow Nut is simple: plant your own, vitamin-rich Microgreens on your windowsill and do completely without plastic - both the packaging and the product.

To plant microgreens in the grow groove, you will need Seeds also Coconut tile. This is highly compressed coconut soil that rises when it comes into contact with water - an exciting effect that is definitely worth a look. You can watch the Seeds and the Coconut tile put together your own or on Refill packs to fall back on.

To start with, I recommend a Starter kitthat not only a beautiful grow groove includes. Also three coconut bricks and three packs of delicious seeds will spoil you. You can also use the packaging of the Grow-Grow Nut to make a Lid cut out for these, so that the microgreens come into contact with less light in their first few days. This is good so that the seeds germinate faster and the plant "stretches" and thus becomes larger to reach the light.


The new superfood

The Growing microgreens is easier than you think:

  1. Use one coconut brick per grow groove, place it in your coconut tray and slowly add water until all the soil is soaked.
  2. Now use your microgreens seeds and spread them evenly over the moist coco soil.
  3. Press the seeds onto the soil again a little so that they are in a permanently moist environment.
  4. Moisten the seeds again explicitly from above, e.g. with a Pressure sprayer. Continue to do this continuously during growth.

One Detailed instructions can also be found directly on the Grow-Grow Nut homepage.

There are a number of places to buy microgreens and sprouts. Me recommend from personal experience next to the Store the Grow-Grow Nut the Microgreen-Shopwhich offers a wide selection of high-quality sprouts and microgreens. All seeds are tested by an independent laboratory for perfect Quality tested. At the same time, the business sells no cultivated varietieswhich may look better as mature plants. In fact, uncultivated varieties are generally much better in terms of ingredient and vitamin content.

But what is actually the Difference between microgreens and sprouts? Both variants are one and the same plantonly that Harvest age is different. Sprouts have an age of approx. 3-8 days and microgreens of approx. 8-20 days. Of course, it is not possible to determine the exact age to the day, but it can be said to be roughly the same. You can find more details on this here.
