14. Are microgreens safe for dogs to consume?

Certain microgreens are safe for dogs. Many Hamama fur-friends enjoy eating greens. Microgreens have high levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, plus a variety of minerals such as magnesium, calcium and iron, which is beneficial for dogs. To add these microgreens to your dog's diet, you can chop them up or blend them before mixing them in with their regular pet food. The recommended guideline for mixing microgreens with their food is that microgreens should represent approximately 10% of their diet. However, some microgreens may be toxic for dogs, so please so speak with your vet before adding anything to your dog's diet.

16. Can I replace eating my vegetables with microgreens?

Microgreens aren't intended to completely replace full meals that give you a good sense of satiety, but by adding a handful of microgreens to your meals (or even alone as a snack), you are getting a big dose of added nutrients and vitamins.


17. Do the microgreens re-grow after harvesting?

No, you're eating up the plant, so there's nothing left to grow! Compost the used Seed Quilt in your green bin and plant a new Seed Quilt.


18. My home doesn't have much indoor light, will this still work for me?

Yes, microgreens don't need much light to grow. Just put your kit near a window or in a room with regular ceiling lighting.


19. I'm a notorious plant killer, are you sure I can do this?

Yes! We've converted thousands of plant killers into plant lovers. We believe in the simplicity of our growing system! Because you don't have to remember to water, there's nothing to mess up.


20. What's the difference between microgreens and sprouts?

Sprouts are the first visible stage of germination & microgreens are the next stage (after the first set of cotyledons and sometimes true leaves show, but before the second set). Sprouts take under a week to grow while microgreens take around 7-21 days, depending on the variety. Unlike microgreen seeds, sprout seeds are grown in water and need to be rinsed twice a day to ensure that they do not mold.
