People Ask us About Microgreen Trays All the Time

Our fabulous customer service team fields a lot of calls from people just starting out with growing microgreens at home as well as experienced microgreen growers looking to fine-tune their operations. Here are a few of the most common questions to help you decide which trays are suitable for your growing operation. If you find you need more help, check out our microgreen growing blogs.

What kind of tray do you use for microgreens? 

Shallow 1020 trays are the best microgreen planting trays. The shallow plastic microgreen tray height is 1 1/4". This allows you to quickly and easily cut your microgreens as close to the roots as possible, which minimizes labor and maximizes your harvestable weight. If you want to brighten up your growing space, check out our popular planting trays that come in various colors - 1020 shallow trays in colors. Same sturdy, made-in-the-USA trays, only the colors are different.

Do microgreen trays need holes?

Yes, to grow microgreens. Ideally, you will need a tray with holes as well as a bottom tray. This can be one of our shallow microgreen trays with no holes or a flood tray like those used in our Automated Grow Rack system for hydroponic growing. Excess water in your microgreen trays can lead to mold. Growing trays with holes help drain extra water into the bottom tray. Bootstrap Farmer heavy-duty microgreen trays have 36 drainage holes to remove excess water while being small enough to hold in growing media. Helping you prevent mold issues before they start. 

How do you use a microgreens growing tray?

Microgreen trays are planting trays used to grow essentially “baby plants”. The planting tray is used by adding a growing media, densely seeding the tray, and setting it under lights to grow. Many will water from above with a misting spray bottle; some prefer to use another 1020 shallow tray without drainage holes beneath the shallow tray with drainage holes to water from below.

What is the size of microgreen trays?

These microgreen planting trays are called the 1020 because they are roughly 10 inches by 20 inches. (See exact measurements below) We also carry shallow 1010 trays and 5x5 trays for growing microgreens. 

Can you reuse microgreen trays?

All of our heavy-duty planting trays are designed to be reused over and over again. They can be hosed off,  washed in hot water, sterilized, and even run through the dishwasher (Make sure to turn off the heated dry cycle). Check out this article on How to Wash and Care for Trays for best practices in keeping your trays clean for optimum disease prevention. Flimsy planting trays from other manufacturers will often bend and crack during the washing process as they are not designed to hold their own weight while full of water. 

Can you reuse growing media for microgreens?

Most growing media cannot be reused immediately for growing microgreens. This allows for too much potential for mold growth. If you are wondering what else you can do with the leftover growing media once you are done harvesting, check out this article on Reusing Spent Trays of Microgreens.

Can I grow microgreens at home?

Definitely, anyone can grow microgreens at home. Whether you live in a tiny apartment or have a whole room you can dedicate to growing; there is a microgreen setup that will work for you. One or two of our planting trays can fit onto a countertop or wide window sill in small spaces. Under counter LED lights can be used to maximize growth in dark spaces. 

If you have a place to put in a small 2 feet by 4 feet shelving rack, you can easily grow up to 20 trays of microgreens at a time. Putting lights, like our popular LED Strip Grow Lights, on your shelves or under your counters will maximize your growing potential even if you don’t get a lot of sun in your growing space.

Pollination Information

Pollination of 1020 Microgreen Trays - Shallow Extra Strength ():



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
