Broccoli microgreens are vegetables that are harvested just after they have sprouted and produced their first set of true leaves. Despite their small size, they pack a nutritional punch, often containing higher nutrient levels than more mature vegetable greens.
Microgreens are relatively easy to grow on a small scale and can also thrive indoors if indirect bright light is available.Broccoli has large flower heads, usually dark green in color, arranged in a tree-like structure branching out from a thick stalk which is usually light green.
The mass of flower heads is surrounded by leaves.Follow the steps to grow your own Microgreens:Select a container having 4-6 inch upper diameter.Fill the container with well drained and nutrient rich soil leaving some space (About 1 inch) below rim.Scatter seeds over potting soil in a planter and cover with another thin layer of soil.Mist the soil with water and Cover the seed container with a transparent plastic paper.Place near a source of bright indirect sunlight or under artificial bright light.Continue to mist the seeds to keep the soil moist.
