Grow your own step by step guide. RAINBOW CHARD
Step 1: Soak the seed in warm water overnight (8-12 hours), this helps with the germination process.
Step 2: Fill the tray with holes 3/4 full with soil, pat down the soil gently so the soil is flat and moisten thoroughly.
Step 3: Sprinkle the seeds thinly and evenly on to the moistened soil, try not to have seeds on top of one another. Add the rest of the soil to cover the seeds.
Step 4: We recommend seeds to sprout (germinate) in the dark so simply put the tray without holes over the top and put somewhere warm. Germination can be from 3-10 days depending on conditions. Keep soil moist at all times by misting it when needed.
Step 5: When seeds have started to sprout and are about 2cm tall, remove the lid and place this under the tray with the holes. Place in an area where it will have good light such as a windowsill, apply the clear dome, wait and watch.
Your Micro Rainbow Chard will be ready in about 2-3 weeks. Add water to the tray without holes every other day (not too much water just so the bottom of the tray is just covered). The soil will soak up the water and feed the root system. If it is very warm you may not need the clear dome.
When your Rainbow chard is ready simply snip with clean scissors, wash and add to your dish.
