Why Choose Silicone Mesh?

Silicone mesh offers several advantages over traditional growing media when it comes to cultivating microgreens:

  1. Excellent Drainage: The open structure of the mesh allows for optimal drainage, preventing water from stagnating around the roots, which can lead to root rot and other issues.
  2. Improved Air Circulation: The gaps in the mesh promote better air circulation, ensuring that your microgreen roots have access to the oxygen they need for healthy growth.
  3. Easy Harvesting: When it’s time to harvest your microgreens, the silicone mesh makes it simple to cut the greens close to the base without the risk of contamination from soil or other growing media.
  4. Reusable and Eco-Friendly: Unlike disposable growing mats, our silicone mesh is designed for repeated use, reducing waste and making it a more environmentally friendly choice for your microgreen setup.
  5. Non-Toxic and Safe: Our silicone mesh is made from food-grade materials, ensuring that it is safe for use with your microgreens and won’t leach any harmful chemicals into your plants.

Proper Care and Maintenance

To ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your silicone mesh growing medium, it’s essential to clean and sterilise it between uses properly:

  • Rinse the mesh thoroughly with water to remove any remaining plant matter or debris
  • Soak the mesh in a solution of hot water and mild dish soap for 10-15 minutes
  • Scrub gently with a soft brush to remove any stubborn residue
  • Rinse the mesh well and allow it to air dry completely before storing or using it again
  • For an extra level of sterilization, you can also soak the mesh in a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution (1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide to 9 parts water) for 10 minutes before rinsing and drying

By following these simple care instructions, your silicone mesh growing medium will provide years of reliable service for your microgreen growing needs.

The Kratky Method: A Simple and Efficient Hydroponic Technique

Our silicone mesh growing medium is perfect for use with the Kratky method, a low-maintenance hydroponic growing technique that is well-suited for microgreens. This method involves placing the silicone mesh inside a 1122 (1020) microgreen tray with holes, which is then placed inside a solid tray holding the nutrient solution.

As the plants consume the nutrients, an air gap forms between the bottom of the mesh and the remaining liquid, allowing the roots to receive oxygen and promote healthy growth. The Kratky method is an excellent choice for those looking to grow microgreens hydroponically with minimal effort and equipment.

To learn more about the Kratky method and how to use it with our silicone mesh growing medium and 1020 microgreen trays, visit our comprehensive guide: The Kratky Method: Growing Microgreens Hydroponically.
