Anyone have tips on growing beetmicrogreens. I have tried every possible way,and I still continue to get damping off and a few beet seedlinglings. If anyone can share tips on growing them successful from type of soil they use,germination,etc. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
I use a 1/3 sand, 1/3 finished compost, 1/3 soil mix. I use flat trays to grow in and I like to spread the seeds very thick then cover with a light dusting of the soil mix, then I tamp gently to get soil to seed contact.
Next I mist the top lightly, most of the water comes from the bottom and once it is damp, I pull it and let it drain. After that, it is just a mist over the top once a day until the seeds sprout, then bottom watering is used for 5 to seven days.

Thanks so much for your tip. I also grow mine in flats in a soilless mix. I germinate them in my house than transfer to my greenhouse. I live in zone 6. Might this be a problem?Isn’t it fairly warm in Arkansas? Not good with geography!LOL!
