    I like a little backstory. It’s always great to see the context in which people started from. Thanks again for some incredible content.

    Hydrogen peroxide breaks down when exposed to light and heat, so her bottle might not have that much hydrogen peroxide in it since it is not opaque. That’s the reason why it comes in those brown bottles.

    Great video, I learned a lot.

    Is the hydrogen peroxide dilution ratio figured using 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide?

    It seemed to me that Vanessa is only using the 1″ trays for her pea greens and 2″ for everything else. Is that because the peas stand up well while the others can fall over? How full does she fill them then? Or did I miss all that?

    Thanks Curtis! I’ve had seeds and trays to start microgreens for almost a year but the idea of mold and bacteria scared me away from doing them. This, and your many other microgreens videos have helped to alleviate that fear I had. We aren’t allowed to sell them at any Farmers Markets in the area. Government regs are killing people! And are keeping us from helping each other. Again, thanks

    Where’s the best spot in Canada to buy lighting like Vanessa has?

      In last weeks Q&A I linked to the Sunblaster lights. That was an Amazon.ca link, but they can also be found at most hydroponic type stores.

    Compost in the mix looks very promising. Check her Sunflower comparison, with and without compost:

    Where does she get her flats? are they available online?

      She buys those locally. Those 2″ flats are not hard to find. Just Google around for a minute. They’re everywhere.

    Thanks! That was a great one with a LOT of value. I’d wish to see more indoor operations as well and love to hear about their back story too. It’s great to know a part of the why :)

    Thankks Curtis for sharing.
    Starting from zero. I would like to take the course from Rob Avis on Solar Greenhouse Design when it pops up again. I will also definitely take yours also.
    Regarding the shelves, what typ of shelve should I look for (I am in France)
    I am sure that the class is covering trays, light,…)

      Nice. For shelves, just get similar ones as she has. They are very common.

    Very clean operation! I was wondering if all her trays are the 1″ germination flats or 2″, all her brassica trays looked much deeper. Thanks!

      She’s using all 2″ deep flats. You can buy those anywhere.

    Wow! This was spot on Curtis. I originally watched the individual clips and eventually got to the full-length video. This really did deliver “nuts & bolts” . Was also very impressed at the end when Vanessa got into the packaging and her concerns about being “green” or environmentally aware, things we tend to forget or put aside when trying to make a business profitable. Go Girl!

      Right on. Yes, Vanessa is a gem and I’m sure this won’t be the last time you guys here from her ;)

    Great stuff. Tons of good points on a practical level that will help me set up my micro greens farm later this year.

    I would like to READ someone’s bio because it’s faster than watching a video. I am more interested in how they financed their project and how much cash they started with! Please do a video on micro greens that grow outside in summer such as red amaranth. I know there are oriental greens that are adapted well to heat, but I don’t know how to grow them as micro greens. Thanks.

    Would love to see the back story of the farmers but as stand alone videos. As someone who is trying to break into this market knowing how others did it can absolutely bring value to the videos. If they are stand alone then people can choose whether to watch them or not.

    I agree, really great, really interesting. This is just right for me. I don’t do some things that you or she do, but, understanding all the permutations the a crop requires allows me to trial, to judge and ultimately to find this that work in my context.
    There were still a few bits I either missed or were not covered – like overall ambient temperature and what lights she uses, are they left on 24 :good: B-)

    Great video containing the kind of information I’m looking for.
    Even if I have the experience there is always a need to learn new techniques as well as new tricks.

    Thank you
