Hydroponic microgreens have a distinct advantage over those grown in trays of substrates or soil mixes in that no granular growing medium needs to be used. The high sowing rate and density of microgreens means small particles of substrate can end up in the foliage and since microgreens are not usually washed after harvest, this poses a risk of crunchy grit ending up in the final dish.

For this reason, hydroponic microgreens are best produced on a thin mat or capillary pad such as the NFT Hydro Fiber Paper that holds the seed in place and retains some moisture for germination.
