Baby Blanket Tray (5 pk)

1 Customer review


SKU: BBTR Categories: ,

Pre-cut to fit 10×20 microgreen tray (5 pre cut sheets)

Product of India

Designed to save the muss and fuss involved in growing microgreens in soil, Baby Blanket is a felted jute grass mat that is processed by a water method and not treated chemically. This food safe product is grown and manufactured using organic practices but is not certified organic. (In Canada only, foods can be certified organic.)

Using Baby Blanket in combination with Sea Spray Kelp or an organic natural fertilizer of your choice, you will have all the advantages of soil growing without the disadvantages of the mess. Use it for wheat and barley grass, buckwheat, cabbage family microgreens, sunflower and pea shoots and any other microgreen varieties that do not specifically require soil. It is also great for gelatinous seeds like arugula, flax and cress.

Cut the baby blanket to size with scissors, and place in your preferred growing tray that does have drainage. Soak in water and ring out the excess. Keep the seeds moist by sprinkling or misting with water as required.

Baby Blanket can be reused. Remove plant material from top and bottom of blanket. Dry it and carefully scrape and shake clean off old roots. Sanitize and remove any plant pathogens by placing in boiling water for a few minutes.

Jute mats, or baby blanket, and hemp mats, are used as an alternative to soil and the procedures are similar to microgreen and hydroponic growing.

  • Soak the mat and wring out until damp.

  • Soak large, fibrous and grain seed, and place on the blanket. Do not soak small soft-hulled seeds (cabbage family, radish, mustard). Alfalfa and clover are soaked long like a fibrous seed.

  • You may cover and put under weight or put under a dome, and when watering only mist from above. We usually cover and place weight on top.

  • Once the weight is off, or germination has begun, mist a couple times per day. If you see water pooling in the corner, you have misted enough.

  • Once roots reach through the bottom of the mat they can be watered from below.

Anything can be grown on fibre mats, but the resulting shoots are never as large or robust as seeds grown on soil. To make them bigger
you should water with a liquid fertilizer.

    Highly recommend

    I purchased these because I wanted a grow medium that could be reused. I have never used the hemp mats available, but have been advised by other users that they are not reusable. Not interested In almost $4 a piece for a one time grow. (I grow at least 4 trays every 3/4 weeks.) These jute mats are reusable for a number of times. I get about 5 grows out of each mat before they become too thin to use again. It is work to clean the roots and left over stems but at a cost of $2 per blanket divided by 5 grows ($.40), I’ll keep cleaning my mats.
