    I grow microgreens in the paperpot trays, and bring them both to chefs and to farmers’ market as live trays. When I started this, the bottom trays did not yet exist, which meant I had to grow them in our greenhouse, rather than inside (because water dripping through the trays made too much of a mess and added too much humidity for our indoor spaces).

    I bought one case of 10 trays when they were first offered, not sure how well they would work. That was a mistake! Chefs love the trays – enough so that one actually washes both the bottom trays and the paperpot trays in their dishwashers before returning them to me. Not sure they were intended to be dishwasher safe, but it seems to be no problem, and saves me time before reuse! They also keep the tablecloth at market nice and clean, and are great for tender micros that I don’t like to top water. I also use them for stacking germinating trays, which saves me the step of sanitizing the plexiglass dividers I use otherwise (because peas and sunfowers especially like to actually grow through the holes into the tray above).

    If I can get more of them, I expect to be able to move our winter microgreen production indoors this winter. This will save us a great deal of hassle and money: they won’t be taking up greenhouse space for transplants (when you start transplanting almost everything with the paperpot system, your greenhouse gets small quickly!), and we won’t have to heat the greenhouse in January and February, saving a lot of propane!

    My only complaint with the bottom trays is availability. Because I only bought 10 to start, I don’t have nearly enough. But they have been sold out since. I’m anxiously awaiting the next production run, and hope it happens before winter so I can indeed migrate the micros indoors!

    Best trays for growing microgreens. I have used the traditional trays, and after trialing PaperPot, you will notice a huge difference when it comes to sturdiness for replanting and easiness to clean them. They seem a bit pricey, however they are worth each penny. Those trays will last forever, once you buy them, you will have no reason to replenish them. We will definitely be getting more. Plus Diego is an awesome communicator, responsive with a great sense of humor.

    I love these trays! They are super durable and work great for bottom watering our microgreens. We grow in paper pot trays and standard 10X20’s. These solid trays work great for bottom watering both! We got 50 to start and will be getting more after trialing them. I highly recommend these for other microgreens growers.
