Yes, to grow microgreens. Ideally, you will need a tray with holes as well as a bottom tray. This can be one of our shallow microgreen trays with no holes or a flood tray like those used in our Automated Grow Rack system for hydroponic growing.

Excess water in your microgreen trays can lead to mold. Growing trays with holes help drain extra water into the bottom tray. Bootstrap Farmer heavy-duty microgreen trays have 36 drainage holes to remove excess water while being small enough to hold in growing media. Helping you prevent mold issues before they start.

HOW DO YOU USE A Bootstrap Farmer Shallow 1020 Microgreen Trays?

Microgreen trays are planting trays used to grow essentially “baby plants”. The planting tray is used by adding a growing media, densely seeding the tray, and setting it under lights to grow.

Many will water from above with a misting spray bottle; some prefer to use another 1020 shallow tray without drainage holes beneath the shallow tray with drainage holes to water from below.

These microgreen planting trays are called the 1020 because they are roughly 10 inches by 20 inches. (See exact measurements below) We also carry shallow 1010 trays and 5×5 trays for growing microgreens.


All of our heavy-duty planting trays are designed to be reused over and over again. They can be hosed off,  washed in hot water, sterilized, and even run through the dishwasher (Make sure to turn off the heated dry cycle). Check out this article on How to Wash and Care for Trays for best practices in keeping your trays clean for optimum disease prevention. Flimsy planting trays from other manufacturers will often bend and crack during the washing process as they are not designed to hold their own weight while full of water.


Most growing media cannot be reused immediately for growing microgreens. This allows for too much potential for mold growth. If you are wondering what else you can do with the leftover growing media once you are done harvesting, check out this article on Reusing Spent Trays of Microgreens.

CAN I GROW MICROGREENS AT HOME with Bootstrap Farmer Shallow 1020 Microgreen Trays?

Definitely, anyone can grow microgreens at home. Whether you live in a tiny apartment or have a whole room you can dedicate to growing; there is a microgreen setup that will work for you. One or two of our planting trays can fit onto a countertop or wide window sill in small spaces. Under counter LED lights can be used to maximize growth in dark spaces.

If you have a place to put in a small 2 feet by 4 feet shelving rack, you can easily grow up to 20 trays of microgreens at a time. Putting lights, like our popular LED Strip Grow Lights, on your shelves or under your counters will maximize your growing potential even if you don’t get a lot of sun in your growing space.
