Mesh microgreen trays are perfect for when the application requires a bit more drainage ie, Rockwool cubes, soil blocking, and various microgreens. These 1020 mesh trays work great with our 1020 shallow microgreen trays without holes for easy bottom-watering.

What varieties of microgreens are these trays suited for? I can imagine larger seeds like sunflower or peas working well, but not something like arugula. Do you have a list of microgreens suitable to these trays?
Mesh trays are generally used for large seeded crops like peas, sunflower, radish, wheatgrass or for fodder crops, all of which have larger diameter roots. As long as you are using a growing media like soil or coco coir they can be used for smaller seeded crops if you need increased drainage.
I wanted to know what is better for root integrity. Using either the mesh or the holed shallow microgreens trays when growing sprouts with a cococoir matt. Do the mesh holes creat alot of root breakage when pulling the coir Matt's out of the trays? I want to be able to pull the coir Matt's out with good root integrity when giving the sprouts to friends and possibly selling the sprouts in the future. But also I want to bottom feed the sprouts and was hoping the holes would allow the roots to reach for the water solution kept in the solid tray. Also, I wondered if the deeper solid tray mixed with the short mesh tray would be a good way to have both air and bottom water feed. Regards, Shane Allan
1020 SHALLOW MESH MICROGREEN TRAYS - EXTRA STRENGTH 1" DEEP Will this fit in the 1020 blue, heavy duty trays I have purchased from you? I am looking for an insert to the blue trays that props up a coco pad to not be in water, but roots can reach water in tray below the grooves. Thanks!
These shallow microgreen trays will sit on top of any of our 1020 trays. So if you are using the 1" deep microgreen trays with a standard 2.25" 1020 tray then there will be about a 1" gap between the bottom of the top tray and the bottom of the lower tray.
