    Haven't done microgreens, but I have done sprouts (I guess the only difference is that sprouts grow in a wet jar, and microgreens grow in soil?). Sprouts are insanely easy...and delish.

    I thought they grew as weeds. At least that is my experience. They also have thorns IIRC. I wasn't too crazy about them.

    Edit: ok he says it's a weed in the video

    I saw a video a while back on plant learning, using mimosas...they'd drop them from a very low height at regular intervals, and eventually the plants became desensitized to it and wouldn't curl from the drop. If they dropped them in a different way, or at a different interval, they'd still curl up though, suggesting that they weren't just desensitized, they actually learned that the initial drops were not threatening...or something to that effect. Wish I could find the video again.

    Maybe jigglypuff can try touching them at the same time every day to see if the same thing happens.
