Thinning technique

After you've transplanted your seedlings to the growing shelf. Each pod should be thinned to 1 - 2 seedlings. To do this pull out the excess seedlings using a pair of tweezers or your fingers gently.

Harvesting technique

Harvest leaf by leaf, starting with the larger outer leaves. Never cut the main stalk! You may also cut the plant in its entirety, but leave 1 inch at the base of each stem for regrowth.
