How to Grow 5 lbs of Sunflower Microgreens the IHG Method

Sunnies are my favorite. Great taste and great growers. Before this grow, the peas just a couple videos ago were my heaviest harvest to date. This one surpassed that. I believe I’ve reached the max capacity I can with growing sunflowers…and a couple others as well. I hope you enjoyed the grow and look for my book coming out soon which details all of my growing techniques. Please like, sub, and comment.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Hi Brent! Doing my first sunflower grow based on your book. So far so good! I've watched both sunflower videos and checked the book but I'm a bit confused on when I should stop using the weight. Sorry if I missed it somewhere!

  2. What a great video, I'm so glad I stumbled across your channel Brent from Central Arkansas!

    I'm slowly making my way through your microgreens videos, and am probably going to buy your book!

    One small question if I may: after the diluted bleach soak, do you rinse them off? Or just drain (no rinse), spread into tray, and spray with basic antifungal?

    Thank you!

  3. Hey Brent, Another awesome video. What an incredible yield! Bought Your Ebook Kindle version yesterday. Started My first trays using Your method this morning. Am really looking forward to seeing how things turn out! Thanks so much for Your guidance through Your videos!

  4. Congrats Brent, great results. I envy u. Over here 400 gm sunflower seed costs USD 15.20 ! I get mine from Taiwan. There is violet light around your early stage (yellow leaves) sunflower . Did u grow it indoors?

    Best, Karen

  5. Absolutely love your grow along sessions Brent. I am about to start my operations and believe that you are the master of Peas and Sunflowers with this no medium method. Stunning mate

  6. I have found when harvesting my own micro greens that as long as you have a sharp knife and are careful not to tare the matt an oscillating turkey carving knife works really well and cuts down on the hard cutting time.

  7. Your videos are always encouraging. Thank you so much for doing them. I tried to find this answer in older videos but haven't been successful What screen are you using for the base of the microgreens?
