Samantha Akkineni shares a few gardening tips

Samantha Akkineni took to Instagram to share a few photos of her home garden. To celebrate the first harvest of her cabbage microgreen crop, Samantha shared a few photos of her lush green crop. In the photos, Samantha is busy harvesting her crops! She is carefully harvesting her crop with a pair of scissors. She also took to the caption to share the process that she follows to grow her microgreens
 
Samantha shared the photos of her harvesting her crops with a detailed step by step tutorial of micro farming at home! She wrote, "My first harvest of cabbage microgreens.. For those of you interested in growing your own ... all you need is a tray , cocopeat , seeds and a cool room (I used my bedroom ) that has a window that lets sunlight partially in .. if the tray isn’t getting much sunlight , a bed side lamp can be placed near it .. Step 1: fill the tray with cocopeat ... leave room at the top Step 2: sprinkle the seeds Step 3: spray water generously till the cocopeat is completely moist and cover the tray. Place the tray in the coolest area of your house next to a window .. if there is less sunlight you can use a bedside lamp (I did that ) . Leave it for 4 days .. (you can check on it everyday you ll see it sprout ) . On the 5th day remove the cover of the tray and spray water generously once everyday .. By day 8 your microgreens are ready to harvest upto day 14... I got my seeds from @zeptogreens .. happy gardening ."
 
Maybe we should all take a tip or two from Samantha and start our very own mini farms
 
On the work front, Samantha will next appear in the film Kaathu Vaakula Rendu Kaadhal. The film will also feature Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanathara.
