Default baby greens(spring mix)

I am trying to grow baby greens (spring mix) in 10 by 20 flats with a NFT system, does anyone know what i need to grow them on (burlap, coco coir, perlite) baby greens or micro greens are fine on burlap but not sure if burlap will support the bigger mixed greens.

Thanks

I am using coco coir for my Mix and it is working great. It has been about 4 weeks since I planted mine and just getting ready to make my first cutting. I used Only a good PH water to start with because the seed it self gives the plant everything it needs to get started, and then I after a week or so started to introduce a good ph water with nutrients at half the strength. I keep it in an area that gets half the sun and All is doing well. I hope that helps
