HOW TO GROW YOUR OWN WHEATGRASS
For First Time Growers
1. First purchase our wheatgrass starter kit. (link to purchase)
2. Soak your seeds overnight (8-12 hours in mason jar or large glass container, filling enough to totally submerge the seed) 1 and ˝ cup dry seed for small tray.
3. After soaking, drain seed in your sprout bag and rinse well. Put sprout bag with seed in colander or hang to drip. Very important to rinse seed at least three times a day (you can’t over rinse), until a small tail appears.
4. Plant your seed on top of soil (basic potting soil or top soil is fine). Spread evenly, one layer thick. Cover seed with newspaper, or another tray for the first three or four days until the grass starts to grow(the cover represents the earth covering the seed).
5. First three days, water heavy, until the tray starts to drip. Gently at first so as not to disturb the seed. Mist your seed to keep wet throughout the day and replace cover.
6. Uncover when the grass starts lifting the top tray off, and grow in in-direct sunlight until you see the blades split. Approximately 7-10 days in the summer and 10-14 days in the winter. There is no set height for your grass, just watch for the second shoot. Air circulation is important under your tray as well as through your grass. Place near window in summer or have a fan near the tray.
7. Time to harvest. After you start seeing a split in the grass, cut it with a sharp scissors right above the root. If you’d like a second growth, you can grow it for the animals in your house, but it is not as nutritious as the first. Cut grass, stored in Evert Fresh bags, will last up to 14 days in the refrigerator. Always store your cut grass in the refrigerator.
