View Full Version : Wheatgrass growing question
A few of my plastic trays have holes on the bottom, and I'm growing them on a plastic folding/party table. I used to have a towel underneath to soak up residual water, but found that the roots grabbed right onto the towel, so I didn't think that was ideal, so now it's just on the bare plastic. Is this a problem?
I'm not sure if it's a problem or not.. :confused:
I ordered sets of trays from here (http://www.wheatgrasskits.com/growingsupplies.htm)because I wanted to plant in the plastic trays with slits in the bottom, then I ordered the solid plastic trays to set them in. No more plant potty ;). *Ü*

Just make a space between the Plastic and the Tray so AIR can Circulate around the Tray........

i grow it outdoors til it gets to cold in late fall
after that indoors in cheap plastic dish pans i buy at dollar store ,
i put 5" of soil from my garden in them . then after broadcasting seeds into i cover with quarter inch o soil
I'm not very good about going into detail -- but, I don't sit my growing tray directly down into the plastic catch tray. I raise it up above the top of the catch tray using plastic deli containers as spacers.
This way it can breathe and still catch drips. *Ü*
Do you guys think using black plastic bags as cover during the initial three days is a problem? I know polysheet, pisqueen plastic is recommended, so this should be alright, correct?
Ok, I just harvested my first tray. It seemed to need harvesting at a shorter height than it seems others get harvested by the videos. The blades ranged in length from 4.5" - 7" or 7.5 maximum. I'm measuring from the root at the sprout to the tip. The blades split and everything, and the blade tips had begun going a bit yellow, so that definitely means time to harvest, right? I had consistent watering, azomite, a good organic soil/peat moss mix, and a good breeze through the room.

I did mine hydroponically and it was also pretty short.
