www.sproutpeople.com for sprouting info from experts
i dont like jars as they promote mold development ,
i opt for plastic colanders like below filled with mung sprouts

I sprouted some chickpeas that way after seeing the pic, it was quite easy. It took a couple days and I just kept them by the kitchen sink.
Then I used the clay saucer method for flax and failed horribly, lol!
Then I tried quinoa, again with the colander and they spouted easily and quickly. I have some tabbouleh in the fridge right now made with them.

If you have Alissa Cohen's LIVING ON LIVE FOOD, follow the chart that starts on page 75
I sprout chickpeas all the time to make raw hummus. Here's how I do it:
1. Soak 1 cup dry chickpeas overnight in glass bowl
2. Rinse chickpeas, return to bowl, cover with paper towel, leave on counter (not in direct sun)
3. Rinse chickpeas 2 to 3 times per day
4. Mine usually sprout the second day, but I hear it can take up to 4 days
1 cup dry yields about 4 cups sprouted
You've gotten great advice! I'll toss one more option into the pot. I like using paint strainer bags (I got them at Sherwin Williams for cheap).
I just sprouted 3 bags (about 2.5 pounds) of sunflower seeds. I used to just soak them, dehydrate them and have them ready to go. But after watches Renee Oswald's videos on YouTube, I now sprout them before dehydrating. It took about 2 days.
I hang the nut milk bags on a wooden hanger over a tray to catch the drips. They're real easy to soak and rinse inside the bags. I've sprouted chick peas like this too with 100% success. *Ü*
