View Full Version : Sprouting in high humidity
09-11-2010, 07:09 PM
My ac unit is not very reliable and after a couple failed atempts of them spoiling I figured I would only be able to have sprouts in the cooler months. also I found I really only liked the simpler sprouts like straight mixes.But then I diddnt get to experiment that much as they would spoil.Happy the cooler months are on the way.Its still been pretty warm outside.
Has anyone else had this problem,is it possible to sprout in humidity,or in the fridge?
I wish I could help you, but we live in the desert and I don't have the humidity problems. I'd sure have the heat problems though if not for our AC...
How much (and in what) are you sprouting at once? *Ü*

I may be off by a couple degrees but the best rate of germination for majority of seeds takes place between 65-75 or thereabout. Beyond those you will probably notice less germination and slower growth. If the humidity is high a fan placed nearby might help drop temps a bit and speed growth and higher germination rate while reducing spoilage.
Well shoot - I posted a long reply yesterday here with a link to another posting of mine with pictures of my sprouting lids and setup. I don't have time right now, but I'll try to repost it later today. *Ü*
