View Full Version : I can't expose my sprouts to the sun

Hi. I just sprouted some alfalfa seeds but the final direction is to leave them in the sun for a few hours to green up. Well, it's winter and I have to leave for work before the sun enters my home and come back once it's dark. I don't want to leave them sitting out all day because I assume they'll go bad (or one of the pets will mess with them).
So what do I do? Will they be as nutritious if I can't expose them to sunlight?

Mrs.Papaya ... don't worry about the direct sun -- if you set them in a window that gets just some sun, it is okay -- all day would probably be a bit much to start. But even if they don't get any direct sun, it's okay too --Just so they get lots of light ... uncover them and set them anywhere the curious critters can't get them and they'll be fine.
I have no idea what the response from Freeringop is all about -- total gibberish.
I sprout (mostly) in Mason jars. The last day of their time in the jar is when I put them in the sun. I do this while they're still in the jar.
The rest of the time, they're not "out" of the sun, just sitting on my countertop exposed to indirect sunlight. Loves my sprouts! *Ü*
