Need some advice with Wheat Grass
Okay. Here is what is happening.
I grew some wheatgrass in the house in my new Tribest Wheatgrass Grower. It was fun and worked great. The only problem I had was fruit flies. They really seem to love the wheatgrass and it is a perfect breeding ground for them.
So... we decided to set the trays on the back porch and get rid of the flies in the house.
Now we have roaches, ants, and fruit flies.
What do you experienced growers recommend?
Thank you all for your help and suggestions
I kept my new batch of wheatgrass in the oven for 3 days. No mold that I could see this time. Unfortunately the flies found it there though.
I have only been using water and spraying it with a squirt bottle. Then, when the grass is about an inch long I have been rinsing it with the hose outside. After that I drain out all the water that I can, put it back on the shelf, and leave it outside.
I am going to start another batch tonight and try the soil method. Also, I will use less seeds to get more air flow.
Some of my supplies came today for the new cover I plan to make. Hopefully that will help as well.
My grass is only growing about 4 or 5 inches tall before it starts to look yellowish on the tips. Hummm.... maybe using the soil will help.
Thanks again for your suggestions! :heart
