Put 1/4 cup of seed - for a 5x5 Inch Tray, in a jar.
Sunflower seeds float. To soak them all evenly, fill the jar to the top with cool water and cover with a lid.
Soak for 8-12 hours.
Drain off soak water. Never Soak them again.
Rinse and Drain again with cool water - every 8-12 hours.
When your seeds have the tiniest root showing, plant them on a thoroughly moistened medium.
Cover your crop with another tray or plate, to keep light out and moisture in.
Keep your medium moist by watering gently as needed.
When your plants have begun to push up the cover, remove the cover and move your crop to a well lit location.
Harvest when the leaves are open and most of them have shed their hulls.
Cut just above the medium, with a scissors or sharp knife.
SOAK8 - 12 hoursThe amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
RINSE / DRAIN2 times per dayHow often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
PLANTDay 2Approximate time you will plant your crop if growing Grass, Greens, or Micro-Greens, after soaking your seeds. If your seeds do not soak they will get planted right off the bat.
HARVEST8 - 12 daysThe time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.
