How to grow Wheat Grass
The first step is selecting quality
wheat berries. Ours are organically grown hard, red spring wheat berries.
Next soak one cup of wheat berries overnight (a
minimum of 12 hours). The next day you should see some of the berries starting
to sprout. Rinse well 4-5 times and let excess moisture drain.
Get 2 large Glad storage containers. Drill holes in
the bottom of
Put about 2" of substrate in the bottom (I use an
equal mix of sand and coconut coir). Water it well and allow it to drain. Layer
the berries evenly on top. Don't worry about them overlapping. Keep in a dark
place until they sprout.
In a few days the sprouts will be 1" tall.
At one week they will be 5-7" tall.
