The amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
2 – 3 times per day
How often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
2 – 5 days
The 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.
2 to 1
The amount of Sprouts, Grass, Greens or Micro-Greens produced by 1 unit of Seed. For Example 2:1 means that 1 pound of Seed will produce 2 pounds of Sprouts or whatever crop you are growing.
Soak 1/3 to 1 cup of beans in cool water for 8-12 hours.

Drain off soak water.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain thoroughly.

Microgreens in general prefer a soil pH of near 6.0 at germination in their water, soil or hydroponic solution. Most municipal water systems are too high (too acidic) in pH for optimum swelling and shoot strength. See “pH balancing your water” guideline for more.
Soil and soil-less media like lava rock or other aggregates are generally interchangeable. Seeds requiring soil generally prefer a denser media to help shed the seed coat.
Larger seeds like sunflower should be harvested sooner (7-10 days) to avoid the stems getting woody.
The estimated days for each of the steps below are relative and might vary according to your situation. Use them as a guide.


Best with larger seeds – Chard-Buckwheat-Pea-Beet-Cilantro-Sunflower

Soil Sterilization is not necessary if you are using drained trays and your soil is clean, but if you plan to, you should bake soil for 45 min @ 180F. Soil should be 180-200 (but not over)


Use cold water (always pH balanced)
Soak for 12-24 hrs typically
Refrigerate in warm weather
Put in colander drain, soak, rinse, mist seed thoroughly and keep damp for 24-36 hrs until they sprout in the colander. Treat 2-3 times daily.


4 cups water in tray
1 ½ ” – 2″ soil on top of water, tamp lightly (spatula or lid)
Mist the surface to dampen
Cover soil surface with seed (use guides below for amount of seeds)
Press gently so base of seed has firm contact
Thoroughly mist seed so it glistens
Sprinkle with 1/8-1/4″ soil over the top and mist over the top
Mist blackout dome and cover (4-5 days)
Mist every 12 hrs
Recommend – Extra Strength Trays


Test water with litmus strips or solution that will allow a range of 4.0-8.0
At pH 7.0, 2 tsp/gal of lemon juice should take it down to ideal of slightly less than 6.0. Test various readings and ratios using that as your guide.
Be sure to shake well each use
All water sources should be adjusted throughout the process.
